[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A fly that I shoot in the Autumn 2008. I used a ring flash with -2 Exp compensation and I shoot handheld. The magnification was maximum (1.4:1)
I'm really bored by the "warm" green color reproduction that Canon have. I want the Nikon green color reproduction !
So on processing I used a Selective Color layer adjustment and played a little bit with greens and yellows until I saw the "Nikon version".
I will put the Canon version (original) as workshop :)

Buna Anghel,

Hello Anghel,
What a perfection in this macro! Everything in this photo is so good. Sharpness, DETAILS, colours, POV, composition, BG.....
A masterpiece to me!

Hi Anghel, a stuningly perfect macro capture of a fly with superb details and sharpness.
TFS and cheers,

Hello Anghel !
Wow, this is probably the most impressive close-up on a fly I have ever seen ! Each tiny hair is clear and sharp, and I also like the vivid colors, the pose of the fly, the composition, the POV and the blurred BG. Even if I use a Canon, I must admit the "Nikon version" is better ! :-) Very well done !

Hi Anghel,

fantastic hairy fly's macro shot, great details and colours, excellent light. Very nice effective use of equipement.
