Great focus, comp, contrasts, etc... I like really good snail shots, and this certainly qualifies. Most of the time I see snails they are on asphalt, or stucko. Very uninspiring backgrounds. I did catch one on a lily once. That was fun!
Beautiful. I love the composition using the diagonals of the woods grain and having the snail racing towards the bottom right. This shot really gives a sense of movement due to the blur on the DOF. Nice work and pretty snail too!
