A second trial of my new EF50mm f/1.8 lens tonight, but this time on a live test subject.
Technically, these guys are Hornets and they are making their nest under the eaves of my front porch.
Yes! There are Adobe Photoshop CS4 effects that have been applied to this photograph in order to create a more aesthetically stunning piece of art, rather than a raw photo untouched. I envy those who can create works of art au naturale
without Photoshop layers. Ahh, someday - I strive for that perfection.
Until then, I welcome constructive critique from professionals or very advanced hobbiests of photography.
PS: This is a close up lens, and you totally don't want to know how close I held that camera to the nest... especially since I'm highly allergic to bee stings.
