Hello Old friend, long time no see .
I just popped in and what did I see, a amazing picture taken by a smartphone, the male of a orange tip is one of the most difficult butterflies to get in the early spring time, they always flying around, never sit until they found a female. I take my hat off. :-)
Nice sharp with natural colours, stands out nicely from the soft BG.
Well done Peter

Hi Marios,
a very fine picture of the Lapwing.
I like the low POW and the nice natural colours, even the sharpness is good.
But I'm not so sure about the composition, you need a lot more space in front of the bird for a good balance of the picture.
Nice to see a picture from Akrotiri, around the Salt lake I suppose.

Best regards
Gert

Ciao Luciano,
We have post the same species today but you didn't hesitate to disturb them in their private situation :-)Paparazzi :-)
Nice close up of the common blue pair, Good sharpness with fine details.
Even in this busy surroundings you manage to get a short nice DOF to isolate them from the BG.
Well done. old friend.

very fine picture, is crisp and clear.
You managed more than well for an in-flight shot of the hover fly, not easy, it's sharp with good details.
The whole picture is well composed with nice colours and with the nice composition it's a joy for the eye.
Fine work, old friend.

Hello Roland,
not easy to catch these flyers in the air but you managed well.
Pity about the busy surroundings, a cleaner BG had make the insect stand out better but that nature,
just to accept.
The insect is pretty sharp and the short shutter speed you get wings almost frozen.
Well done.

Hello Peter,
you captured the blue Demoiselle male very well.
The compostion are great, a classic with the diagonal.
The sharpness of the insect could be better if you used a macro-lens, not easy with a long zoom.
But the DOF is very good, the subject stand out nicely from BG.
Fine nice colours too.
Well done, my friend.

Hi Bill,
nice to see you back from your stroke.
A fine close-up shot with decent sharpness on the head and feet, the shallow DOF I think deepens of the extra lens and converter.
The colours are nice and natural and ) also like the POV and composition.
About stacking: I have done a lots of stacking last years, one of the best progz is Helicon Focus,
if you have a newer version of PS, Ps6 or PS CC , its easy to do stacking.
An example,
www.ellstrom.se/bumblebee.jpg
More than 20 image, stacked in Helicon Focus.
Pity the insect move the rear left leg during the exposures.
Well done.
