About the Image(s)

With all the lockdowns occurring I decided to find something in my own
backyards and found the Bees working on my Dahlia.
I called this image Working Bee. I used a Canon 5Div with a 90mm Tamron
Macro lens. I used Photoshop to edit the image.
Settings - F10, 1/1000s, ISO 2000 at 90mm

Beautiful bright image and the detail on the Bee is well done. I will caution everyone this image is cropped really tight and VERY small. It is only 83kb. So as you comment remember if you zoom in you will see grain. The bright yellow brings you into the image immediately and takes you right to the bee, The colors are bright and stand out.

If any of you use LR I would suggest that you export using the No larger than 1000 for size and 1024 on the long side to get the best out of your image given the size constraints. I think in the latest PSA Journal they actually have an article bout exporting for website viewing. Check it out.   Posted: 05/10/2020 12:47:09

Your colors complement each other very well. You captured the bee in great focus. I see some noise in the petals of the flower as a result of tight crop.   Posted: 05/10/2020 13:16:04

In my opinion, red is definitely a difficult color to photograph.
The bee appears to be the main subject matter, it stands out very well with the red and yellow.
Nicely done!   Posted: 05/18/2020 11:54:18

Great macro, rich colors, great sharpness where it is needed.   Posted: 05/26/2020 16:34:17
