    Thank you for all the comments. I couldn't come up with any clever ideas for the challenge so I just scrounged through everything I had shot after the challenge announce date and came up with anything that matched a phobia.

    I like the composition using the diagonal. I would have liked to have seen more of the bug in focus. In my favs anyway.

    Certainly a recognizable fear - Beautifully composed with the diagonal treatment, and the DOF enhancing the important bits

    Impressive macro shot of the phobia's trigger, but the nice color deflects me from any suggestion of fear.

    As with the previous Pteronarcophobia picture, looking at flies up close makes me hate them that much more. To bad the entire fly wasn't sharp.

    I understand your not going to have much depth of field with stacked conversion lenses, so you have to compose around that somehow. If shot from directly above you could have gotten both head and wings in the same focal plane. Another option would be a head-on view of the face.
