    heh, first i thought it was gonna be a picture of people PLAYING cricket. Nice shot though. I think maybe it just need a liitttle bit more vibrance to it to make it perfect.

    What a strange looking cricket. I like the color contrast. The bright pink flower helps to bring out the dull green in the cricket. Really enjoyed this one.

    I was thinking maybe darken the flower a little bit so that the bug stand out more, if it's not working then forget it...just a suggestion. Also I like the fact that you took this photo from the top instead of in the front. Nice shot by the way.

    nice, very nice, but:
    although the colours are beautiful i think they could be improved but i have no idea how, because a saturation increase would probably burn the purple... maybe a little hue adjustment to create lighter colours. well, anyway, they're pretty as they are too.

    big problem: do you see what colour the cricket is? light green. well do you also see that ultra defocalised giant leaf bottom right? ouch, also green! it messes up the whole center of interest and also taints the clarity of the picture. maybe if you photoshop it... maybe. it'a pity too, it's such a great shot...
