Quan, the flower is simply stunning. If it were mine though I would clone out the insect. The lovely flower with the water drops is enough interest. The insect I think distracts from the flower . . . just my two pence worth.

i think i agree, Suze... the bee isn't so much a distraction for me as it is simply superfluous... the flower and water drops alone make for a marvelous shot!

I agree with suze and squirl033 about the Bee,withmy added thought that it is too small to offer anything to the photo. Hope you don't mind Quan, here it is Beeless.

I disagree with the others. It's a gorgeous flower--wonderful shade of pink--and your technique is excellent, but I think the bee makes it more interesting. I take a lot of flower shots, and alwaystry to includesome "natural action," usually in the form of an insect at work. Nice capture!

Hello everyone,

Thanks a lot for your viewing and comments.

Stevekin, your Photoshop skill is incredible. I wish I could know PS a bit but nothing at the moment.

Rgds,

Quan

I don't mind the bee as much as the flys. Personal stuff again. Lovely flower with very nice detail.
