A very nice triptych, but dare I suggest that it could possibly be improved? It looks a little visually unbalanced to me. I think the red beetle should be in the centre, with one of the other images flipped. Then you'd have to decide whether to have the outer frames leaning outwards or inwards. This would also place the darkest green in the middle, with the two areas of lighter green at the sides.

Edited to add: I should have prefaced my suggestions by saying that your photography is superb. My comments are on the presentation only!

Many thanks for the Critique, appreciated, i like the idea, but was trying to keep the order it climbed the stem,and never even thought to maybe swap the images.
Something to think on.

Kind regards Peter
Glad you like my work

I think the idea is a good one but it doesn't quite work for me. My first criticism is the size; I think thumbnails should never be used when you can post the full (or fuller) size as the viewer loses the opportunity to see interesting detail - I always post the biggest a forum will allow giving account most monitors handle 1200 on the long side these days and it's a good size for me to view - with reading glasses.

Question; what are you getting yourself prepared for? If you don't mind me asking.

Very observant and I would say helpful critique from Alex. It's not always the original chronology or sequence that makes the best visual presentation.
