    Here are some of my fly photos from the past few weeks. Havent been around to shoot much, So I figure I could at least post some shots I already had. Shot with Nikon D90, Sigma 105mm Macro in natural light only, overcast most days. C&C always welcome!

    I hugely disagree...in fact, it's almost a little too centered to me. I'd crop it with him a tad more bottom left. Love the background on #1, but the fly doesn't seem that sharp to me in any of them.

    I thought the same thing Nate. I dont know what the deal is. I have the bottom two printed 8x12 and theyre sharp on the prints and on my screen, but as soon as I put them through photobucket, they dont seem sharp anymore. I dont know what the deal is, but it only seems to be the case with my bug photos. Either way, I thought Id share. Thanks!

    Ah...probably good 'ol web compression. You might have better luck if you resize them to 800 wide by xxx tall before uploading that way photobucket doesn't have to do a bad job of resizing them for you. Nice shots anyway. I can see 2 and 3 look like they should be sharp...looks like there was some eye detail to start with that got blurred somehow.

    1) background white seems a bit distracting...
    2) subject needs more light
    3) my favorite..just wish it was a little closer wud love to see more details!
