Amazing shot, Nice DOF and POV. The over subject looks so much attractive with that idea of overexposing the flower.

Thanks for sharing.

Hello Roberto,
The flower is overexposed, but the butterfly is fantastic. Excellent sharpness, details and clear colours. Very good POV, composition and OOF BG.

Ciao Roberto,
Come potete dare un nome ... "Butterfly accurate" ', forse!
Impressionante, e una laterale POV classica posa, la luce č perfetta, l'approccio č un lavoro di capolavoro. Very good work, fotografia eccellente rivolgendosi a una molla che si sta avvicinando voi.

Hi Roberto. A fine close up of this beautiful butterfly which you have taken with fine detail and bright colours. We can see all of the closed wing markings. It stands out well from the plain BG. well taken TFS.

Ciao Roberto,
Fine lighting, colours and sharpness allow us to see the small details of the underside of the wings of this Painted Lady as she feeds with her wings closed and the neutral BG show her up well.
Thanks for this nice reminder of summer!
Have a good week,

Beautiful butterfly showing amazing colors and fine details. Excellent background, too.

Well done, Roberto.



Bien aplicado el extyra de saturación de color, con un fondo y colores sorprendentes.
Saludos y buena semana: J. Ignasi.

Ciao Roberto, il fiore bianco l'hai fatto nero per quant'č bruciato, ma la Vanessa č perfetta, bell'omaggio alla regina dell'estate, bei dettagli e splendida nitidezza, fiore a parte ottima macro, bravo, ciao Silvio

Ciao Roberto,
una bellissima macro di Vanessa del cardo con una straordinaria definizione e colori ben saturati, l'immagine complessivamente č ben esposta, anzi la sensazione č che tu abbia cercato una leggera sottoesposizione, ma nonostante questo accorgimento il fiore bianco in primo piano č "bruciato", in pratica penso che sia stato irrecuperabile per vedere qualsiasi dettaglio, comunque sia, un'ottima immagine.
Grazie e complimenti
Buona settimana
Ciao Maurizio

Hallo Roberto
I am a bit scarce around the site at the moment, please pardon my short note. This image is very sharp, and the colours and markings are truly lovely. I like the plumpish body of the butterfly. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
