Nice image. I really like the blurred background and the sharp bees.   Posted: 09/10/2020 19:55:39

The contrast between the bight yellow of the flowers and the green background gives this image some impact. Photographing bees on flowers can be quite a challenge as they are constantly moving and flitting from flower to flower.
To me there are two images here, one for each flower, and I would prefer the one on the right as it gives the flower some depth.   Posted: 09/11/2020 06:37:09

Sharp and a good catch. I am not sure I agree with Jon there is a balance between the two flowers; but he is correct there is more depth on the right one. I would consider removing the smaller flower below it that is in shadow.   Posted: 09/11/2020 22:15:31

There is a nice contrast between the yellow flowers and the green blurred, background. The flowers are rather bright and I would suggest to darken them slightly.   Posted: 09/22/2020 17:01:07

I agree with Jon to keep the right flower and bee. If cropped, I would keep the background lower flower. Cropping might also put the bee in the upper left magic third spot.
If cropped, I agree with Lauren but would remove the upper blur yellow spot.   Posted: 09/22/2020 19:51:03

Nice capture, but our attention is split between the 2. I would probably use the right one as well and tone down the highlights.   Posted: 09/23/2020 09:52:20
