Long-Horned Wood Borer on a big window. My flash thought I wanted the wall on the other side of the window illuminated, not the beetle 4 inches away. I almost deleted it, but after looking at it a bit, I kinda like it. Easy to see it's a double glazed window.

Hi Terry, thanks for sharing. It does have a nice sort of abstract conceptual feel to it and I think you were wise not to delete it. Sometimes unplanned shots can have pleasing results.

I see some visual possibilities here. You may want to consider a b/w conversion after trying to burn in the center of the body for a little more detail if possible. And if you do a conversion do your best to retain the subtle grays of the "repeating legs." Pump up the color saturation a little bit and then using some adjustment exposure layers you can enhance the various gray tones; just a thought ;-)a

Sapearl, thanks for the compliment and the advice. Although I have to admit my ignorance. I'm a rank amateur, and not sure what all that means. I did transfer the photo to my iPhone, and played with the color there. I think it looked best in the "noir" setting, whatever that means. It made the background black.

I like it, reminds me of an underexposed film shot.
