    So which one is better the crop or full image?

    When i saw this on the pc the eyes just hit me, but they are impossible to show at 800 pixels, a bit of a shame, but perhaps there is more of them in the crop?

    Here's a vote for the full image then, just to make things more difficult for you, Tim :greenpbl: --- no, actually because I like the full image composition better. It is STILL extremely close!!! (Aaaaaaand has a bit of a green background, so there :greenpbl: :biggrin: )

    I'll sit on the fence lol !!!
    I like both of them the crop detail is good, but the full frame adds more interest.

    Full image. The out of focus body of the mantid in the background gives a lifelike impression of it's true size.

    So there are aliens on earth!

    I like the full version as well, because I can tell more of what it is. You cropped away the nifty looking top of its' head and those vicious looking jaws and I miss it. And I also like the contrast of the green against the lavender and its' body blurred away. Awesome shot by the way. I've never seen a bug so close!

    Full image is better. For a crop why not try a portrait showing only the right half of the face (insects left). This would show loads of eye detail and could be interesting.

    Full has more character, the crop doesn't do it for me. However, a portrait crop might be better.
