Excellent exposure and composition. I especially like the use of the white space. Great nature image!   Posted: 07/10/2021 16:47:31

Ican't remember if it's blur of the paint on the house's foundation or our neighbors's car. Tried to get an unbusby background   Posted: 07/12/2021 23:14:28

Unbusy. Anyway, it's the neighbor's house.   Posted: 07/13/2021 00:05:32

Good color and texture. The bee adds a nice touch. Since you rotated the original image, the stem is coming in from the top on a strange angle. I might recommend you remove it.   Posted: 07/18/2021 17:01:22

Actually, not rotated. That's a stem coming off the main stem at an angle. Thanks.   Posted: 07/29/2021 10:27:39

I like that you caught the bee, its colors echoing the flower's. Nice composition, focus and D of F. I am recently interested in the value of negative space so appreciate the way your flower is heading into it. I agree with Howard re the stem, but if you remove it, I would recommend removing its shadow as well.   Posted: 07/23/2021 21:15:17

Great color and contrast. I also like the negative space as it compliments the detail.   Posted: 07/24/2021 08:36:33

Great capture and colors. The composition is very nice also. The bee looks a little bit out-of-focus or motion blur.   Posted: 07/25/2021 02:43:39

Probably should have looked at it with my glasses on as I really could not tell on the focus thanks   Posted: 07/26/2021 21:53:50
