Well since the bee isn’t in focus that well, lets make this photo a bit more interesting with some Photoshop action…
Stole the corner of the shot and copied it to the other side for a more simple background
Masked the flower back in a bit
Made a copy of the left side of the flower, and since I want it to look like it is exploding, I made it bigger.
I then used a splatter brush to mask in the splatters on that layer
Then I added the layer on top
and added a vignette.
This isn’t that great, but for some reason it’s one of my top ten photos on Flickr…
As they say, theres no accounting for taste.
