Hello Jitti,

Hello Jitty,

Very nice image of these lovely pairing butterflies.
Love the wonerful colors and details at the wings.
Excellent sharpness and exposure.
As it comes to composition: Would have been nicer, atleast that's my opinion to see this image in a vertical or square format with less space on the right and left side.
Nevertheless a very nice shot at wich it is a real joy to look at.

Best regards, Harry

Hi Jitti,
nice shot with a good timing.
You captured the two butterlies very sharp and detailed.
The colors are very natural. The POV is very good.
Perhaps I'd crop the image a bit more. There's to much space on the right.

Hello Jitti,
Excellent capture of these two butterflies mating. I like the POV, sharpness is great and colours beautiful and natural. Maybe I would have cropped it a bit more on the right, otherwise a perfect composition.

The composition looks wonderful, specially the colors they are so rich and well saturated.
