[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Beatifull butterfly I thought when I saw it.
"Great colours and it´s very big".
I ran to my room and took my camera to take a picture right away.
I found it in north part of our garden.
I´m often there because I usually play football or volleyball there but this time I wanted to look for flowers my mother put in.
And I were very lucky to see this great butterfly:
Enjoy it.
Best regards Toba

Hi Toba,
beautiful vivid colour and a good side POV..you have clipped the side off a little on the left, but it's still a nice shot. Well spotted!

Hi Tobis,
this is a Red Amiral you have captured.
The POV is good but I think the composition is better with
a landscape mode, now is it very tight both infront and behind the butterfly. And maybe it's a bit too saturated too.
And it look like to have twisted.
Well done.

Beeilen Sie sich Eile. Erhalten Sie Ihre Kamera. Sie mussten schnell gehen. Ihre Augen waren scharf. Sie werden weit in Fotografie gehen. Schauen Sie wie viele Jahre Sie haben voraus an!!! Es ist gut. Toba is a fine young man with a good future!

Hi Tobias,
Red Admiral has great colours, but I agree with Gert that they look a little oversaturated. Try to see it in another monitor as sometimes one's monitor can be bad calibrated.
Anyway, this a good capture from a pov that let see both sides of wings.
Wellcome to TN!

Hallo Tobias
Du schreibst so gut Englisch dass ich mal wider mein Deutsch üben muss!
Also: guter Aufbau und Farben, prima Schärfe.
Du hättest vielleicht etwas besser gemacht hättest Du mehr von den Fluegeln gezeigt, aber sonnst sehr gute Arbeit

Hi Toba

It is a lovely butterfly. It needs a bit more space around the butterfly but it is with good focus and POV. Very nice

TFS

Hello Tobias it is a beautifull shot of the Red admiral the colours are very nice good work tfs rgds Necip.

Hello Tobias,
This is a nice specie that you captured and like Howard, I like this enthusiasm :) As it for the picture itself, I must say that I agree with Gert's notes. You should try to let a little space to make your subject breath better ;) This is a nice capture anyway. Thanks,
Claudine

Hello Toba,
Welcome to Treknature. Excellent colours you have captured, this Red Admiral looks beautiful. It's a good image, nice detail. I think the composition could be better, you missed the end of the wings and the antenna is a little close to the other side of the frame. Perhaps a horizontal format would have worked better here. A good effort though, I look forward to seeing more of your work.
Regards,
Adrian

Very good capture of a Red Admiral, Toba. We can see both sides of its wings in this picture.
The only thing that is lacking is already written about by Gert. The cropping is really very tight.
TFS and keep shooting.

Hi Tobias.
You managed to photograph a really wonderful butterfly and reflect the richness of its colours and beautifulness of the shapes. Colours of the shot are wonderful, bright and rich so as well as the light. For my taste the horizontal orientation of the shot would be better a bit if it would be possible at your case. Well done and TFS. My best regards and wishes.

Hello Tobias,
In Your Place I would throw up such frame box. Is better simple and without sophisticatings. You do beautiful photoes Macro and should rival nothing with their natural beauty. Concentrate on this, what is here most important - on main hero of this work. You see? This butterfly is superb! Splendid colours and well replete, delicate lights , and sharpness is completely sufficient.
Best regards from Poznan,
Jurek

Hi Tobias,
diesen Admiral hast Du auf einem besonders schönen Fleckchen erwischt, die Farben sind super! Ich finde es toll, dass Du jetzt auch hier zu finden bist und uns so schöne Natur-Aufnahmen zeigst. Ich war heute auch unterwegs - in Dettingen, an der Autobahn Richtung Ulm, kennst Du bestimmt. Dort ist ein Badesee und jetzt, da alle Badenden ausbleiben kann man da so schöne Libellen sehen.
Viele Grüße

Hi!
Nice picture of that Red Admiral.
But I´d like it much more (as Gert already said) if you´d have taken it in landscape mode,so it wouldn´t be so tight.The saturation is too high,so it looks unrealistic.So I made a little workshop for you......

Lieber Tobias,

Du bist noch neu bei TN und deshalb darf ich es Dir sagen: das Bild hat verschiedene Mängel, einige wurden schon erwähnt und ich füge noch etwas dazu. Immerhin ist Dir die Lichtführung gut gelungen und Du hast auf die Augen fokussiert, was bei Insekten wichtig ist. Der Rahmen wirkt ungünstig ( nach meinem persönlichen Geschmack ist ein Rahmen gar nie nötig; aber da gehen die Ansichten weit auseinander, ich weiss, ich weiss). Die Sache mit dem (nicht-einheimischen) Sommerflieder ist so: er wird häufig in Gärten gepflanzt, die Situation ist damit nicht ganz natürlich. Ich "sündige" aber selber auch und habe zum Beispiel schon Insekten in Schalen photographiert.

Ich hoffe bald mehr von Deinen Bildern zu sehen und grüsse Dich herzlich

Dieter

hi tobias, da hast du aber echt glück gehabt mit diesem
wunderschönen admiral! :-)
schmetterlinge waren bei mir dieses jahr leider eine totale fehlanzeige.
die farben sind schön kräftig und die geschlossenen flügel
finde ich gar nicht so schlimm, man muss ja auch mal die
außenseiten sehen. schade ist nur, dass du ein bisschen abgeschnitten hast.
good job & grüße aus köln, thor.

Hi Tobias!

Amazing sharpness, wonderful composition! Very very colorful... TFS!

Best regards,
Andor

Hi Tobias,

A good capture of the butterfly on the flower which is looking for food. The point of view is showing the deatils and colors of the insect. The subject is well framed. The photo is receiving a good luminosity which brings out the colors. Have a nice day.

Pierre

Hi Toba,
Magnificent shot! Really great! Excellent details. TFS.
