Thank you very much for this outstanding critique.
I am very flattered. Words like these make me go on and keep trying my best. I hope I'll be able to go and take some more underwater pictures this year. Keep your fingers crossed. :D

I love how the colors of bee and petal are near complemetary, and that the BG isn't copletely black as in most macros. Also the bee's legs and the purple carpels nicely correspond. The crisp sharpness of the object and the well balanced DOF add to what I believe is not just a great macro but a great piece of photographic art. You feel as if you're watching natures secrets unveiled, something happening every day in front of your very eyes, but never to be seen. The fact that in this case the outcome resembles more than a technically advanced macro-snapshot, but atmospheric art you want to put on the wall of your living room, makes it stand out. Well done!
One little thing I'd like to point out is:
Cropping the right and bottom a little, so that the flower is centered, would add to it imho. <img src="e.deviantart.com/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" />

Thank you very much for the outstanding critique. I've been missing real and in-depth critique here on dA (and in general) for a long time now. It came to a point when I thought of not bothering to submit work any more. Thanks to you that has changed now. You've brought back a little enthusiasm on my side. Comparing me with Adams made me grow a couple of inches! :D
Again thank you for taking the time to write this critique! :hug:

"I believe that the lower right shadows should be slightly darker, and the tones of the snow on the mountain, on the right side, should be a little brighter in the midtones, and a little darker where the shadows are in that region."

Looking at it I think you might be right. So I tweaked the photo slightly in that sense. Thank you very much for the in-depth comment. :hug:
