Sweat Bees and a few words on post processing photographs (Two Photographs)

I used selective exposure adjustments in post processing on these bees, slightly darkening the background. The bees are what caught my eye and I used spot metering so the exposure was based on the bees. Had I used a vignette, the effect would not have been tight enough and there would have been light fall off on the edges. This technique of selecting the subject and adjusting the exposure in-camera and again for emphasis in post-processing can obviously be overdone. Subtle adjustments that reflect the focus on the subject of the photograph are a useful technique.
