A bee collecting pollen in a iceberg rose. His little sacks are ever so full that I wonder if he will have lift-off.

A nice shot Averil. Good exposure on the darker Bee in the middle of a white flower, and both light and dark are exposed well.

I like the long shadows on the left of the stamens(?).

The composition is central, which works for the flower as a specimen shot, and with the bee, an off centre composition may look better, so Ive uploaded both.

Ive lifted a little more detail on the bee, and in mod2, Ive enhanced those nice shadows.


Good work,


regards


Willie

Thanks again Willie. I do like your mods and will never get that advanced with my little Photo Studio 5.5 but it really makes me play around more than I did before.

Decent image. Bee does need to be more distinct. It is a little lost.
