October 2019 - European Honey Bee

About the Image(s)

This, like many of my recent images, was taken with Sony 6300 with an adapted Canon 100 mm macro lens. It was lighted with two opposed lights positioned outside a tent fitted with a black background matt. Seventy images taken on WeMacro rail were combined in Helicon Focus. Processing in PS included removal of supporting pin, and some artifacts of dirt. Sharpening and some vibrancy was added.

Hi Neal: Think I have mentioned before you have this focus stacking down to a science, as your technical aspects are pretty well spot on. The light gold border against the blue-purple background is a fine color compliment for the bee.
If I had a nit it would be the darker blue halo around the wing at the top of the frame, this would be easy to fix.
Good Work.   Posted: 10/09/2019 00:01:51

Hi Neal, your getting quit proficient at this. Great clarity and focus. The only problem I see is the blue halo on the upper wing as Murphy pointed out. Good work.   Posted: 10/10/2019 07:13:51
