The story of this photo:
This shot was taken during a hike last spring. A bumble bee doing her job!
Take a look at my “HDR Cookbook”! It contains some more information on my techniques.
How it was post-processed in Photoshop:
> Topaz ReMask to isolate the flower and the bee (foreground)
> Topaz Detail to enhance the details and the colors in the foreground
> Topaz DeNoise for noise reduction (separately on background and foreground) [details]
> Saturation layer (greens) to tone down the background a little bit and emphasize the foreground more
> Sharpening using the high-pass filter on the foreground [details]
Any comments, feedback or criticisms is highly welcome! Thanks for viewing!
