Hi Ori,
Very interesting species, and effective photo. The dark green parts are like big caterpillars. :-) Simple yet powerful shot, symbolizing how life's raising even in the desert. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Sri,
This is again an outstanding photo from you. Colors are true, lights are sweet, and the title tells everything what the photo is about. Breathtaking "golden hour" shot! Bravo!

Hola José,
The subject's very interesting, the way how you exposed the background with several bokeh effects is simply fantastic. Probably, if you off-center the main branch to left, the composition might be more powerful, and sharpness may be increased, too, such as color saturation. A good idea, in my opinion not post-processed well enough. I made a WS to demonstrate the above.

Hi Alan,
The reflection's nice, composition's good, however, colors are pale, probably b/w might suit better to the image. Looking at the entire photo, I must say it's not bad, but lacking the "wow effect" - probably this is the reason why I, the 323rd viewer, am the first one who commented it. Just a personal opinion, obviously.

Hi Stone,
Only one photo it's impossible to identify a fungus like this (if it's possible without microscopic analysation at all). There's a bunch of young fruitbodies, they are still in progress, and without seeing the trama at the bottom there are no mycologist on Earth who can identify them even on generic level.

Ciao Luciano,
Good to see the old specimens survived the winter hybernation, and they already fly in Italy. In Ireland we still do not have any (only rain...), but I remember I haven't seen any a year ago until April (a small tortoiseshell). Good photo, colors are as nice as possible after the hybernation, and the image gaines our hope that spring and summer will arrive once... Thanks for the pic and for the feeling.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Srikumar,
I have no problem with the composition, it's pleasant to the viewer, at least to me. :-) Sometimes the main element on a composition is not the entire animal, just their head, so it's a case by case situation, where the traditional rule of thirds doesn't always work the best way. So, your compo is fine for me. What I don't like is again the white balance (you said the last time it was correct in camera, however, there's an obvious cyan overcast on this photo also) and the pose, that the animal's head, including their eyes, is not visible very well, I mean there's no clear eye contact. The reason that I give a pale green smiley doesn't mean this photo would be any bad, just - in my opinion - it's not on the very high standard we often get from you.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Good composition and sharpness, even with mysterious lights. Colors are a little bit undersaturated though. Nevertheless a nice photo.

Hi Ron,
Fantastic shot, not only the composition, but the lights are enchanting also. Color palette and contrast are awesome as well, such as sharpness (I don't find it too hard). Absolutely a photo to be proud of. Bravo.

Hi Satirtha,
That's an excellent photo, eventhough the kingfisher was positioned a little too closed to the edge of the frame. But exposure, sharpness, depth, colors all look fabulous, and yes, the bird's pose is very exciting, too, with beautiful eye contact. Great shot, congratulations!

Hi Peter,
Beautiful photo of the geyser area, not a phenomenon which is often seen on TN. Great colors, nice composition, and the little overexposion on the clouds at the top right doesn't bother me either. Nice shot. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Nelson,
The photo's very busy, lots of parts are out of focus and the big dose of pink is a little bit too aggressive to the eyes. Vertical framing would help to rid of these parts and make the composition more powerful in my opinion. Sharpness may be increased a little, too (on the bird) - but hey, the colors are excellent!

Hi Siggi,
Nice shot, great exposure, sharpness and colors. Probably the functionless blank space at the top and the right is more than IMHO the optimal, but a lovely image overall. Tfs this - but when can we expect new pics from you?

Hi Asbed,
Lovely in-flight capture, the action's perfectly frozen into the image with using the right ultrafast shutter speed, exposure is bombastic. Probably the sparrows are a little too small in the frame, I mean a bit tighter crop would IMHO be more powerful, but a very effective image this way, too. Thanks for sharing.

Beautifully composed photo, lovely view. Your white balance settings were not the most correct as there's a slight cyan overcast on the otherwise fabulous image.

Hi Luciano,
Very interesting and beautiful scene, it's fantastic to look at the pelicans and the heron within the same frame. Perfect composition and exposure, lovely natural colors. The background's a bit noisy, otherwise a fabulous image, again with humour. :-) Great shot.

Hi Silvio,
Except for one issue, this is a very good photo, excellent composition and depth, not to mention sharpness. I see most colleagues love the colors - but I have to agree with Roberto (cobra112), there's an obvious blue overcast due to the incorrect white balance settings. Except for this, an awesome capture.

Hi Jacqueline,
Interesting PoV, but the composition is not what I can fully like, the functionless blank space right (back from the butterfly) is too much and too few in front of the insect, plus the closer wing is out of focus. Colors are good though, as well as contrast.

Hi Jitti,
The butterfly's beautiful, it's so pity the crop is very tight and the subject's too closed to the edge of the frame.
