  Mini#42 Best of 2019, So Far
Entry 8 of 25
   
 
Fly on Leaf       ©2019 SteveBee
Panasonic DC-G9       8th place, 77 points
1/59s, ?, ISO 400, ?, Normal Program, Pattern, flash
 
Post-Processing: Adjustments to tone curve, exposure, clarity/contrast, saturation/vibrance, sharpness       Extra Info: I'm sure bugs aren't everyone's cup of tea, but this is one of the best macros I've been able to shoot. The fly was very small.

    I like this... unusual, the pleasing colors and composition make it work, focus is right on.

    Amberbug: Maybe you're thinking the fly's body should be dark in color, but this one was not. Histogram has no pixels outside dynamic range of sensor. DOF is absolutely shallow which is why I chose to place the body parallel to the lens focus plane. This was handheld without stacking.

    Good attempt, the flash blew out the details, sometimes hard to fix in pp, also dept of field is very limited in these macros, been there, keep trying.

    technically brilliant, great colour and sharpness, but as you say - the subject is not everyone's cup of tea!

    Excellent macro. The colour of this fly is unique unless you amended it yourself. This is really awesome.

    Fantastic detail. Who would have thought flies had hair? The colour is great, and the blurred background really focuses attention on the subject.

    Vert nicely captured. I love the focus - detail in the right places and great background bokeh. In my faves.

    Amazing clarity and detail for a small bug but I wish it was tack sharp in the eye and the wings. Still in my top picks.

    Like the color and detail. Maybe consider a tighter crop, esp. as so much of the leaf is out of focus.

    Very nice macro shot, with good bokeh.

    Great capture. Is the multifaceted eye resolved at higher magnification? This is nicely composed and in my TT's.
