By the way it's the same plant I used for the flowers challenge.

a lovely capture (what bug is that anyway?)
I've also seen your edited version (as shown thumbnail above).
Since you asked for a comparison - the edited one definately show a stronger colour and sharpness. Might wanna try the Fuji Vivia settings on your camera, and bump the in-camera sharpening a little higher, if straight-out-of-camera is what you do :)


Thanks Crayon, this is one of the many varieties of Shield Bug (also known as Stink Bugs) than can be found in Central America.

I definitely agree with you regarding the edited version, nevertheless I prefer to do the editing with Photoshop and try to use the RAW function in the camera as much as possible. I think that the image processor inside Digital Cameras is limited and that Photoshop offers a richer variety of choices to post process.
