My Return to TN
Hello Ricardo, good to see you back here. We wondered where you had gone to. It's a good picture, nice composition and details. My only nit is that it is a little underexposed. Very well done and welcome back.
*I've turned off my points, I cannot recieve and I cannot give. I'm sorry for the latter*

Hello Richardo, excllent posting for your return, excllent details, Bg, POv DOF Perfect work, and welcome back, TFS Kyle
Its great to see you back on TN Ricardo. You were critical in me taking up photography again and sharing my journey. For that I thank you very much.
I hope you have been wel and look forward to many more contributions from you.
Apart from being a little under-exposed, this is a fine shot. Great POV and sharpness.
Ricardo friend your back,
I am imressed to see you back. We had missed you a lot, we had missed your imput and your critiques, you started with a fine one. the composition is perfect, I think when you used a highlight tool to shot would better, very good job.
this great to see a post from you again, welcome back, you have been missed.
As mention, is a bit UE but vey nice POV and composition.
Good details and nice POV. Abd a great note as usual.
Very well done, my friend.
Long time! It's great pleasure to see you and your work again!
As others wrote - slightly too dark, but very well composed. POV is great, same as details. Nice green-dark mood and interesting note. Good work!

Excellent shot, under the conditions you describe, and no fill flash. A different look with the low key exposure, I like it. Very good POV, framing, and nice detail.
Well done..and Thank You!
Its great to see you back!!
A nice capture it is too.
I like the low light,its creates a nice moody feel.
Good rich colours and a great POV.
A big welcome back, Holy Cow, you had everyone wondering your where abouts.
Beautiful capture and well done on the composition and details.
Hello Ricardo! I have often wondered what ever happened to you but like Lazarus you have risen and I am glad to see you back. Very nice capture you start with, great details and effective DOF across the wings. Composition is very pleasing also. I would increase the levels on this one to brighten it up a little. Well done.

¡Un punto de vista impresionante! El color oscuro acetúa la magestuosidad de la pose. Detalles, color y composición magníficos. Buenas notas de detalles prácticos útiles.
Un saludo, José M.

Good colours and lighting. DOF is spot on and the POV is good.
Well composed and nicely framed.
Thanks for posting, have a great week
Que bueno que estas volviendo, mi amigo! Dos anos estan mucho, ma el tiempo vuelan! De toda manera, in 2005 hay visitado tu linda pais, veramente una tierra encantada, especialmente el Sul, la Patagonia y la Tierra del Fuego. Me gustaban mucho los lugares da este parte del mundo, tambien las parillas portenas (a Recoletta) y los vinos mendocitos.
Welcome back, my friend!
Ohh, yes, great pose of the butterfly of course! :)

veo que has retornado con las fotos, y esta es muy buena en detalles y acercamiento, el foco tambien es de destacar, con buena profundidad de campo. Lo único que para mi gusto está oscura, pero el artista sos vos, es solo mi opinión.

Ricardo, que bom que você está de volta! Não tenho tido de postar, mas foi ótimo ver você novamente aqui no TN.
Espero ver ainda muitas fotos suas. Tenha certeza de que você foi uma das pessoas que me incentivaram a querer fotografar a natureza.
Um forte abraço.

Excellent "without flash" picture from you today! You got a nice pov and did an excellent composition. Details are very sharp too! Maybe a little bit underexposed (easily corrected by PS eventually). Nice dof too! Good post and TFS,

Hi Ricardo so good to see you back on site safe and hoefully well, a lot of people made enquiries as to your where abouts when you stopped posting suddenly,and no replies came from Emails to you, so it is good to see you back and inaction again.
a very dark but sharp shot I personally like moody shots so TFS and welcome back ;0))))))))))))

With the limited options you had, you created a super beautiful photo. The soft light is bringing out the colors beautifully. Your close up is perfect and the colors are super.

Superbe ce papillon. Le contrast de couleur avec le fond fonctionne à merveille. Le papillon est d'une netteté exceptionnelle.La composition est bien équilibrée et j'aime bien le fond flou ainsi que que la diagonale que forme le brin d'herbe.
Bravo pour cette belle réussite....JP

A huge welcome back!!!. You have been gone a very long time. This post is a magnificent way to celebrate your return. I am currently away on holiday and working from my notebook, but everything looks spot on to me. :-)
Deserves full points on all accounts, Ricardo.
TFS and take care.

Excellent macro! Sharp and clear detail, very nice colour and great POV.
Thanks for sharing!

beautiful shot, excellent in every aspect!
Sharpness is amazing, very well done with that slow shutter speed.
The "eye to eye" point of view culd not be chosen in better and more lively way, showing the underside of wings perfectly clear all over, and the upperside in well distinguishable good order, too. Details on the eyes and hairy body are just lovely.
The darkness of that hideaway before sunset has been perfectly captured. It looks very moody and cosy.
A wonderful image that is much more than just descriptive! Perfect notes, too.
Thank you! Best regards,

What a beautiful shot! I really like the pose of the butterfly and this beautiful little face you can admire with great details. You didn't use flash for this one and I think this is beautiful. Those colors seem very natural. I like this very good POV and composition too. Those colors are really well saturated and I appreciate this great DOF that let us see a beautiful BG. This is very nice ;)
