Challenge: Decisions (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Olympus C-765UZ
Location: My back garden
Date: May 30, 2005
Aperture: 3.7
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/320
Galleries: Nature, Macro
Date Uploaded: May 30, 2005

Taken in my back garden, used macro mode at max zoom, with flash set to the max power to try and "stop" the wings. Not much else to say, just levels, contrast and boosted the saturation in photoshop, a small amount of USM.

I hope it doesn't get marked down too much for not being a human decision.

Challenge topic aside (I scored it an 8 anyway), this is just an incredible capture. Again, uncanny focus & DOF. The flowers are coming out of my screen... Beautiful.

EDIT: If you haven't noticed, you've given me a major case of equipment envy! ;-)

I don't feel that the image conveys instantly recognizable decision. Great pic. Really I love this pic.

Nice photo. You don't see too many with the little bee in flight. The shallow depth of field is great!

Nice bee. Sharp on the flower. DOF and shutter speed must have been hard to get. I like this. Good luck.
