This shot of a Peacock Butterfly was taken after a hard days driving for work. I had driven almost the length of England and stopped for a short respite. I stepped out of my car with bleary eyes to be greetd by this open winged beauty.

lovely clean image, good natural colours showing fine well defined details.

the old dilemma of whether to use dof or not i was told Each element of an image should add something to to the overall photograph. If it doesn’t you should attempt to leave it out Of course sometimes you can break this rule completely and fill your fame with so many focal points that the clutter itself becomes the point of interest in the shot. Be careful with this because getting it wrong could can really hurt a shot.

Hello Jai
Its good see that you have your camera with you when your travelling the country.
This is a fine capture of Mr Peacock...Good sharp details and natural colours....It a Pop Pop In my book!!

Mr Jai Glen,
great to hear your far and wide wanderings can produce such superb results. DOF looks spot on to me, and the details and clarity are both excellent. Cracking shot mate, very well done.

Hello Jai,
well selected depth of field and great sharpness for this interesting point of view.
Nice natural setting ans pleasant natural colours.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Jai,

I love the detailed and sharp shot shot of this beautiful peacock butterfly.
My only advice would be to the composition which , I think, would look better not so centrally placed.
I have done a little w/s.
Please tell me what you think.
(The w/s was quickly constructed, it is the effect that is important.)

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Jai! Isn't that a game old folks play in Florida?:-) No..that's shuffleboard..

Nice image sir...I am always surprised when you drop in for a short visit.....My guess is that newlyweds go to eat dinner at dads and become photographically inspired:-)
