(Nice work on the "noise reduction filter" on the original image...big difference) Top notch {A+} macro capture & image rendering of the Hoverfly and flower with fine color, details, & comp. Great work, Gary...Peter

Stunning, clean detail. The comp's a bit tight as you say, but you have nicely OOF white and yellow blur creating a very nicely balanced arc in the background.
10 Sep 2010 10:21AM
Superb detail.

Quote:I am not 100% happy with this one, its a little tight in the frame

It is not too difficult to overcome this. Increase the canvas size for the side you find too tight then, with a bit of careful cloning, no one will know the difference.

PM me if you need any clarification

IMHO Gary it is quite superb & I would be more than happy with it. Iíve a feeling that you are not over enamoured with digitally manipulation, but if I were unhappy with the tightness I would just change it as suggested by loney_oryx, However I donít think it is necessary.
