Hello Ron,
Beautiful coloured butterfly. Well captured if we talk on its details as well as its exposure. BG is also good but just that plant; just touching the wing. You could easily cloned it out. One more thing....don't know why you sharpened only edges of the leaves! It's clearly evident.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Robert,
Beautiful bird; haven't seen before I think. I like such total OOF BG. Even such unfriendly location you captured it well. Nice exposure. Easily you could cloned out a few unwanted branches here, IMHO.

Beautiful coloured Moth. Well captured. Details are good too. Vertical frame could have been more attractive.

Hello Luis,
Beautiful coloured Red-winged Blackbird. Very well captured. Excellent focus on its eye. Good details and sharpness too.
I have captured so many birds against such gloomy whitish BG which I don't like. But I know here we are helpless.

Hello Luciano,
Beautiful moment. Giraffe is always beautiful to capture. Quite well framed if we compare BG with foreground. Colour looks good and natural. But light looks bit flat to me and those two half Giraffes......not perfect cropping or not perfect timing to click. Like giant tree in the BG but sharpness of the lower part of the Giraffes could have been better; as well as you could easily highlighted shadow area of the Giraffe's neck and belly (to get rid of DARK LIGHT; in your word) a bit IMHO.
I can remembere your comment on my Giraffe picture "an easy picture...." but here it doesn't look very easy to you ;-)
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,
Srikumar
