Macro is my life pretty much so I'm always game no matter what the trends are here at LL. I for one would love to see this in B&W. The insect has little color of interest but lots of SciFi Monster details and I'm picturing H.R. Giger's artwork when I look at your image. The exposure and lighting on the compound eye looks to me to have great potential for extracting frightening detail. I would even explore cropping quite severely to turn the eye into the main subject and the legs can become more of a geometric, graphic line kind of frame. Also, because your DOF is so great (for this level of magnification) cropping would exagerate the out of focus parts and pull us more towards that super sharp eye.
My 2 cents on a very cool shot. I hope to see more!
