When everything's quiet. by dragonfly-oli When everything's quiet. by dragonfly-oli
This picture has been taken on Friday, the 13th of April. Actually I do not believe in things like that, but it really happened. I could not sleep, although I went to bed at 10pm.. Finally I slept 3 hours and was horribly tired. :giggle:
It was a lucky day for my photography, because I took a picture of this ladybug :heart: I finally learn how to manage my closeup-filter!

:camera:: Nikon D5000
Lens: 50mm f/1.8 + Closeup-filter

Nice, well done technically a macro. Focus centered on the ladybug. Color - blue - originally, because I usually see a ladybug on a green background. Extremely interested in me this flash / reflection on the wing bierdonki. This may be from the lamp or the sun.
Unfortunately, this artwork is not fresh or new in its style, but it stands out from the picture ladybirds.
The only drawback (of course this is only my feeling) is a bit like cold radiating from the pictures, I feel that it is associated with that color.
To sum up the work very good technically and visually, only the color is too cool.
What do you think?

Wow, another beautiful capture of you! As I said earlier your photography vision is wonderful, five stars!

3 Stars for the originality. Ladybugs on flowers aren't original, I am very sorry. Also saw the bugs many times on forget me nots. But you gave it a touch of originality by choosing this composition and the pose of the ladybug, like it's drinking, verry funny.

Beautiful colors! I totally love them. Nice composition also. I like the depth of field but the flower and ladybug aren't 100% sharp and the background , ladybug and flower contains noise.

Breathtaking as always! :) Good job!

This is too lovely.
I love absolutely everything about this picture. There may be several photos of ladybugs on flowers, but I love how you take them. I also really like the composition. It's like the ladybug has "climbed the mountain". That's just my thought, of course. ;P
My favorite part of the photograph is the color. It's just gorgeous. :heart:

It's, okay. I mean, I dislike the hue it's giving off (baby blue) but it is a splendid shot. I mean, I think (in my opinion), you could've made it more dramatic if you set the tone & contrast a little darker. But that's me, I like dramatic colors. But overall, it's a SPLENDID work! :)

Do you use your macro filter with a macro lens?
Reply

dragonfly-oli Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
No, this picture is from 2012.
I used a 50mm lens with the closeup-filter.

I must ask you because you're from Germany and I'm in the Germany now. Today I was on the meadow (not only there but mostly) and I try to make some photos with bugs. Of course there wasn't any. So... Where the hell did you find this ladybug? :D

Lovely photo! I love it :).

:giggle: I have my special places in which they live. Ladybug tend to live in bushes, not on meadows. :aww: Maybe you could search for that. :)
