This photo was today morning. The photo is equal to the original with exception of the reflex - i applied a filter (flood of Flaming Pear) to make the bug reflex.

I can only describe this shot as fantastic!!Superb colour,composition and reflection.Well done!

Simply a wonderful macro shot. The details and colors here are superb. There are no nits to pick from my side. Excellent.

Great macro ... perfect in all aspects. Congratulations.

Good sharp photo of the beetle - you got the right amount of bright light not to wash out the black details. Neat job on the reflexion too.

Thanks for sharing this masterpiece :-)

Wonderful macro. Your PP is really cool! The color contrast between the green and back and orange is well recorded. Composition is also very good. Congrats.

BTW, where did you get that flood of Andromeda filter?

This is a nice one! I love the reflection you created. The Flaming Pear filters are awesome. Nice work Luis :-)

Very good, the mirror in water is the best.

Adoro, está espectacular! Muito nitido e com um contraste fabuloso! Explicas-me melhor a aplicação do filtro? Queres dizer que a foto não tinha reflexo algum e tu criaste-o?

Well done

Wah !
C'est excellent, tout y est !
Je l'enregistre en souvenir.

Another great Macro, I like the green color here and again a great reflection. Nice shot!

excellant for both the real and post parts...I am really getting more and more amazed by some macro shots here and this is really very good...water especially (as I understand which did not exist) is really amazing..

Lovely shot...good DOF and magnificent composition with the reflection in the water. God, you were lucky to be in the right spot at the right moment.
P.S. Glad you liked the dandelion!

Esta tua foto está com um reflexo magnifico,os pormenores e os tons também,adorei mesmo.
Já agora sabes como adicionar fotos as favoritas?é que eu ainda não descobri como se faz,obrigado desde já,abraços.

Wow...that´s art Luis!! Lovely beatlle but really stunning pos-processing. Great colors and DOF too, getting the sharp where it was needed. Great work :)

Missed that one, but not too late to congratulate you for such a perfect macro. Very professional work. I like the antenna pointing at the "water" and it's symetric reflexion. Texture and colors are amazing.

What a fantastic idea. Must try that out. I really see extreme examples of great imagination here on TL. Thanks for sharing. On top of the idea, the actual macro without the reflection is also a masterpiece. But this way two in one makes more than the double.
