Robber Fly Comments Welcome

Keith Lancaster

Giangiorgio Crisponi
another masterpiece to add to your stunning portfolio, ciao Giangiorgio

Nader Kamyab
Christopher, this is a lovely shot. great detail and color as usual. If I had taken this shot, I would have cleaned the tip of the flower at the right corner. To me it is a bit distracting. By the way, I too hate the rating game on PN. This photo is NOWHERE close to 4. Anyway, Very well done my friend. Regards - Nader P.S. PN dosen't allow me give you 7, therefore you recieve an anonymous 7/7 from me.

Chris Spectular macro! This is a wow but then all your work is so inspiring! My BIG compliments!! Warm regards, Pamela

Christopher Schlaf
Thanks Hello Nader Nader I looked at this shot for a little while before I decided to post it I wasn't to sure if I liked the colors myself. I'm glad you like it.I agree with you about the flower tip in the corner I'm not sure how I missed that but I will clean it up later today.Thanks for pointing that out.As for the rating game I decided to try and not let it bother me. I told myself I was done here and was not going to post here anymore found myself still hanging out. I sure wish that people did what you did and point out flaws instead they hide.Thanks for your constructive criticism. And a big thanks to everyone else for taking the time to comment I do appreciate it. Chris

Thanks everyone for taking the time to comment. Les Im pretty good at photoshop but not good enough to cut all the little hairs out and make it look good plus I know that would take some time and thats one thing that Im running very low on.Thanks for asking and your comment.Also you must know a little German I am a sleepy guy LOL : ) Chris

Alex Elias
I'm glad to see you posting more images. Aside from the technical aspect being outstanding your pictures are very eye catching as far as the composition , colors and originality. You sure take picture to a higher level.

Superb! The colours and the sharpness are fantastic! - Beate -

Mikel Arrizabalaga
Ooooh, Chris, where is your limit? Simply outstanding

Les Berkley
For a guy named 'sleep', you seem pretty awake to me. Truly incredible--nigh unbelievable color on this image, along with amazing sharpness. Was the fly and flower masked out, or did this background occur naturally? (Makes NO difference to me, BTW.)

Antonella Partigliani
Superb! I love it. Ciao Alessia 7/7
