Thanks for the comment, Leigh. I agree it looks soft, probably because it is a more than 100% crop. Also, I agree f8 would have been a better choice here. I liked the composition because you see the eye but can't tell much about the face it belongs to. Here's another one -- same photo, but not cropped as much.
The image quality is better, but I don't like the composition as much. To see how much I cropped, here's the original, uncropped.
Hmm... maybe I need a D800 so I can crop more.

hmmm, I like the last image you posted the best. the lower left guides the eye of the viewer to the subject. The subject has interest, personality, and character. It also has a sense of place; he's in in environment. I quickly passed on the first image; this image held my attention.
Macro is not just about getting as close as possible; it's more about exploring a world we have not noticed.

Thanks for the comment, Bob. As I noted, the last image is uncropped. I found the eye so interesting, but maybe that crop does lose context, and as Leigh noted, it also compromises the quality of the image.
