Ladybug VI



A trip for more than five hours of roaming around in the different parks of Copenhagen gave me a lot of shots of ladybugs. They seem to be everywhere at the moment! The best of them are in this little series, I hope you will enjoy them!

I really like this photo, it seems so cozy that the ladybug sleeps or hides between the flowers of this little nettle-like plant :)

As always, please tell me what you think of this :) Further, I would really like to hear which of the photos in the series you like the most :)

The composition of the image is great. The focus on the flower on foreground is perfect for the composition. The background is slightly blurred as if there were some bokeh that are perfect for macro photos. The ladybird is quite hidden by the flower and it's a pity, but it isn't a mistake in my opinion <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>
If I were you I would have been adjusted the exposure of the pics with photoshop only to emphasize the colors and make them look more vivid: in my opinion the green is a little bit faded and I would make it brighter by a gradient level. Than maybe you can bright the red of the ladybird because complementary colors (green and red in your case) are perfect if you put them together!
The last thing: maybe if you cut the picture square with the ladybird in the centre the photo would be perfect. There is a empty space on the right of the pic and it's a little bit flat beacuase of the homogeneous green.
However the overall picture is very beautiful and well made, well done <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>
