I just photographed some of the ladybugs in my backyard this weekend. Funny, that I was just thinking that you might like it, and here you are posting one. It's hard to focus because they are so small. I had a tough time with it. You did well here. Very nice color and the soft BG really help bring it out.

In the Neterlands they called "Lieveheersbeestjes".
The sharpess is enough of the Ladtbug, but the ladybug are very central. I prefer another cut so that the Ladybug are left stand, he looks to the right!.
Take my advice; don't use the free version of NeatImage noise remover. It kills all the fine details in a picture. In fact, it flattens them out.
That exactly has happened to your Lady Bird picture. Details on the leaf have been obliterated.
Still, you have shot the subject from a good point of view, showing its thorax and the orangish red outer shell with black dots on it quite clearly.
Thanks for sharing the picture and keep shooting.
BTW, you have a very good camera. Many people are doing fantastic work with it.
This is a very nice image of the lovely ladybird covered in the greens that surrounds it.
Love the color contrast and the clarity of the image.
Composition is very good, but I've got the feeling that you've used a little to much noise reduction in Neat Image.
The lady bird and the leaf its on did become a little soft by that and therefore lost detail.
Nevertheless a very nice imge. TFS!!!
Have a nice day, Harry

Excellent shot of this brightly coloured Ladybird and it contrasts well with the BG green leaves. Though the focus is a bit soft (which I presume is the effect of NeatImage) the image looks superb with great lighting. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

The front end of the bug seems sharp enough, Kurtz...I still find the hind and the leaf soft...
Great try, and I'm sure you'll perfect it...

Hi Kirti, using neatimage probably you less some details of Ladybird, may be better if you apply neatimage only on BG, everywhere it's a wonderful macro with superb colors and excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hola Kirti, en la composición veo muy centrado el motivo y tambien un exceso de algun proframa para limpiar fondo. Un saludo

Very good closeup of the Ladybird with very nice colour and details in the shot!
I understand the S3 is able to mount on a adaptor to use any filters such as CPL, graduation ND, marcro len etc., this is only a sharing may be will benefit your future photographing especially on the sunrise/sunset from the S3! hope you do not mind!
