Hi Eyal

Well done on a great shot. Well composed, good POV and clarity and sharpness are spot on. :-)

Excellent shot of this beautifully pattern butterfly, the soft background really enhances the subject by bringing it out. :)

congratulaitons on a great shot. Perfect DOF and very good composition, sharpness is very good. The only improvement I could think of is the yellow background that de-emphasizes the buttefly.
Excellent work!
