Yes, like Tom says. Push the envelope.

I read this forum frequently, but do not post.
The vast majority of shots are insects, and frankly, just do not appeal to me despite the amazing quality of work I see here. Sorry, but insects creep me out!. This leaves me with no room to leave comments. I'd feel like a jerk for posting my floral work, but never really leaving comments for others.
I guess that maybe a bit more diversity in subject matter would be a move in the right direction.
However, we like what we like, and you can't knock that!
I only WISH I had the skill to match that of the regulars here!

Now that's a cop out. If you are interested in getting good at macro, and you have said as much, then you need to practise and posting will spur you on. Posting also helps you to see your work more objectively so it becomes easier to improve. I have always found the greatest hurdle to improvement was keeping it to myself. Something to consider.

It maybe the quality of what is shown,in a good way. A friend of mine recommended me to this forum as I enjoy macro. As I dig into it I realize that I am pretty bad at it. The stuff that is posted is pretty amazing. Therefore, I will continue to check it out, but I doubt that I will be posting anything. This work is pretty inspiring and humiliating at the same time.

Rain will do it, but it's also a good time to find them sheltering and disinclined to move ...

Why not, you can only get better.
