More bugs....

Stumbled across a few bugs to shoot. First shot here was taken after I was given advice to change/try new camera settings by a fellow member. This shot has very appealing exposure to me.


Bee in a park

I believe this is a carcass of a Red Dragon Fly nymph. Ants have taken refuge inside the hollow carcass after the dragon fly emerged. If this had been in better focus I think it would have been a great shot.

Cool one of the bee, i like that.

You say it's normal with a flash and diffuser, but it's not natural.

What? About bringing out more details?

I see your a supporting member. I should treat you with respect even when none is given.



I replied that he could get it sharper. And then I told him he could do it with two programs.

So you want me to believe that your monitor does not show a difference between the before and after image?

There is no halo. Sharpening brightens the pixels. Literally. To much sharpening creates halo's around objects. Do you see any? I don't. In fact I see a massive difference between the before and after. BUT ONLY IN TERMS OF EDITING. Everything else is his doing.

I hope I don't come across as defending myself. I only wanted to make myself clear.

But if I did not make myself clear then who would take me seriously next time.


Yes yes I know big man(avatar: Big arms), you won't ever take me seriously. - Just a little defending now. Hahaha.
I like how the sharpness brought out a bit more detail👍, but the colour is just a tad to much it doesn't look natural. Still a good effort.

Thanks Digger. Appreciate that.

My monitor definitely sees a difference, but you didn't just bring out more details, the warmth and saturation was ramped up too. If you were trying to big note yourself here, why not big note yourself by showing us your images? That's what I'd rather see, instead of trying to improve a fellows images who already clearly knows what he's doing.

Everyone has their own tastes, I personally just like things to look realistic unless it's a particular artsy look that someone is going for.

I might take you serious one day, once you stop talking the talk and start walking the walk. Wow us... 😉
