Please, click on the thumbs for larger images





I personally prefer the first two for the soft light I could manage to capture with the spot metering. No macro lens used.

Nice shots, I like them all. I would have scared the fly off before taking the third one.

i'd be hard pressed to pick a favorite, but i think it'd be either #1 or #4... #1 looks almost like it was taken by moonlight (have you considered a bluish tint to experiment with that sort of effect? might be interesting!), while i like the play of light and shadow on the last one... they're all good!

Thanks for comments.

Tcook I think that the insect (not a fly, far smaller then a fly) added something to the pic. It's the only one to have been heavily PP, I mean the color was a soft yellow and it is watercolor like there. (see below for the original).

Squirl033 what do you mean: a PP selective color or a blue filter?

Great composition. I am one of those who likes frames added tothe shots.

Also your Nikon and FZ10 photo gallery is very nice although I 'd liked to see the pics at larger size.

Narmer, I really like the lighting on the last one, too. All are very nice though. Sometimes, with little bugs like that, it might be intersting to make the bug the focal point and get as close as possible. Here is one I tried that with.

I think the point is a shift of the attention to the insect: in my case I don't think this happens, for it is small and black, whereas a bee draws the observer on itself and distracts from the flower, which becomes a secundary element.

Nice cap, Bmullen.

Here is one I took with Canon a 300

You could, when you click on each pictures in the image gallery, there is a link below it allowing you to see a larger view of it outside of flash.
