Alian - I Come in Peace



*This is the most difficult macro shot i have ever taken due to the bug's small size, high speed and unpredictable movements!

Please forgive me if I can't reply to all your messages but I'd like to thank you all in advance who have added my images to their favorites, my pages to their watch and for all your wonderful compliments. It's a big encouragement, it means so much for me and I truly appreciate it

What an amazing shot! Truly one of the most incredible macro shots I have ever seen! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)" />

Vision: To even attempt to take a macro shot of a fly in flight is quite a feat in and of itself. To accomplish it with such clarity is something else! Excellent vision, and very well captured.

Originality: While macro shots of insects are common, I've never seen any shots, macro or otherwise, of an insect in flight that was so clear and large. Very original.

Technique: Your technique is stunning. The background blur is beautifully smooth, and in good contrast to the fly. The fly itself is perfectly captured and amazingly clear given that it was in flight. The motion of the wings is excellently captured.

Impact: This shot has inspired me to improve my macro technique. I am a real novice when it comes to photography, but I also own a 450D, and its very inspiring to know that such a shot is possible with that camera! Great impact overall.
