Pulchritude by petits-bonheurs Pulchritude by petits-bonheurs
Ugliest word ever. It means beauty :)

This is a bumblebee. He's (I think a he :O) absolutely gorgeous but scared the living daylights out of me!

Sorry I switched the photo; I was debating between two edits and finally chose this one :D

Hello :aww: i'm participating in #FeedbackFrenzy contest 02

I will share with you my thoughts on your picture.
I really like macro and i think that you did a amazing job there. I really like the effect in the focus area and aronf the whole picture because that green is really soft and gives presence to the flowers and the quallity.
You combined two colors that I particularly like : yellow and violent because they are two complementary colors that results good. - » [link]
The ligths are good too and i can see on that flower in the center diferents Light scales.

To improve in future works like that i think that you could play with diferents views like doing a contrast between the direction of the stem of the plant and the animal's trajectory.
i really enjoy this picture because i can feel a strong connection with nature :) continue with your work.
What do you think?

Hello, :wave: I'm here to write a critique for :iconfeedbackfrenzy: contest!

This is a lovely picture that captures the bee's quest for pollen. The colours are really nice, the violet and green work well together and the bee's yellow is the spot of colour to balance the colour range.
I think you placed the bee too central. I know sometimes it's not easy chosing the right angle, as bees are quick (and sometimes scary), maybe you could try cropping?!
The diagonal lines formed by strains make a good visual effect. Also the light touching the bee and one of the flowers creates depth. Another thing creating it, is the lovely bokeh you have in the background.

This was my opinion as an amateur photographer, please don't feel offended. Keep up the good work!
Happy Holidays! :santa:

how can you tell she's a queen? I mean she is lovely but I didn't think those girls usually travelled about that much. Bumblebees are those type of bugs that I find absolutely handsome in photos and when they are sitting still but as soon as they buzz by I flinch away.

The movement of the lavender and her big gorgeous back is superb here. FEELS LIKE SPRING!

I think I was wrong. xDD After posting it someone told me that it wasn't a queen bee but I forgot to change the description xD It was the biggest bee ever and it scared the living daylights out of me xD She's gorgeous nonetheless though :)

Thank you!!!

I love the diagonal arrangement of the flowers on this with just the main focus on the bumblebee and the chosen flower. I also learned a new word today.

Oh wow, thank you so much! :D I love getting comments, most people just fave-and-run (I'm guilty of it though :P)

I'm glad I taught you a new word too! :D

You're welcome. I always try to leave a comment when I fave. I think the positive feedback is more encouraging than the fave itself.

This will be a little biased since I looove lavender, it just always looks so pretty in photos. I'm amazed by how clear the bee is, now that's perfect timing! Personally I would up the saturation a little, it's such a summery picture, it should glow with colors.
The composition is great with the whole frame being tilted, it makes the entire picture a lot more interesting. Great job :)
