very wellcome here on the side sylvain,
I hope you can learn just like I do and did here.
Your first one is a nice shot, good in pov and a lovely dof, a good colours and a very nice composition. Try to tell something about the shot in the note, what is it or something like that. Thanks for sharing,
gr. jaap

Sylvain, experts will tell you it is not a fly.
However, you have shot it well. Great DOF and clarity.

Great picture. The insect is super sharp, and the flower gives life to the composition. Perhaps cropping ever so slightly at the top would have enhanced it further ? Not sure though.
Oh, and by the way, it IS a fly, a hover-fly family syrphidae.
Great job and welcome to TN
Ah, et j'aurais pu écrire ma critique en français, à propos ;°)

Hi Sylvain
Very vivid colour. The insect is quite sharp and good used of DOF. Good job.

Hello Sylvain,
Nice photo of a beautiful insect. Colors, saturation, POV and composition are wonderful. TFS :)

I do wish that it had a more significant note about the subject posted. It is part of TN to teach others about the subject you have posted, even if its just a description of how you took the photo,and prepared it for viewing here,and where you found it, especially if you want a name for a plant or animal it helps to know some thing about its enviroment and size. Look round at some of the higher scoring people and images to see what is considered a good note.
Hope this is of use for future posts.

Hi Sylvain,
nice picture of a hoverfly you start with.
Good details and nice colours. Maybe a bit centred.
I like the shallow DOF, the subject is well seen from the OOF BG.
Well done.

Welcome to TN.

Salut Sylvain!

Très bonne prestation pour cette première image. La netteté et l'expositon sont superbes. La faible prondeur de champs agréable et met bien ton sujet en évidence.

Belle performance et Bienvenu sur TN.
