These are Egyptian bees nearby National Museum.
Having some free minutes before getting in I tried to capture something. Being in a hurry that was the result.
It’s good to see that Renatik always has her camera with her (as I’ve said before on these pages – you can’t take a photo without a camera). And it’s nice to see that in an idle moment she decided to take a look around to see if there was something interesting and photogenic around – and found the bees!
I like the closeness to the flower in this photo. Renatik has got in close, this really helps to focus attention on the subject. I feel it is a bit unbalanced though, and a little cropping to remove some of the space below the flower would improve this shot a little.
I’m also wondering just a little about those bees themselves. They’re certainly busy, and unfortunately they’re a bit too busy. If only we could have got those two bees in the flower to ‘buzz off’ and leave the bee in flight to it.
The reason I say this is because they are both a bit lost in that flower, and I find it a little distracting. Imagine the photo with only the bee in flight – improves the photo, doesn’t it?
There is a solution to this using software – and we need the clone tool. Click to see a photoshop tutorial on using the clone stamp.
Hope this offers a few suggestions on how to turn a nice photo into a great photo, and thanks Renatik for the submission!
