We've had snow on the ground for two weeks. Thanks for the escape. Very well done. Good color & contrast....w/strong focus. Possibly a good idea for S DOF challenge.

This is noce, great colours, loose the bee Or wasp?) a little...

The bud in the bottom left hand corner is a little distracting. 8

While you could have cropped a bit closer and gotten your point across, I still say "Nicely done!"

A beautiful shot!

02/02/2004 12:02:42 PM
Hehe is it realy like this where you live :D
When I look out of my window I just see snow :)
But about the photo I have this to say: Not the most beautiful flower I have seen but it is in focus and that gives you extra credit ... I would say about 6 from me

02/02/2004 11:38:21 AM
I think this is an awesome picture, and in my opinion, the best! Hope to see you finish well! Nice job!

As I sit here looking out at snow in 12F degree temperature, where in the world was this taken?!
I think there is too much background. Why not focus just on the flower and bee?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2004 04:30:54 AM
This is so beautiful... I will sure see it somewhere on the top. I like the way you managed to pull the flower out of the field. Wonderful composition and very bright, vivid colours. 10

this picture makes me wanna get naked and run around in flower fields.. vivid colors and sharp focus... i only wish the bee was facing the camera...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2004 02:34:14 AM
Lovely, vibrant colours. Sharp and clean. Nice image. Maybe the old flower to the left could have been cropped out. 8

02/02/2004 02:09:35 AM
Lovely colors and the framing is interesting. I love the directional feeling, like we're coming along right behind the bee.
