Lovely image Arvind, very well seen. I like the patterns and colors you have portrayed here. A few minor adjustments may better this image further in my view - retaining the proportion of the body at top and bottom, leveled legs instead of slight and exclusion of little bit green on the right top. Also stopping down a bit would have improved the dof further. Nevertheless, a nicely crafted image. Thanks for sharing.

Oh beautiful ! How on earth did u spot this creature. Have never seen this kind of a millipede.
U've brought out the texture very well. I might go in for a slight crop on top & bottom. May be a f/16 wud've rendered the legs sharp thought out...
Just my thoughts :)

Beautifully seen image. Definitely a winner image for me. Considering the fact that you are shooting very close you could have gone for F16 or around that. Probably a slight CCW rotation on this will make it even better.
Neverthe less a fantastic visualisation here. TFS

Something different and nice. I was confused whan I saw the thumbnail. I could not figure out what it was. Yes, agree with Shivakumar, a bit of CCW roration and using a larger f number (f16 oe 22) may have been nice. The details are well shown here.

This is nice seeing Aravind. I like the way you have framed the image, however I would suggest few changes. If you get another opportunity to better this image, you can try making the image based on the laws of symmetry. Though a slight CCW rotation might get you closer it would still lack the punch. I agree with Ganesh as well about including the greens on the top. Nevertheless a fantastic attempt and great seeing here.
