Hallo Lukas,
on your picture, you show Cynthia cardui, the Painted Lady butterfly. As also stated by Ulla, there are too many distracting elements. I tried an additional workshop different from that of Ulla, so that you can see how to improve a picture by different methods. I hope that you like the result (it is better to apply the procedures using the original picture).
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Lukas, your Admiral butterfly does look good on the lavenders. The 2 workshops show it better up closer, as they crop out the blurred flowers in the foreground. Still you have captured it nice and sharply too. TFS,

Hi Lukas, great shot of this painted lady. Excellent lighting and colours, great POV and well composed. Great work, TFS.

You've got a brilliant sharp shot of the Admiral here, but I find that the lavender in front is distracting from the subject. I've tried a workshop. Tell me what you think.
TFS, Ulla
