    4. I just took this one because it was an interesting location for ants to be coming in and out of.

    5. These guys were on a rock about 6" from the ants

    1 i don't think it is close enough to be overly interesting; nice detail however

    2 the blurred out leaves on the left are very distracting

    3 the tones are very interesting. very abstract feeling. my favorite

    4 its too hard to see the ants

    5 again, the background is distracting

    I agree mostly, but if you crop number 5 a little bit you might get the picture you are looking for with having to much distracting leaves, branches, etc in the way. #5 is my favorite also seems has the most detail out of them all.

    Hm, with #2 I was trying to get a photo with that stark drop off in focus, but a different background would definitely have been better. With #5, would you mind cropping it to the point where you feel it makes the background less distracting?

    Nice shots.

    I like where you were going with the feather, but it seems a bit soft to me. Or maybe it just needs a bit more DOF.

    Cheers
