Hi Silvio,
Effective photo, perfect background blur and colors. Left wing is pin sharp, but the right was a bit too closed to the lens, so some details were lost as the focus was rather on the flower. However, looking at the entire image this mistake is not that much distracting.
Kind regards, László

Hi Srikumar,
You managed to use the few lights the best way - a very clear capture with perfect sharpness on the kudu. Composition's very strong, too - although just a little more of the water surface might take it even more effective, I think. But a fantastic piece of art this way, too. Congratulations!
Kind regards, László

Hi Srikumar,
A photo with fantastic clarity, sharpness and composition. If you can make such photos from the car, please always use that back seat. :-) Lights became fantastic from the flash support, and the whole photo simply breathtaking. 10 out of 10 without doubt.

Hi Luciano,
Very good post (photo + note) to raise awareness to the issue. And as a photo, I think it's very good, concerning the circumstances. Not overexposed, composed and cropped well (there aren't partially cropped birds, for example). Colors are a bit washed out, but overall the quality is much better than you expected, you don't need to apologize in my opinion. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Silvio,
That's another one of your gorgeous photos. Incredible clarity and perfect depth, sharpness remained perfect even on the right wing, while background is well blurred. Antennae are pin sharp as well. Fantastic playing with lights and shadows, excellent exposure on the butterfly. The yellow flower became a little overexposed, but not being the main compositional element, it's not distracting to the viewer at all. Lovely photo, congratulations!

Ciao Silvio,
Beautiful alpine species, and although the specimen looks a bit worn, a fantastic capture with excellent details / sharpness on the wings and incredible color contrast. I love your white balance and the off-centered composition, great work! Bravo!

Hi Nilson,
Interesting beetle, nice macro with great details. A tighter crop on both sides would help to concentrate on the insect even more.

Hi Luciano,
Excellent shot, with that smart flash usage which makes your photos so unique. You always manage to perfectly expose the subject and the foreground and not washing the colors out with the flash - that's not something every photographer's capable of. Very nice colors, pleasant composition, and the exposure cannot even be better... I just don't know how I missed this photo so far... hats off for you!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Pierre,
Some parts of the plumage may be a bit sharper, but nevertheless a good shot, lights, colors and the shallow depth are great each.

Hi Sri,
This is gorgeous again. Your double exposure kills! Without reading your note no one would think first this is a daytime photo. Draamatic exposure, and the whole image would be fine for a black metal album cover. :-) This is pure rock'n'roll my friend. Hats off for you!

Hi Sri,
Light-wise a bit similar as your previous photo (not only in location), but the quality is the same extreme high, such as visual impact. Fantastic photo with the golden tone of sunset, and the composition's also gorgeous - simplistic yet very effective, with eye contact as a great addition. Perfect sharpness and exposure as well. Congratulations!

Hi Silvio,
Although I don't like intrusive, out of focus objects between the main compositional element and the lens (like some grass-blades here), the perspective of this photo is so unique that no one concentrates on these distracting elements. Little more contrast and color adjustment (just a touch less green and cyan) would have been applied, but the image is so spectacular that smaller technical issues may easily be overlooked. Congratulations!
Kind regards, László

Hi Silvio,
Interesting PoV, and the textures of the wing looks similar to bark of some trees for first sight (for me at least). Very effective shot, also because the well blurred background helps us to concentrate on the butterfly only. Great work!

Hi Luciano,
I did't know the species, but compared to the photos I found on the net this poor moth really lost her colors. But you managed to photograph this female specimen very well, light management is excellent as always, and contrast between the bright moth and the rather dark background cannot even be better. I like composition, sharpness and depth also. Not only extraordinary, but at the same time good photo also. Congratulations!
Kind regards, László

Hi Luciano,
Nice shot, but the background might be darker. :-) Anyway, great sharpness on the wing, and effective shallow depth. Not your best ever shot technically, but definitely an extraordinary one as it's quite rare to photograph butterflies on this latitude in November.
