    I took this one when I was in the country. Very lucky because the fly stood there even if I was very near. Comments?

    wow, cool. I like how the map goes out of focus so that the fly is the focus of the picture, not the colors of the map.

    Great photo, but I would have liked to of seen it from a slightly different angle so you can see the side of the fly and maybe not centered. Like you said thouhg it was a fly so you had to take the picture quick. I really like it.

    I thought St. David was a no fly zone....:mrgreen:



    Great picture. I don't mind the fly being dead center. Love the color and DOF. :thumbup: :thumbup:

    no fly zone, too clever

    Have you tried to brighten up the body of the fly using a levels adjustment mask or something of the sort? Great picture the bold colors of the map make for a great background

    Very nice photo, well focused, very colourful.

    Too little info asked for to keep this in Photo Critique, though, our guidelines say you've got to be very specific about the kind of critique you want for your photo there. It'll have to move to the General Gallery.
