like your ps work
i know you never have time when taking these ( at least i don´t ) but if you do then try to get the lines maybe straiter
apart from that i like this dof is good and so are the coulers
It looks good to me, nice colors and good crop. Though I'm not sure about the focus here: While there is good sharpness on the back of the bee also the lower left corner is sharp and bright, this I feel a bit distracting. Maybe it would be an option to blur this part... Maybe a little bit more contrast and slightly less saturation, too.
Another point is the frame (yes, that's a never ending story with at least as many different opinions about as we have photographers here... :)) Even if your frame is not very big I feel the colors slightly distracting. In my experience a simple white frame can be just enough... But off course, that's just my opinion... :)
Thanks everyone for the critique!
@Ruud, I'm glad you like it.
I meant: original photo without cropping, etc. but reduced to 150Kb for fc.
@Mark, good to know the less centred bee comes over better.
@Geoff, I have to admit I had plenty of time here.
But I'm not sure which lines you mean should be straighter as the flower is made up of concentric circles?
@Martin, I have another with more blur - I'll try and upload that later. I actually liked it less. But I'd be interested to get your feedback.
Perhaps here the crop is too tight and therefore distracting?
I don't think I adjusted the saturation as such - looks same as original. But I could play around with this and contrast a bit more.
Frames: Yes, neverending story... ;-) I like experimenting with them.
It is a great shot, full of colour and the bee is superb. I dont like the Copyright logo..... Joke!. What I mean is the C, Just to the Northeast on the petals, I would remove it, It is the first thing I see!
Excellent image and all the points have been covered except you should try and shoot in .tiff or .raw if possible. Experimenting with shutter speeds could be interesting (motion blur on the wings but not the body). Cheers, Patrick
@Frank, where would you place the focus - I meant it to be on the bee?
@Robert, I see what you mean - I actually expected someone to complain about the hair/dust on the middle petal...
@Tom, do you mean my legs? The bee's legs were under her and I couldn't get that low;-)
@Pat, I have a couple of others I may upload when I'm back from my current travels.
Thanks again everyone for tips, critique and compliments.
if your legs are good enough to photograph then go for it....I meant the B's legs. I know its tough but insect shots do look a little more sureal if they have their pictur taken from different angles i.e. head on, from low angles etc. Not taking anything from your pic as it is one that will always command a good stare.
