A little patience and capturing a Bee inside a flower isn’t too hard: getting one in focus is a bit tougher. Go high ISO. Hardware: Olympus E-P1, Zuiko 4-1150mm f/4-5.6 Exposure: ISO 400, 1/1500s @ f/5.6, 150mm Post: Cropped, selective burn, selective sharpen (bee), selective blur (rear flower).
Getting moving water to blur is easy: just select a long shutter speed. Doing so without a tripod requires image stabilisation, which is what’s helped here. Hardware: Olympus EP-1, Zuiko 40-150mm f/4-5.6 Exposure: ISO100, 1/3s @ f/14, shadow white balance Post: Cropped, Reduced exposure, Increased contrast, black point, desaturated slightly, sharpened.
