bonjour peter
un tout petit peu juste en profondeur de champs mais le reste est net.
le BG lui est bien flou et sans bruit.
bien fait

Hi Peter,
Beautiful macro. Shallowness DOF works very well; at the limit though.
Well composed partially through the above mentioned DOF but also through the yellowish colouration.
Well done...I like it!

Sooooo scharf, was ist das für ein Objektiv?
Hallo Peter, so scharf konnte ich so einen kleinen Käfer noch nie abbilden. Suuuuuper.
Man sieht jedes kleinste Detail dieses interessanten Kerls. Danke und Gruß

Hall;o Peter,
super scharfe Aufnahme ganz toll hast du die kleinsten Details ins Licht gerueckt.
Auch die Perspektive ist prima um den kleine Kerl so richtig unter die Lupe zu nehmen.
Klasse Aufnahme.

Hi Peter,
Amazing macro shot of this insect. Such clear and sharp details. Natural lighting and colours make the shot brilliant. I like your low POV to highlight its features and its gorgeous eyes. Superb BG enabling a fine contrast. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Guten Abend, Peter.
Sehr gut gewählter tiefer Blickpunkt für eine dynamische Begegnung und Bildkomposition. Sieht aus, als würde er kräftig ausschreiten, der hübsche kleine Bockkäfer. Da bewundere ich besonders die relative lange Belichtungszeit und den Verzicht auf Blitzlichtgewitter. Die feinen natürlichen Farben und die Tiefenwirkung der weich gezeichneten hinteren Partien sind das erfreuliche Ergebnis.
Mit Dank und schönen Grüßen,
Peter

Hello Peter,
Very fine capture of this Longhorn beetle from a low angle. I like the natural light, the sharpness and the colours. The soft background colour enhances the capture greatly as well. Excellent composition.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Peter

Another splendid macro work from you!
This is something we don't see everyday and it sure makes a lovey shot!
I like the usage pf the shallow DOF here that made sure all the attention is concentrated on the little insect.
Considerring the conditions, i must congratulate you on such a sharp shot! 1/30 hand held on such a close-up is indeed praise worthy!
Very good work!

Bravo and FS

salut Peter,
jolie macro réalisée avec un grand angle et avec une vitesse particulièrement basse . La couleur est harmonieuse, la teinte violacée rend vraiment bien.
