Hello Karthik,
Nice photo of this butterfly in a splendid environment with the wet leaves. Excellent sharpness and details. Good DOF and composition.

Hello Karthik, Seem to me that this is a shot after raining. The leaves are clean and fresh. The sun light is not so harsh. The butterfly stands out nicely from the blurred background. JC

Hello Karthik,
Your Dark Blue Tiger has some very attractive markings while the colors are vivid and beautiful. Exceptional focus showing excellent detail, and I see you even managed to capture some attractive water droplets. Love the vertical framing and good exposure. Great job!!

Very attractive presentation of this pretty butterfly, Karthik.
You did well in retaining the dew soaked leaf within the frame since it not only adds to the compositional appeal but also shows the ambient conditions at the time of taking this picture.
Well done!

There are pictures where art beyond the simple technique and can not do a review without resorting to poetry. Congratulations, Karthik!
