Great capture--your clarity is terrific, and I love the contrast, composition and color combination. The only suggestion I have is to TRY a crop that eliminates about 1/8th of the left side (it is blank space and out of focus anyway), to see if that improves the emphasis on your wonderful flower and bee. You did a fantastic job!   Posted: 01/10/2021 15:52:33

Hi Nilan
Your subject is sharp and well exposed. Colors are perfect. The color of this bee is unique. I agree with Carol you could try to crop out a little of the left side. Good job.   Posted: 01/12/2021 17:42:32

Wonderful capture, with great detail where it's needed. I do agree that you have included too much of the soft-focus area, which does not add to the composition. Looking closer, I also see a fair amount of noise in the smooth areas.

I passed your image through Topaz Denoise AI, did a serious crop from the left and bottom, added a hint of clarity, and finished with some targeted dodging and burning. Thoughts?   Posted: 01/16/2021 14:07:35
