Yes, I do at times take a photo with a human in it :)

This was taken at the spring festival at Marshy Point Nature Center. The gentleman is a master bee keeper and is explaining his work to this attentive lady. I also learned a bit about bees, a very interesting man. His wife sold some of their honey at the festival, and it was delicious.

I didn’t do much pp on this, a little contrast and sharpening.

Thank you for viewing.

Hello Werner,

Un métier intéressant qui demande beaucoup d'attention.
C'est une image très goûteuse en effet.

Attention à l'oreille de la dame, aïe la lame de couteau est bien proche! :lol:
Beau portrait, gentil cliché.
Amitiés. Yolande

Ahhh, Werner, you certainly cover the gamut of photographic possibilies, and even include people in your gallery once in a while! Trying not to sound ignorant, but where is "Marshy Point Nature Center". If it's within my touring distance I'd love to stop by there for an hour or two.

Thanks, JoeGoff

Hello Werner,

A difficult shot because of all the activity; where do you focus! Your title tells us its about 'bee-keeping' so you were right to focus on the bees rather than the keeper.
A lovely composition where each element of the shot leads us from the f/g into the b/g, providing interesting details as we progress.
A nice touch that the bee-comb is at right angles to the other action and would, if not obscurred by the lady, create a strong f/g triangle.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hola Werner

Hello Werner,
A nice and well balanced framing covering both well as the bee master plus the bees were the main subject so they are well focused with nice sharpness and beautiful details,the lighting condition is well managed and exposure is accurate,well captured with nice contrast colors,a beautiful and different one with good details of skin tone with nice sharpness.

Best Wishes

Hi Werner,
Well balanced and interesting composition, the DoF in this shot is great keeping the bees and keeper in focus and observer and background out of focus. Nice colours and overall interesting shot. It is nice to see that you do include primates in your work....Best wishes

Bom dia Werner,
I do not know if you noticed that the Bees Keeper looks like Nicolas Amherd the nicou :o).
I thought that he was the guardian.
Great catch, hard to do, as say Bev. Excellent POV/DOF, sharpness and light.
