It has been cold here and while that is fine since it is winter, I do find myself looking forward to warmer weather and longer sunlit days. A few days ago I was looking back through some photos from the spring and I found one I hadn’t yet edited.
I have a series of pictures of this bee and I have been trying to edit them in different ways. Here is one edited version:
This version I edited in Aperture. I cropped it, put it in a sepia tone, and sharpened it. I like this version, not really sure if I love it. I think this photo shows one of the downsides to not having a macro lens. With a macro lens, this picture would be sharper, even before editing. My kit lens did a decent job though. I think the 50mm lens I have wouldn’t have worked because I was having trouble getting any closer to the bee.
So, what do you think? do you like sepia for this particular subject matter? Your comments are welcome in the comments section.
