    Good capture Loz,

    Perhaps you might consider a wider aperture to keep the bee sharp and to soften and blur the petals somewhat.

    Perfect shutter speed Loz - nicely blurred wings giving a good sense of flight yet the body is nice and sharp.

    Did you use a Wimnerley Plamp to keep the flower steady and at a good angle?

    Yeah, looks like the red channel is blown out. Put a curves layer on there and pull the reds back a bit!

    Loz,

    I hope PPOK ?!?!?! I know you are a serious man. Anyway, I thought I would have a quick play and see if I could tweak your image a bit.

    First I tried some cross processing to see if I could soften the colours

    Then I thought maybe a B&W, I had to adjust the darkness of the yellows though.

    Somebody here must be related to that pasty-faced no-talent-bum that hung around with the Beatles coz my post was deleted.
