I like this :) (please note its the tree that was the subject not the snail ;) ) (the tree is not centred but the snail had to be to get all the brances the way I wanted them) Also I don't recommend going within 5 feet of one of these trees. They bite!

I love your observation skills. To be able to find the smallest detail in such a large environment filled with distractions really is amazing. Between the title and the lone snail surrounded by thorns you've created a photo that really does speak to me... It really does amaze me how one minor detail - something so small, could add so much to the photo. It may be breaking "the rules" by centring your composition around what would be accepted as the main subject of the photo, but I think you’ve just proved that throwing the rulebook out the window really does work in photography…

you shouldn've said anything about the snail not being the focus, maybe instead leave it as an exercise for the viewer...

love the contrast and colours, +fav

I love this photo... It looks unreal, but there's just one thing that bothers me about it... just one little thing. The thorn that isn't in focus at the center of this picture.. Nothing big, but it just irks me... Don't mind me, I usually notice little things like that. ;) Awesome work here.

If it was just the tree it was a very good shot! but because of the snail this has become an excellent and very unique and original shot!!! Protected by the tree it sits there! It's just a very beautifull story telling shot!! this is going to my favo's aswell!!!

nice narrow DOF and lack of color, snail kinda jumps out at ya.
only critique is maybe a lower angle work have worked better so the white and black of the horizon in the background are out of the frame leaving on the a gradient from the clouds...
