Hello Jitti,
you found a nicely coloured specimen of pomona which is shown with superb sharpness.
Also the flower is presented in with high brilliance. With respect to composition, a crop on the left side
would be advantageous in my opinion.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Jitti,
A great shot of a Catopsilia pomona taken from a fine POV with excellent sharpness and well composed with the red flower against a contrasting natural BG. This is so sharp that you could have made a closer crop!
Thanks and all the best,

Hi Jitti,

I'm not sure which I find more beautiful - the Lemon Emigrant or the wonderful flowers and leaves. The combination is breathtaking. The colors, details and wing patterns of the butterful are exquisite. A magnificent setting and composition.


Hi Jitti,
a very clear and well detailed presentation of Catopsila pomona with unusual patterns, well captured in the act of sucking nectar. I like the good depth of field that provides very good details of the visited plant. For composition, some cropping at the left might be considered to increase the viewer's concentration on butterfly and blossoms.
Thank you! With best regards,
