Hi folks,

I have already posted this photo at Close-ups category and received a lot of comments. Someone there wanted Rodney to give his expert thoughts so I think I should re-post it here. :-)

I'm not fond of the backlighting you have here. I'd much prefer the light to hit the face of the flower. Light on the face of the flower would have also given the bees more of a presence in the scene.

The mixture of dark background elements and bright sky cause the darker elements to become distractions instead of supporting elements. If the sun had been hitting the face of the flower, it would have been hitting the face of the background elements and you would not have the contrasty distraction you have in this scene.

Thank you for sharing.
