Hello folks,

Today i decided to present this little ladybug taking a journey on nature's highways.

I saw the grass as a perfect highway for the ladybug, traveling to a happy place, maybe a short vacation :-)

The PP work on this capture: small amount of contrast and sharpness.

I'm opened to any opinion, critiques, advices and comments.

I dedicate this capture to Mariana Scubli (TL: marianas) for her return to TL.

I wish you a nice afternoon,

Hello Scubli :)

This beautiful ladybug's splendid macro,
which it contrasts from green background perfectly.
Very showy composition...colours, light and sharpness.
I congratulate realization, it pleases me.

With best wishes.

Sharp focus and pleasing dof. The red looks striking against the green backdrop. Very well conceived and shot Scubli.

Hi Scubli,
Nice capture of probably the sweetest insect there is. The clean composition is wonderful and has an almost artlike feel to it. The shallow DOF and selective focussing is done perfectly. As for an idea to post a different composition; try a diagonal line.

Hello Scubli,

This is a great macro shot with nice composition.
Excellent sharpness and focus on the ladybug.
Excellent light, too, and lovely natural colors.
I like the green blurred background.

Warm greetings and best wishes,

This is indeed a beautiful capture, with a good composition and outstanding technical execution. I am truly impressed with the precision of your hand-held focus, which is no small feat for a macro at this aperture. Simple and appealing, with pleasant rich colors, this is a hit.

Hello Scubli,

The ladybird is indeed on a journey, like a talented tightrope walker! The focus is spot on the insect, which you have positioned perfectly in your frame.
A great dof maintains a sharp focus, the b/g being neutral and unobtrusive.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Ma simt onorata sa primesc asa o frumusete de dedicatie tocmai de la copilul meu favorit!

Probabil un crop mai strans punea in evidenta gargarita!\
POV si BG excelent!

so lovely detail

Hi Dodo,

This is a lovely macro capture from a cute 7-star Ladybug!

You achieved a great focus on this lovely colorful insect and the clarity is marvelous here. I like the contrast between the dark blurry BG and the bright red colored ladybug.
Well seen!

best greetings,

dear Scubli,
a fantastic portrait shot of lovely beautiful ladybug,
its attractive round figure on long leaf is splendid,
and its red/black colors in green circumstance is quite picturesque too,
thank you for your excellent shot,

Simplicity is the best issue of this shot.
Placement of ladybug is strong and green negative space is very pleasant.
Great shot, outstanding.

Hi Scubli,
A very nice nature composition. The color combination of green and red is perfect. Great shot.

Perfect composition with the path of the subject moving across the frame. The details are superb with perfect focus on the face of the lady bug. Great background as well. TFS
