Nicely toned & detailed Macro. Foreground leaf a bit narrow on the depth of field and not sure if a different crop would have helped this a little. Nice in any regard. ((7))

Great macro, but too centred. Try cropping a bit off the right side, and it might feel a bit more dynamic...

Nice capture...perhaps a tighter crop or having the bee uncentered (rule of thirds) would add to it.

Something about the composition here feels odd to me. Lovely colors.

this is a tough shot, and i admire your effort here. while i like the shot (and appreciate how hard it is to get these guys to face you), the composition is a bit out of balance. obviously, you've got good equipment and a nice touch; just keep shooting, and you'll get what you're after.

Nice focus and detail on the bee. Good dof. I don't care for the withered flower and the tight crop to it.

what a crystal clear shot. I like the choice of DOF and the colors are incredible. I think this shot would make a great calender picture. Keep up the good work and best of luck in 2005.

It's a shame this subject (Bee) is so centered. Have plenty of room to compose this a bit differntly... 6

Good colour and sharpness on the bee. The composition doesn`t look right, the bee is bang in the middle and there is too much negetive space. However i can`t see how you could crop this without losing the flower in the top left or without making the photo square.6

I like the idea here, the flowers provide a great context for the bee - the budd in the foreground is just a little distracting though. Really like the extent to which the background is blurred - the solid green effect works wonderfully.
