[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A fly on a leaf, located on the top-left 1/3 of the frame.
I used a wide aperture to get some nice green bokeh and enough shutter speed to avoid motion blur.

I like the simplicity of an object (fly) located in an environment (leaves).

Hi Galder.
A beautiful fresh greenery all around the frame with a little visitor.
Best Wishes

Hi Galder,

This could be a potential posting if handled more precisely and avoiding reasonable amount of noise in the picture!

I understand your idea you had before this picture and I have to accept that the fly is well positioned in a natural frame as well as a great contrast is maintained between a lovely bokeh and fly itself, but still this picture lacks the quality it deserves, especially in terms of high noise observable allover the picture and the soft focus on the fly itself which is the main subject of the picture.

Please don't mind my openness as it is just my humble opinion.

Better luck next time.

Best greetings,

Nice shot Galder...you focused well on the fly and the shallow depth of field works to separate it from the background.
