took this today, tell me which way is better? 1. 2. 3.
I like #3 better - puts the picture into perspective. Nice shot
i think the pictures are a bit over exposed but good try =)
Fyi thats not a bumble bee, its a honey bee
Nice capture but over exposed...
For me #2 works the best.
thank you for all your input, how to i fix the overexposure? is it because i tuned the contrast level up a bit? how's this? Before After 1. 2.
you can set the exposure in the camera or fix it in PP.
i used the Manuel settings to take the capture, so i know to how to mess with that, its just with the LCD screens and a bright sun don't mix, the evf isn't any better. im guessing pp is photoshop...
i love how hes covered in pollen!
my cousin says she likes the first one better
i personally like the first one as well because it focuses on the bee more. i would actually like it better if the picture was rotated to the left..
What do you have in terms of software ?
So you have a Kodak point and shoot, What did you do to correct the exposure ? lol
Once you get that exposure nailed this will be a very nice shot, since I don't usually like looking at pictures of bugs this one actually isn't that bad. Probably because the bee looks fluffy covered in all that pollen.
When checking your exposure on the camera, don't trust your eyes. Enable the histogram (if your camera has one — what are you shooting with?) and check the graph out.
