You have captured a great moment right here. Exactly the time the bee came to pollinate the flower.

However, there are two things that I personally don't like in this composition. I thing you shouldn't have centered the flower and also I don't like the noise effect. Maybe it is because of the wind but it gives a dizzy effect.

I really like the colors so great job with that!

Regards,
Daniela

Thanks for your comments Daniela.
I was actually trying to get a triangular composition of the four central flower heads. The bee landed at the time I pressed the button!
I was shooting at f1.8 to get a shallow depth of field but I agree with you: even the central part looks a bit blurred.

A rather hard hitting comment, especially when to critiques or mods were asked for. I personally think that is a rather pleasing composition which you should be complements upon. Critiques and mods comes at a later stage.

Agree with Nathan, I like it as it is, vibrant colours, nice DOF and off center is artistic. Well done for capturing bee too in such a speedy fashion. Smile
