Interesting!
I post processed and added the vignette, to center the eyes.

I wanted you to go to the center of the image.

Fair enough. I'm often in the minority opinion when it comes to assessing images, so I'm no stranger to disagreement! I am curious why you (or anyone else, for that matter) prefer the vignette, though! In my case, I find a strong vignette often distracts me from the rest of the image; I start to wonder too much about whether it was added or an artifact of the equipment used, if the artist intended it to be that strong, and then my mind's off in the weeds and I'm thinking more about gear and technique than the image in front of me.
For me in this case, I think the vignette gives the feel that it is wandering into a spot of nice illumination, through dark and interesting shadows...feels more like a story.

But that's definitely not vignettes in general, just how I feel about this one!

That makes perfect sense; I can definitely see that in the image now that you point it out. Thanks for the insight into your thought process, I'm always happy to learn why someone likes a particular image!

Thanks for more insight!

Iíve learned over the years that my thoughts and vision are totally different than many others. When the picture tells someone a different story, to me that makes the image more exciting to me as itís a different audience now.

I like them both. Great Shot. Maybe somewhere between because i enjoyed looking at the colors and the dark spine like line continuing on his back.
It appears you increased the orange on the Vig shot as well. The colors do pop more.
I vote the 'no vig' pic!

Final answer.
Thank You for sharing

About 1/3 to 1/2 of the vignette, to me, would be ideal.

The vignetting does focus the viewer's attention more on the locust's head, but it also seems somewhat artificial. Maybe a less pronounces / softer vignetting might work best?

Agreed with a less strong vignette but definitely keep it.

No vignetting. Darken the image just a bit though as the effect on color the vignette has is nice.

I definitely prefer with the vignette. It add depth to the image and draws the eye toward the bug.

It's overcooked for my tastes but I do prefer it with the vignette. Maybe just a bit less of it.
