Hello Jitti,
A superb close capture of a Dark Blue Tiger taken from a fine POV with perfect sharpness so that all its features with the wings closed are well seen against a great neutral Bg.
Very nice to view!
Thanks and all the best,

Hello Jitti !
Such a gorgeous species of butterfly ! I love his colors and markings, both on the wings and on the body. You managed to capture excellent details, and the butterfly stands out so nicely from this grey BG. Composition, POV, pose of the butterfly are very beautiful, too. Very well done !

PS : Sorry, I just noticed when I finished writing your critique that I have no points left for today...

Hello Jitti,
What a beautiful butterfly! You made a very efficient picture of it, showing the wonderful shape and the magnificent patterns and colors of its wings. Striking beauty, indeed.
Thanks and kind regards

Hi Jiti

Great shot of this butterfly extracting salts from the ground. Excellent sharpness and details, good DOF, good POV and composition.


Hola Jitti,
primero muchas gracias por tus amables comentarios; lugo decirte que el trabajo que presentas es muy especial y de gran dificultad, que supiste resolver bien técnicamente debido a esos colores tan complicados para la cámara y además enfocando con un objetivo de una luminosidad más bien baja.
Un excelente trabajo.

Hello Jitti
what a beautiful butterfly species, his black and white body and his brown and blue wings are just amazing, the details are crisp clear sharp
pose, POV and contrast with the BG are wonderful
Have a good night

Hello Jitti,

Hi Jitti.
Simply fantastic beauty. Amazing species and terrific shot. POV is great. DOF is selected fantastically too. Details and sharpness of the butterfly image are stunning as well as reproduction of its splendid clothes. Bravo. Well done.

Hello JC,

Lovely details in the wing pattern!
DoF is accurate and the result is a fine 3D effect, and it is rare to see a butterfly sitting on anything but a plant...
Beautiful shades of blue and pin sharp details!
