Just a quick Macro, I'm thinking the color isn't quite right and maybe 1 step to shallow on the aperture?

Very nice shot, plenty of good detail . I don't think the depth of field is an issue here and 1 step probably isn't going to make any appreciable difference. The main thing is the head is sharp which is where I always focus on. I think I agree with the point about the colour, it does look a tad brownish to me, they can be a bit tricky to get right. If you are using photoshop you should be able to correct this using the selective colour feature. Hope this helps. Smile

The head could be a little sharper, in fact it probably is in the original but I think the problem is that the point of focus lies slightly farther down his back.
As for the colour, I'd say that's subjective.
I'm sure that ladybirds vary in colour and although a brighter red may liven up the shot, if you think that it needs it, to me, this doesn't look incorrect.
I would however, get rid of that blue line.

Hope this helps.

Its a nice shot. The colour might be a little off, - Ive loaded two mods, both colour corrected the same way, = the second one has the sRGB colour profile, the first the Adobe RGB profile, which is how you uploaded it (convert to sRGB for the web)


If ,od 2 looks different, or better than mod1, you browser is not colour managed, and may cause problems viewing images on the web.


Chrome is the only remaining Windows browser thats not colour managed, - and only the very latest IE is colour managed.


Check you browser performance here:

I rather like what you have done here. Depth of field OK for the composition, focusing attention on the head. Colour may be slightly off, but Ladybirds come in a huge range of red so I can accept that as well - maybe expect it to be a bit more vibrant.

See flash was on - not the camera gun I assume - external or ring flash? In camera flash likely to go straight over the top when this close.
