Sorry! New logo/© used. This will now be on all my work apart from purchased prints etc. I've tried to make it as appealing as possible.
Don't blame me, blame the thieves that sell my work on eBay!!!.

Spotted by =l8I'm still quite passionate about the WP gallery, as that is the gallery where I started and coming across awesome work like this in the halls of wallpaper is still as exciting now as it was then. This artist has a very beautiful gallery and this is just one of the gems you'll find there. This piece is perfect for a desktop. Enjoy! ( Featured by FallenRox )

A beautiful macro shot, I must say. The set-up and lighting are greatly executed with the contrasting background. You've given the word simplicity a brand new meaning with Spotted. This shot reminds me of a spotlight on an open stage, focusing the attention on the performing character. Your use of the black/white background to the scarlet-red ladybug helps us remember how beautiful the smallest things in life can be. With only one small complaint, I do think that the falling fragments above the ladybug could have been eliminated from the photo to focus even more attention on the spotted bug. Once again, you've done a fantastic job with this photograph. This greatly deserves the attention it has been getting.
What do you think?

pretty decent wallpaper. Works well with my red laptop. Shame about the logo and the thieves. I promise I wont share it once I photoshop the logo off.

Every once in a while we are fortunate enough to experience something that breathes life into our day in a nearly inexplicable way. It could be something like holding a baby for the first time or walking away from a near fatal car accident completely unscathed. When we have the good fortune to have our lives cross paths with a moment like this it has the potential to change our outlook on life both permanently and for the better. Your piece "Spotted" worked its magic on me in this exact way. Honestly i have never in my life seen anything, let alone a still image, that captured my attention the way this shot does. I have no way to express just how much i admire what you have done except to say, you are without a doubt a truly exceptional artist. Keep that camera clicking for us. Brilliant work!!!

Hi just popped around to say sorry about the fuss re this pic, the comment i made was not about you but a comment on the judging, it was meant to be a private message to the other admins but i posted it in the wrong place, in my time as admin in the group i tried to help out with members queries re photography and gave as much feedback as possible, again sorry for bringing you into the mess

I'm sorry but I have no idea what your on about lol
Even if I had seen it, I have a very thick dA skin as I've been a Gallery Moderator for Wallpaper and for Photography as part of the CR Team so don't worry.
I've only been a member of this Group for a day and I've caused chaos already :rofl:
