The setup for this image

The bee exhibit at the show. I shot this against mesh - close enough and wide enough, the mesh is invisible.
Step 1
Image shot through mesh, needs lots of work.
Step 2
Crop and rotate.
Step 3
Lens corrections panel. Auto perspective adjustment didn't do the trick, so I went to manual. Horizontal +15.
Step 4
Basic panel. Shadows +25, clarity +75.
Step 5
Graduated filter to bring some darkness back to the lower half. Shadows -70.
Step 6
Noise reduction: Luminance +20, detail +100. Only really noticeable at pixel level.
