Some days... I was shooting some flowers at the exit of the zoo, and this little bee just zoomed in to be part of the picture. I very much liked the lighting through the petals, and casts a shadow on the lower left leaf. Editing: PSP XI, High Pass sharpen (7/50/Soft light), Colorize: Hue: 27 Sat: 124, Bright/Contrast (0/14)

Great lighting. Could use a little more contrast.

This photo does not really work. Two things that I feel are needed to improve it is the fence in the background needs to be straight and the flower should be seperated from the background it is too similar just my amateur opinion :)

Try taping a black cloth to the fence next time- it will make it look more professional. The toning would really pop with a black background. Pretty flower though.

the bee is nice because you can see the wings and the flower

Nice light but the tone really distracts for me as it all looks a little too orange and blends into the background.
