Apocrita Showdown by Miguel-Santos Apocrita Showdown by Miguel-Santos

    Only one shall pass. Place your bets!

    EDIT: ADDED PRINT. Thanks for the support :)



    Ants are fun(ny).

    Using the 'rule of space', by taking advantage of blank
       background, light leading to the subjects and also by
       cropping the sides to increase the sense of a duel.
    Hope you enjoy. Feel free to comment.

    Dedicated to *MARX77 for making me
    go back to Kurosawa's classic photography.
    And to my dear film buddy ~tranquillima.
    Two great artists to visit. So go visit them. (:

Fight to the death! I think you did a good job of making this photo look dramatic and have tension. The high contrast lighting works brilliantly.

Thank you Amber. Indeed, composing the shot like this gives it a dynamic which attracted me
very much. :)

Fortunately, no ants were killed in the end. ;)
