Hello all
I'm fairly new to the photography game, exploring ways to use my hobby. 
Just looking for a what could i do better on this shot, trying to learn as much as i can.

I'm using a canon powershot sx50 hs.  Best I've got until the new year when i'll be able to upgrade into dslr. 
Not sure if i'm even capable of using this camera for stock photos.  Any ideas on that would be great.

Thank you

Composition an colors quite good, but it has a lot of artifacts and noise in the defocused background. Could be rejected here and there. A dslr will do better.

Composition: A picture of the whole insect would be better, or if it was eating something, then only the head.

DOF is shallow and the light is very flat, so textures in the face does not show.
Resolution is not so good, there is an overall lack of details.

I think you should focus on learning good composition and honing your storytelling skills with the point and shoot and wait until you have a good DSLR or mirrorless before trying stock. You will have trouble getting high quality images with a point and shoot. Other than the technical problems with this image, it could work as part of a series. Try giving yourself an assignment. Imagine you have been hired to photograph a day in the life of a bug, dog or any other item. Then spend the time and energy to capture as many images as you can of that subject doing all the things a bug, dog... does. Then look at the shots and see which work and which contribute to a story. I try to upload a series of images that tell as story. I get single downloads, but also get sales of the entire series.

You need to place your watermark higher
