[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a shot of a good old fashioned African Bee, falling in the worker class. You can see that this bee has been working hard, at collecting nectar.

You can read more on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bee

There is also some kind of lice or bug on the Daizy. Maybe someone can Identify it.

The picture is good and sharp. It could be little brigther.

Hello and welcome to TE. This is a very good starter, I like it as is. Good composition and good note guidelines.

I think that the brightness is ok like that. I think that it would be overexposed otherwise.

Take care, Yan

Bem vindo ao Trek Site..!!!
Boa foto para começar.

Algumas dicas:
- Coloque sua câmera em introdução...
- Visite sempre os membros para dar uma crítica principalmente nos que estão sem ou pouca, aqui existe uma espécie de retribuição entre os membros! Observando (e criticando) erros e acertos de outros membros traz muito aprendizado!
- Faça uso do workshop.
- Coloquem sempre mais de 4 linhas em NOTAS. Isso habilita dar pontos pelos membros, ou seja habilita o USEFUL!
- Aproveite o que é permitido no Site: até 800 pixels em um dos lados da foto. Até 200 Kbs no tamanho do arquivo!
- Não se costuma colocar nomes ou datas diretamente na foto. Se quiser ponha em uma moldura!
- Comentários (comments), mesmo com a caretinha alegre (2 pontos) não pontuam o membro, só crítica potua!
- Se você achar que a crítica recebida de um membro foi boa coloque um USEFUL (é só clicar) para ele.
- Leia o SOBRE (e FAQ)!
Tenho certeza que vai aproveitar sua estada no site!!

Welcome to Trek Site..!!!
Good picture to begin.

Some clues:
- Put your camera in introduction...
- Always visit the members to give a critic, here it exists a type of retribution among the members! Observing (and criticizing) mistakes and successes of other members bring a lot of learning!
- Make use of the workshop.
- Always put more than 4 lines in NOTES. That enables to give points for the members, or be enables USEFUL!
- Take advantage what is allowed in Site: until 800 pixels in one on the sides of the picture. Until 200 Kbs in the size of the file!
- Don't put names or dates directly in the picture. If you wants puts in a frame!
- Comments, even with two points, they don't punctuate the member, only critic punctuates!
- If you it think the received critic of a member was good put an USEFUL (it is only to click) for him.
- Read ABOUT (and FAQ)!
I am sure that will take advantage of your stay in the site!!
Thank you!

Baie goeie begin foto!! Hoop daar kom baie meer.

Excellent DOF, with great detail. Presentation and layout will come later, remember rule of thirds.

Well done.

Hi Johan

These sort of close-ups are amazingly difficult to get right, in my opinion, and you've done pretty well here. I would agree with waterproof that it needs to be a little brighter/more saturated.
Welcome to TN!

Hi johan,
I like your first photo. You have done well.
I little more sharpness might help bring some details of the bee out a bit more.
Nice composition.
And your DOF (depth of Field) is perfect.
Well done. I will post a WS for you with the shot sharpened.

Welcome to TN Johan,

I like to see new fellow SA members here on TN. This first photo of yours is a very difficult shot. With the whites is easy to over expose. Your composition is fine and the idea very nice. There is however a slight "yellow/green" cast in the capture. I did a WS to show you what I mean. Please tell me what you think.

Hey your bee has a tiny friend! Nice capture. From what our friends on TN say, if you increase the F-stop a little it will increase DOF. I'm working on that at this point! TFS!
