Buna Oana

L-am vazut pe asta de ceva timp deja si pana acum n-am apucat sa te felicit pentru el :(
E o fotografie minunanta, in care imi place foarte mult pe de-o parte contrastul dintre fluture si floare iar pe de alta parte, cel cu fundalul perfect uniform.
Aceste aspecte scor foarte bine in evidenta subiectul si atrag atentia privitorului, iar daca le cuplezi cu o claritate si o expunere buna, iese o fotografie traznet.

Hi Luis

This is a fabulous capture and presentation!
Not only is this a really cool (and dangerous) animal - so rarely seen on TN in general - but to capture such a pose and with such clarity is just breathtaking! I really jealous :)
Terrific timing and balance between depth and focus here, with good attention given to the overall composition as well.
Truly wonderful work!

Hi Silvio

A very nice and interesting macro here from you, my friend!
This is a rather rarer subject and always nice to find in nature - mantids in general - and this Spallanzani's one in particular.
I like your side POV here and the good details you managed to get.
Personally, i think the noise-reduction is a bit too much, but that aside, the lights and colors are just charming.

Excellent macro here, Haraprasan, with this really tight close-up of this big spider's head.
The details are terrific and one can really enjoy and count all those 8 eyes :)
Very good control of the DOF and good light management - enough to bring out details but not too much to ruin the "spooky" mood.

This is not something i would expect to see from you, but as it happens your photographic talents exceed that of macros and you've managed a gorgeous close-up here! I won't be surprised to see some nice landscapes from you one day :)

Hi Ivan

Nice to see another great dragonfly capture from you, my friend - and especially nice to see one at a better ISO setting for you (who needs to enjoy them at full size) :))
This Trithemis annulata is a very beautiful species and looks quite similar to some of the skimmer we have here (of course a lot of differences, but still nice).
The diagonal composition work lovely here and the sharpness is just great, especially from a rather long distance away.
Very good control of the exposure, too - bringing it out of that darker BG.

Really terrific capture here, Cathrine!
Scorpions are great subjects and i really like the angle you got this one from - giving us a superb view to it's entire body and especially that pin on that tail.
Very good management of the exposure - getting maximum details form those blacks and great control of the DOF, too.
Wonderful work!

Hi Omer

A really beautiful capture of this Long-legged Buzzard just taking off.
I really like the general light here - that offers a natural saturation to the colors and adds a bit more contrast to ensure a better depth.
Very good sharp details and a nice composition - with plenty of room in the front the buzzard.

Hi Vanda

This is a superb subject and macro and a great catch from you!
I really like the interesting shape of this butterfly's wings and how well they actually blend here with the wooden texture. The focus is very good and the details are neat and sharp where they matter.
Good choice of DOF, too, to isolate your subject from the BG.
Well seen and taken.

Hey mate

Nice to see a fresh one from you and even more if it's from your last trip to Ireland.
I think you made the most of conditions here and actually managed to create a very dramatic and atmospheric seascape.
The cliffs are, though, what strike me as fantastic - both thought their shape and through the natural blend of rock and grass (great contrast and lines here by the way) - and the way you used them to compose the shot is in fact brilliant.
A truly magnificent scenery, well presented here by you.

Buna Marius

Inca un macro traznet! Cred ca ar fi cazul sa mai ies si eu dupa vre-o libelula sau un fluture...fotografiile tale au efect mobilizator :)
Imi place foarte mult intreaga claritate aici plus culorile foarte vii dar si reale pe care le-ai obtinut. Ai folosit adancimea si expunerea exact corecta pentru asa ceva, iar rezultatul vorbeste de la sine.
Nu trebuie neglijat si fundalul - care cu variatile lui de tonuri, aduce un plus imaginii.

Hi Maurizio

What an absolutely charming photo from you here!
I love this butterfly and the gorgeous iridescence it possesses and i really like it the way it's visible here. The angle of your shot is spot-on and the resulted composition works perfectly in this purpose.
The details are great, too - very neat and sharp - and the overall light and colors are delightful.
Well done in every aspect.

Hi Haraprasan

What an interesting subject you present us here!
The distinct characteristic of this species are fascinating and thanks to your nice photo, so well visible here.
The composition is also good and captures the entire length of the scorpion's tail and legs, while the DOF is spot-on and keeps everything well in focus.
Well done!

Hi Bayram

Again an incredible post from you my friend!
Even if this is an older post, people needed to see this again and it's definitely worth enjoying in every aspect.
This spider is just terrific and the pose you managed to get here is simply magnificent - the legs lifted up and the "mouth" so well visible...what a catch!!!
I also like the clarity of every single details here - with even those hairs so well visible - as well as the great natural light on the whole body.
Overall, a beautiful post.

Hi Ahmet

A truly gorgeous macro from you!
I really like the color palette in this one as well as the nice details and gorgeous BG you managed to pull out here.
The spots on the wings of this Mountain Apollo are just fantastic and gather so much attention - even from the thumbnail.
Very well exposed and composed, too.

A really great capture of this Migrant Hawker you got here!
The details are terrific and the DOF you managed is spot-on - keeping the dragonfly in such a good focus while clearing it from the BG.
The natural light worked very well, too - adding a nice, warm feel to the photo.

Hi Nagaraj

Very nice macro here from you.
The metallic reflections of this beetle are indeed amazing and make such a strong subject out of the little buddy :)
I also like the angle from where you took this - perfectly above - to make it contrast so well with the mate leaves under it - excellent idea!
Very neat and sharp, spot-on exposed and well composed, too.

Hi Mario

This is some amazing capture!
The colors are indeed stunning and i particularly like the vast palette of temperatures here - from hot reds to really nice deep blues.
Very well composed, too - taking great advantage of the reflection and especially that brighter bit on the bottom right corner.
The cormorant is a lovely addition and gives the entire shot a different feel.
As i said, wonderful work!

A truly wonderful shot here from you!
I really like the bee eaters in general as subjects and you really nailed this blue-tailed one with that interesting moth in its beak - what a lovely pose.
The overall exposure here is terrific as is the sharpness and what i also like is the gorgeous, uniform BG that makes the subject stand out so well.
