[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a lovely snail I saw in my backyard. Usually snails are considered pests, because they eat vegetation and do a lot of damage to plants, but personally I like them, as they are interesting and beautiful in their own way, and make for lovely photos.

Hi Claudia,
this is a wonderful shot, I like the vivid green and soft lines of the leaf. Sharp details and excellent POV; a wonderful composition and great job on the framing

I love snails, and this one is particularly beautiful ! Excellent sharpness and details, nice colors (I love this bright green on the leaves) and great composition. Frame is nice too. Well done !

Una macro molto bella con colori vividi. Molto ben fatta.

Hello Caludia, good shot! L love the composition and the pose of the smail is great. Good focus and lighting - very well done.

Fantastic capture Claudia,
Good detail, colours and sharpness. exposure and lighting are good. Good POV, notes and framing.

I've just mentioned to someone about only using Black or White frames. I think I made a mistake, this frame really suits this image.

Thanks for posting, enjoy the rest of the week.

Hello Claudia

You have produced a suberb photograph from something that we all take for granted and generally ignore. Focus, composition and lighting are extremely good.

Well done and thanks for sharing.
