really a good one. i donot know about your choice but, as you have invited critique, i must say that the lower part of the flower is out of frame it could have been better if you had included it to complete the show with the fly and the flower.Or it could have been better if you had cropped slightly as the flower has a distractive effect on the subject so that the title matches very well.I am posting a modification.
lastly i must say that please you donot mind for the above comment you may just avoid it if you donot like it.
Many thanks for taking the time to comment
I like the fact that you have a good depth of field for the picture to show all of the fly and most of flower in focus.
posting shot settings could also help with a critique.
I agree with Somnathchatterjee that some of the photo needed to be cropped, I uploaded a mod that moved the fly away from centre and allows room for the fly to move into the picture.
Once again,many thanks for help and advice, much appreciated.
Hello, Nick. This is very good. Your colour balance looks ok to me, as does your focus, dof and exposure, and the centre of the flower is very detailed. I might just try to deepen the background a little more with shadows/highlights or just slight contrast, and a crop, as has been mentioned., Remember to leave space for the hoverfly to fly/move into. For that reason, I would have lifted the camera a little so that there was more background at the top of the frame and less flower at the bottom. I can see that you probably wanted to include most of the flower as well as the hoverfly, and this looks fine, why shouldn't we have two good elements in the image? But if your subject is the hoverfly, then the flower distracts a bit, so the crop will help there.
thanks Pamela,your thoughts are very much appreciated
