    Hi Brigite, nice pictures. Have you ever tried spraying a little bit of water in order to get a fresher look?

    I might have do it using a larger aperture in order to unsharp the surrounding.

    Nice shots Brigitte. I particularly like the first and fourth images. Nice sharp captures but keep an eye on the framing so as not to crop the images unintentionally.

    Like these but agree about the close crops and wider aperture.

    Nice shots, my favs are 1 & 3. Have you done any post processing ? I feel the pics a bit soft.

    Dear Peter and Wirefox!


    Yes you are right. I stick on to crop the images not on the framing.
    Next I will pay more attention on it.
    Thanks.

    regards,

    Hi Ajith!

    I do not much post processing with the images. Only contrast, brightness, colour and sharpening.

    What do you mean you feel them a bit soft?

    regards,
    Brigitte

    Hi Brigitte,

    #1 and #4 are my favourites; nice, simple compositions with the main subject in focus and no distractions. I tried some dandellion heads recently, but #1 is much better than I did, I deleted mine.

    David has a valid point about the backgrounds being a bit sharp in some, you could reduce the impact of this with a little tighter cropping in some, and/or PP bluring in others.

    The bee and the red (penultimate) ones are probably the least sharp where it matters, they are sharp in some places, just not the best places, but it is tricky to get right, especially if the wind blows or the bee moves (as I think it has) during the exposure.

    So; a creditable series, well done,

    Hi Brigitte,
    The last two pics seems less sharp for me (soft I mean )
