Bees at work

By paulcr
This is me playing around with borders and text, something I do very little of. But seeing how the presentation on so many shots here makes a big difference to the overall look of the image, I've decided to experiment. This shot was taken last Summer at a winery in Greece. I was totally surrounded by thousands of bees, all amassing around the crates of grapes. They apparently never (or rarely) sting.

Clever colours in the border for the image content. I dislike borders in 99% of cases. Lucky for you I like the image itself Smile

Well I do indeed feel lucky Malcolm, lol. I took the border colour from the grapes using the eyedropper. Cheers. Paul

Hi Paul,
border works really well on this, lovely presentation.
Re question on my Macro lens it was about 397 brought from the ephotozine shop - warehouse express - I am so pleased with the quality of this lens, I would strongly reccomend this - it is like another world what you see through this lens - you will see things through the lens that you cannot see with the naked eye, amazing. If you can, go for it.
Best wishes, Sue

Thanks for that Sue. Sigh 397, thats about 600. Hmm, I think I'll ask Santa. I know what you mean about a whole different world though. I used to have a microscope when I was a kid and spent hours gazing at the world through it. thats why I'd love a macro. Paul

Excellent attempt at macro work. border and line colour is great. Paul you could also consider the Sigma 50 macro, think it goes for under 200USD if I am not mistaken.

Nice close-up shot at the grape harvest with all those bees milling on top of the grapes. Great color and detail.

Thanks to Tommie, Antonio and Su. Su I'll have a look around and maybe get a 2nd hand one. Or maybe some close up rings that attach to the lens. Paul
