Ciao Luciano,
Very nice ...
Excellent color and detail.Cross-frame, good.

Ciao Luciano,

Bella farfalla, molto colorato e immerso in una luce meravigliosa. Mi piace il concetto di immagine, con il POV di cui sopra, è ideale per mostrare i dettagli della insetti. Lo sfondo è complesso e un buon livello di messa a fuoco, caratteristiche molto piacevole aggiunta alla foto.

Ciao Luciano, bel taglio diagonale, bella arancione, poi dici che dalle tue parti non ci sono, macro di gran qualità per colori, dettagli e nitideza, bravo, ciao Silvio

Ciao Luciano,
queste piccole farfalle le riesci ad incorniciare sempre nel migliore dei modi, ed anche se è solo una foto ce ne fai apprezzare sempre al meglio le qualità sia per colori che per dettagli come vederle dal vivo. Ottimo lavoro e grazie per le critiche ai miei scatti sempre molto costruttive.

My dear friend Luciano,
An expert job again from you.. Excellent macro capture of this Marbled fritillary.
Details, composition and your POV are great.
Kind regards,

Hola Luciano,
bonitos colores y gran foco,
original encuadre.
con hermosa iluminación.

Ciao Luciano,
una splendida immagine di una splendida farfalla, che non ha nulla da invidiare alle sue cugine più grandi Adippe Aglaia e Niobe e alla sorella Ino, ma per tua sfortuna forse in quel di Cuggiono vola solo lei fra quelle "nominate", comunque sia ne hai fatto una magnifica composizione curata in ogni dettaglio, ottima sotto ogni aspetto.
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio
