Very good macro, great colors and details, congratulations!

Hello Pawel,

Another beautiful shot from Sooty Copper from you! The sharpness and POV are prefectly chosen and so is the DOF. The colors of the butterflies are very well shown and the blurred BG just fits prefectly well to the subject in teh FG. Well done!

thanks and regards,
Paras Bhalla

Hi Pawel
A great moment - though it looks like a reflector would have made this shot even better. I've posted to the Workshop with adjustments on shadows and highlights. Good details and focus. Have a very good weekend!

Hi Pawel,

Exellent bg.


Hello Pawel,
Excellent capture, with a beautiful backlight and perfect sharpness on the couple and on the flower. Cheers,

Hi Pawel!

It's time of many butterflies on TN and it's hard to find the most delicate ones. This one stands out with the perfect quality and the special lighting, plus the additional action of mating. TFS!
