This is a very good presented shot with good detail and DOF. The backlight works well although it has made the Ladybird a little dark. Composition is good with the centre of the flower in the bottom RHS.

One other little thing. It looks like you have a white border on the LHS but not the RHS. Has the image bled into the border on the right?

Smile I thank for attention and advice, but it was not a final variant. In the printed kind a ladybird высветлил by means of a mask, borders has cleaned. Sorry for my bad English Smile)))))))))

If it was not the final variant, why post it, asking for critique, then get huffy when you get some!? Was this really a pink sunflower? Personally, I've never seen one but that's not to say they don't exist. If it was, as I suspect, yellow, then this would provide a better background for a red ladybird (who does, yes, need lightening as you can't really go back and use a little fill-in flash). Pink and red jar when placed together like this. The border problem has already been covered. Personally, I'm not a big fan of borders, but that's just personal taste.

Very substantial message, therefore it is necessary to explain under the order.Smile
First, the pink variant has not been accepted final (final variants of color and чернобелый), but despite it is pleasant to me and consequently I have placed it here.
Second, at shooting do not to use flash (about what I regret till now).
Thirdly, there is some criticism never will prevent, therefore and has agreed her.
Thanks for the comment, you are right - pink sunflowers it does not happen.Wink

Welcome to EPZ Soldatenko and thanks for posting your shot.

I like the addition of the ladybird which gives the pic added interest. I think I would have moved it (gently) so that it rested a bit further down and more to the left. The petals lose a lot of their colour and detail as you move to the left of the pic, so there is perhaps a loss of balance between the left and the right of the pic? Moving the ladybird might help to even up the balance.

I like the green bits - adding another colour does add an extra dimension to the pic. Perhaps you could have a little more green. It does not worry me that you have changed the colour of the flower. It's always good to try different effects.

Regards

Its a nice idea, and I like youre title.

It looks better with the insect position a little differently, as I have suggested in the mod.

Smile Thanks. Your variant - very good. I had ideas to displace object in the semantic center, but loss of quality has stopped.

Thanks. Smile Green inserts too have very much liked me. I even have been a little bit surprised on how many harmoniously they combined with the given tonality of a picture.
And about " movings of a ladybird " - it is necessary to go in the summer on 500 km to the south and to photograph a new. Wink))
