I took more hockey photos last night, but I decided to upload a bug photo. I know it sucks, but I just had to go out a take a bug photo after viewing all these bug photos. I even tested out a lens doing it. Don't worry, no bugs were killed in the making of this photo. I didn't even prevent the flower from blowing around while trying to hold the lens still on that small bug.

Id like to get some feedback on this image. I decided to step out of my norm(studio work) and try some landscapes...
I was going to attempt an HDR but it didnt turn out, so took one of the images and did alot of enhancements and photoshop to it.
Is it over done? Too saturated? Does it look "fake"?
Any and all comments are appreciated!

Jason to me there is a lack of most of it being sharp.
Too dreamy looking for a lanscape, seem to have sharpness
close but not very far into frame. Was it windy?
Composition is great, reflections and colors are awesome
TNB is that the 105 macro you are using?
I like the scale of bug to flower, very nice!

The area of disturbed water in the distance is wrong for me it's sort of a blotch in the middle if the photo.

It is missing something and I think it is different colours.

Every year the sandhill cranes gather in our area for their annual migration south. Here they are meeting up for lunch in a soybean field. The farmers don't really like them, but the people do.
Also, it's a copy of Rooz's method of framing. I thought it worked for this shot.
