very pretty image, good use of lighting and depth. good impact. tfs.

Hi Seyfi!

I just have discovered your young gallery and I'm impressed by the quality of your butterfly pictures. The picture you present us here is superb, I particularly like the butterfly's position and the fine colours.

Kind regards


Merhaba Seyfi Bey, arada bunu kaçırmışım. Arka kanatın alt ön tarafındaki çift leke ile çok gözlü mavi (P.icarus) dan hemen ayırt edilen bu güzel çok gözlü esmeri harika görüntülemişsiniz. Elinize sağlık.
Selamlar. İyi bir hafta sonu dileklerimle.

Merhaba Seyfi,
very excellent presentation . Lovely dense colour of the argus with glowing orange spots. the Bg is very effective in giving the whole capture an attractive composition.
Well done, it is simply beautiful.


Renkler,netlik, kadraj hepsi çok yerinde olmuş, adeta iyi fotograf nasıl çekilir? sorusuna örnek gösterilecek yetkinlikte.

Tebrik ediyorum. Fotograflarınızla karşılaşmak benim açımdan sevindirici oldu.


Hello Seyfi

Hello Seyfi

You choose a fine POV to show the patterns
