Hello Carme

Very nice image of black berries in combination with the fly, splendid sharpness, fine details, natural colors and a nice blurring BG



Hola Carme,
A little confusing photo, at least to me, because I cannot decide as a viewer if the main compositional element is the fly or the black berry. In the first case the fly is looking out of the frame than into it, so the photo isn't the most harmonic, in the latter there's a beautiful ring of red berries with one black, which is composed very well - but in this case the fly doesn't belong to here, it's a disturbing compositional element. I'm sorry but I feel this photo is something like sitting on to the floor between two chairs. Of course, just a personal opinion, and a critique of a photo, not of your personality. I maade a WS to show the, by my opinion optimal crop for the case the main compositional element would be the fly.
Saludos, László

Hello Carme,
A eye catching image of a fly who has decided to pose on a yummy looking blackberry fruit. Wonderful macro photo exhibiting sharp detail and beautiful contrasting colors. The fly is perfectly focused and off center just a tad which makes for an attractive presentation. Great job!!

Buena foto Carme, buenos contrastes entre el negro, el rojo y la mosca con ojos rojos. Buen consejo y workshop el de Hormon Manyer, pero con tu equipo me supongo que es difícil de conseguirlo en un solo disparo, lo se por experiencia al no tener una reflex todavía. Enhorabuena por la foto. Un saludo.
