I shot this flower around my sister-in-laws yard that grows wild in her area of Oregon. She has MANY planted flowers and wildflowers on her 3 acre property in Klamath Falls, OR. The bumblebee was going in and out of most of the flowers on the stem and just would not show his face, but he was beautiful none-the-less. I cropped into the bee to focus on that part of the flower and the bee. The original photo is attached. Basic lightro

Hiu Yvonne,
Well done on capturing a bee as your subject. If it had been possible would you have been able to get in closer to the subject with your macro lens?

Would you consider tightening up further on your subject as much of your revised image is not in focus and does distract from your subject? Also would you think of darkening the green section?   Posted: 11/08/2023 16:40:43

I agree with Frank's crop, which really pops the bee on the flower.   Posted: 11/17/2023 13:46:08

Happy Thanksgiving, Yvonne!
I like the tonality captured in the purple blooms. I also agree that Frank's suggested crop enhances this image. I wish more bees would cooperate to show their face.   Posted: 11/23/2023 17:40:43
