    This seems like a relatively decent photo to me, but I don't like that the left half of the photo is blurred (on purpose? due to focusing?) and the antennae differ in sharpness quite much. Just a fellow newbie's two cents worth.
    Canon EOS 450D | EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS | EF 50mm f/1.8 II | Tamron SP AF17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II

    doing macro with a moving object can be quite challenging i guess. but it's also important to make sure the image is sharp. maybe bringing a tripod out on your next macro shooting session would help in that area. personally i feel that the image could've been sharper..

    overall, i like how the vignette creates a spotlight effect on the beetle. so yup, that's about it from my point of view.

    cheers!

    My guess is that you have rotated the image by 90 degrees.

    You probably took the picture with a relatively large aperture opening resulting in very narrow DOF.

    If you want the subject to be sharp throughout, you'll have to use aperture of F11 or F16.
