    image 1 – cute bunny. whose is thats ???
    image 2 – its cool, very sharp and amazing that you got the frog still! they are always moving! its a little busy with the grass around the outside…possibly blurring??
    image 3 – very nice, shadows cause a bit of a distraction, but defnatly creature.
    image 4 – also cool, but get closer! not enough detail of that bee! but don’t get stung!
    image 5 – aweee what a cute little drooly dog….

    Image1: solid! stern and attractive pose, nice lighting, natural i assume, great shot!

    Image2: Nice shot as well! were you using manual focus? i see the eye is not quite in focus and thats the key.

    image3: very interesting and unique, but i sense this is regent, and if so, this isnt very new… cool shot none the less.

    Image4: Very nice photo. my kind of shot! maybe crop to increase the size a bit…

    Image5: very nice shot. crop is interesting. although this is a creature i feel his expression is just to human like to be considered so… i would have liked to see him goobering and slobbering and shredding on a bone or how about that chipmunk in your front yard 😛

    Image6: i like the idea. the frog isnt quite sharp, but a good sense of scale indeed.

    Image7: cool shot. what kind of bug is that?

    Image8: very cool looking beetle and a great sense of scale! nice shot! 😛

  3. Hey Charlotte, a few more pics for your comments. Late people, grumble, grumble.
    Image 1: Great shot. Fabulous expression. Background?
    Image 2: Love the way that the frog jumps out of the image (ha!) compared to the grass. Same colour but different.
    Image 3: Just the funniest interpretation of the catagory, very creative. Good treatment.
    Image 4: Technically excellent. Good comp and lighting. ‘Pretty’
    Image 5: What a great face. A bit dark, wouldn’t you say Ryley?
    Image 6: Love the human element ‘fragile’. Great example of ‘scale’! (Class, pay attention)
    Image 7: Great light, good subject. Need something for scale? It’s smaller than you think . . .
    Image 8: This is great. Better than great, actually. The penny makes the image so much more expressive. Smudge right where you don’t want it. Dirt on lens? Focus stacking error? I don’t know. The only flaw in a technically difficult shot.

    1. Very cute natural shot, the expression is very funny I can see quite a personality in this ‘creature’, slightly busy background is a little distracting, still a very good shot.
    2. Great catch, beautiful frog, I like the sharp texture but am missing the eye, overall great Shot
    3.Very interesting concept, love this style of edit/shot(hard light, contrast) technically good as well
    4. Great colour, sneaky focus(not sure where exactly it ends) great soft lighting, very nice picture
    5. Nice vignetting, great expression and angle, would like to see a little more of this ‘creatures’ head at the top, and noticed some noise in the corners(minor details), but nonetheless a fantastic shot
    6. Nice mood, good scale, wish the frog was sharp as apposed to the hand, but I like the idea
    7. Again I like the colour here, I’m very impressed with the sharp eye (It takes a lot of practice and skill to get the right focus with such small depth of field)
    8.Absolutely love this shot, great hard light high contrast extreme macro, fantastic background choice makes this shot different, again a difficult shot very well done, a distracting blur on it’s head (may be the lighting) but great stuff
    9. Great shot,very well done post process, burning? Both this shot and #8 are great examples of making a potentially boring shot suddenly very eye catching and interesting, Great job!

    oh my bugs.image 6 – great concept! get closer, and possible shoot from the opposite side to see the frogs face, but a definatly LOVE.
    image 7 – thast cool, what is that bug sitting on? it is a little hard to understnad becuase i don’t know what he is sitting on, and remember rule of thirds.
    image 8 – creepy to see a bug that close up….very creepy….but definatly cool and i like the lighting it matches the penny underneath.
    image 9 – birds! awesome. good for oyu to get a bird, they are very difficult to take pictures of. im not sure if i like hte vingette or not…its almost a bit distracting….perhaps a slightly lighter vingette would be more effective?
