Blue Poetry
By Dennis Siluk Ed.D.

Blue was the Master, blue, blue!
Blue his eyes, were, blue his hair.
Through the blue air he came
(the whole world turned blue for him).
The flashy designs of his dress
Were neither green nor black, but blue.
Over the blue sky he went
(and even the sea turned blue then).
My life will always leave open
A narrow door, to let him in.

Hello Horia!

Culori minunate, claritate exceptionala!
Numai bine, Robert

super macro, great details

Hello Horia,
The diagonal position of the butterfly on the stick is ideal. The image is matchless in clarity and colours. Perfect BG!
Well done.

Hello Horia,
What a beauty, the butterfly and the photo as a whole. Excellent sharpness, details and very beautiful colours. The POV and composition are really perfect. Very good DOF.

Hi Horia,
A lovely capture of this beautiful common blue. Good sharp details and a lovely composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Ciao Horia, lovely little butterfly on a wonderful blurry BG, splendid natural colors, fine details and excellent sharpness, very well done my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Hello Horia,
very good sharpness picture with great details and beautiful colours

Bonjour Horia,

Great close-up. As we can see here, simplicity makes it better. Only three elements, BG, butterfly and herb. But each one is well controlled. The herb gives support to the insect and the blurred BG isolate the butterfly beautifully. Excellent focus and exposure showing great details in the insect. Splendid image and TFS.


hello Horia
super good sharpness picture with great details and beautiful colours
greeting lou

Hi Horia,

Beautiful close-up capture! Very sharp with vibrant colors. Nice background bokeh too.
TFS and have a nice night/new week!


Buna Horia,
Reactionez cu intarziere deoarece am depasit cele 20 de puncte verzi alocate si am tinut sa punctez si aceasta imgine extrem de bine realizata din toate punctele de vedere. Simplitate si finete, cu detalii excelente si focus perfect. Fundalul fara zgomot de imagine si cu un blurr nemaipomenit. Felicitari!

Buna Horia,
Fluturasii acestia albastri sunt tare fotogenici si nici al tau nu face exceptie. Detalii, culori, claritate si fundal de exceptie. Felicitari!
Numai bine,

Hello Horia,

y un equilibrio casi perfecto del conjunto. Buen manejo también de la luz.
