      Extra Info: This hover fly is about 5 mm long, when I see macros they
very often seem like a alien world. I guess it's because we
cannot see these details with the naked eye.

Very little processing done, just exposure adjustment and
clarity in RAW.

    The purple background may be pastel but the subject is not. It's a very sharp photo though.

    The fly provides a good color contrast to the pastel background. Well-done!

    Wonderful detail on the hover fly, and your "candy land " title is right on. Love the beautiful pastel colour of the flower.

    Since the fly is the focus of the photo I would expect it should be in pastel like the background. Amazing macro, perfect detail in the fly, an alien world as you say.

    Beautifully focused. The wings have a pretty iridescence.

    You're subject comprises rich bright colours-it doesn't say pastels to me. Good macro of the bee with good focus and a touch of pastel colour in the background.

    Beautiful macro. Pastels are clearly in the image but focal point colors are a bit bright.

    Very nice! Lovely details and colors. I'm sure this would do well but others might argue that the yellow is not pastel enough but for me the color of the flower makes this very much in theme.

    Super detail and sharpness of the subject, contrasted with the subtle bokeh pastel background. A favorite.

    Very well shot, and the background flower is indeed pastel, but the non-pastel fly grabs the viewer's attention. Also jumble of twigs (or whatever they are) competes with the flower pattern to make the overall design rather confused.

    Stunning! Love the sharpness and the fact the pastel petals form the entire background.

    Fabulous shot, subject is not pastel, but background is. Focus is spot on.
