Hello Brigitte,

today in English, my web traductor for francés is locked temporary! ,-)

Good composition with the flower and insect in the foreground. Excellent management of the brightness of the right side. Excellent background, good composition nearly equilateral, very artistic and molding a suitable.

Regards & TFS!


Very pretty Moth, which you have shot with great technical skill and with an eye for compositional beauty, Brigitte. You have succeeded on both counts. Congratulations!
However, I would have chosen a black frame.
The purple frame tends to dominate the appeal of those purple flowers within the frame. Anyway, that is a very subjective opinion.

Hello brigitte,
A fine capture of a Burnet moth, her the Six-spot Burnet (Zygaena filipendulae) taken from a nice dorsal POV with good sharpness on the and well composed on the Centaurea flower.
Thanks and have a good week,

Hello Brigitte,
Beautiful photo in nice colours and good sharpness. Great OOF dark BG and composition. I agree with Ram about the dominance of the flower.

Hi Brigitte.I have not seen one this year which is unusual. You have taken this with good detail and your use of the sun has given bright colours. I also fine the frame colour a little over powering. Well done TFs.

Have done a small workshop i hope you dont mind.

Bonjour Brigitte !
Ces petites Zygènes sont vraiment magnifiques, et tu as très bien réussi à capturer celle-ci - les couleurs vives et ensoleillées sont très agréables, les détails sont réussis, la composition et le POV sont excellents. Même si je suis plutôt d'accord avec Ram quant à la couleur du cadre, cela reste une très belle image ! Félicitations !
