I came after a few edits but it is nice to hear what others are saying, that silly Ron guy has a good eye
#1 Love it for comp! Sharpness at the eyes is great. My thoughts.........appears as if you may have pushed the saturation a bit extra here, for me it carries over onto things other than the subject that then compete with your subject a bit. Perhaps selecting just the eyes and body to make adjustments to would benefit the image??
#2 I like the shot........saturation appears a bit strong, may be a bit too much on the yellows but from a style standpoint it is refreshing and vibrant
#3 I might be being a bit nit picky but ............looking at the stick the color is not neutral as I would expect it to be. If and when you push any color overall into an image it will raise those levels of the slightest color cast even in those more neutral areas. I really like the comp, I like the BG, overall it may be a bit yellowish but a very cool shot of one of my favorite subjects!
#4 The point of focus seems on the antenna of the bug and the center middle of the cone, there is a little too much in front of that area OOF IMO. Just needed a little more DOF or perhaps point of focus on front of the cone?
#5 You risk taker you! Very pleasing, creates a nice comfy feeling. I like the warm tones/oranges of the sun/water and the slight magenta/pink cast to the seed heads. Point of focus you chose worked well here Birdie
Nits and crits and compliments as I see them
