Hi Sri,
Sometimes there are things we can't change, like that small shadow of a branch here. However, although it's a little disturbing, doesn't destruct the image. Lights are wonderful and colors are fabulous, sharpness is ok, meanwhile the composition's eye-pleasing. Good shot overall, I like it.

Hi Luciano,
Great exposure control and composition, but the butterfly, especially the left wings, could be a little sharper. Otherwise a fabulous photo in your unmistakable style.

Ciao Luciano,
Beautiful exposure control and depth, and what I especially like, fantastic tones and textures of the leaf (and the moth, obviously). A stunner again. Bravo.

Hi Nelson,
Unlike Srikumar, I don't find all the man-made articles destructing on a nature photo if they aren't dominant. Very interesting composition with the bird placed closed to the left edge and the out of focus tail bends through the entire image. Extraordinary composition, especially with this background with the diagonal lines. Gorgeous image, congratulations!

Hi Alexei,
Unlike aruntp, I don't find the PoV odd. Actually I have a doubt if a better one for a mating couple should have been chosen at all. Exposure, sharpness and depth are also perfect. Thanks for posting this great photo, and I hope some more will come later.

Ciao Silvio,
Nice composition, but instead of the insect the focus should have been on the grassblade below the butterfly, because the out of focus grass is destructing the otherwise good image a bit. Just a personal opinion, obviously.

Hi George,
It was long time ago you posted a photo or a comment here, but I hope you'll return once. This is a breathtaking coastal image, composition's excellent, the exposure's awesome - but for me the pink-ish clouds seem a little strange. Probably it was the original color tone, in this case please excuse me. Anyway, a spectacular coastal image which is not at all easy to shoot.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Marius,
An old, but very nice image, with beautiful sharpness / textures. Excellent pose, and the eye contact is also something worth praising. Clear, absolutely noise-free background - this photo is a stunner! Bravo!

Hi Satirtha,
Very nice photo, I like it. Acceptable sharpness, great lights and background blur. In my opinion some certain things might be changed (I did in the WS): composition may be more effective with less negative space and the white balance's too much in the red direction. These may even help to improve the otherwise lovely base image.

Hi Miro,
Fantastic shot, and not only from the photographic point of view. The scientific is even more important. This species is native mostly in Western Asia and is very rare in Europe - for example in my home country, Hungary, there's only one record and the first one from Serbia was reported in 2011 also (http://www.phegea.org/Phegea/2012/Phegea40-1b_37-38.pdf). Nice composition, colors, sharpness and depth, very spectacular! Huge congratulations.

Hi Peter,
Although you disappeared from TH for 2017, I still remember your work and continue commenting your beautiful photos. This portrait is simplistic yet spectacular, with special facial expression reminding me to an old man. :-) Nice details, but maybe a little oversharpened?

Hi Ron,
Interesting and spectacular scenario, and although the camera angle wasn't the best ever, this queue of fungi (Lentinus tigrinus maybe, according to the habitat, colors and cap textures) and 2 frog species is breathtaking. Perfect depth, colors and especially atmosphere, I really feel myself there in the swamp, facing the frogs who were confused by the aim of love. :-) Great shot which tells a story, absolutely gorgeous! Bravo!

Hi Lou,
Beautiful macro, nice details on the spider and also on the petals. Perfect color contrast as well. Probably a tighter crop might help the viewer to concentrate more on the conspicuous spider, but a good shot overall, congratulations!

Hi Luciano,
Although the poor butterfly just came from a war with a bird, what (s)he almost lost, this is a fantastic photo with beautiful details, colors and lights. Exposure balance is awesome as always on your pics, really good DoF, and gorgeous sharpness. Also congratulations for posting a first time species on TN, absolutely valuable image! Bravo!

Hi Silvio,
Beautifully composed photo, excellent sunny colors and perfect sharpness. I love your depth of field and the focus also - the butterfly's tack sharp, but everything else is blurred a little, helping the viewer to concentrate on to the subject only. Absolutely gorgeous image, bravo!

Beautiful image with perfect sharpness and composition. Colours are good in my opinion, it's very hard to find the best balance in the shady forest. Congrats for the lovely photo.

Hi Asbed,
If you don't directly mention there's an insect on the frog's left leg, I hardly believe anyone would notice it. Good shot, nice colors and textures on the frog, beautiful exposure control even with one hand. Congrats for the image and my condolences for the loss of your dog.

Hi Satirtha,
Bombastic image with incredibly harmonic composition. All the technical details are brilliant as well, but the composition itself is what immediately caught me, even in the thumbnail view. Very pleasant image to look at, with informative note. The photo of the day for me. Hats off for you!

Hi Luciano,
I see the butterfly season is already very strong in Italy (little bit weak in Ireland yet) and you again managed to shoot a top class photo with perfect lights. The exposure control, as always, is brilliant, and your flash usage is so unique that it's able to generate awesome, even mysterious lights. Standing ovation for this pic! Bravo!
