Nice one! I would like to see it cropped in on "the action".

I've been trying to figure out a good way to crop this image. Any ideas?

Very nice. Yes, I want to see a tight crop too. I imagine a really up close square.

Agree. I would still like to see a third version with a tighter drama crop if the IQ is still good, showing about a third of the left and right legs.

If the photo was shot this week or last, consider adding it to the Picture of the Week thread before the end of today (Sunday).

Nice one yeatzee, the square crop works well for me. Perhaps you should print a photo book of your macro shots when you feel you have collected enough
