Ciao Roberto, altro capolavoro questa issoria lathonia. Grande ripresa ed immagine perfetta sotto tutti i punti di vista. Gran bel lavoro in p.p. Ancora un bravo, Paolo

Ciao Roberto, e la stessa di Luciano che ve la siete passata doo averla tenuta in frigo, poi ci hai messo l'amido per tennerla ad ali aperte, tecnica diversa, ma il risultato sempre strepitoso, ancor pi bella, a mio parere, la tua dove si pu godere anche di un'ottima ambientazione naturale, fantastica, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Ciao Roberto.
Quello che mi piace di questa foto il sentimento della natura, esso trasmette. I colori e le luci hanno un livello perfetto, il contrasto l'ideale. buon accordo sia per comporre verticale come il taglio a farfalla. Complimenti, come sempre, si effettua la visualizzazione di un gusto visivo sublime.
Saluti, grazier per la condivisione,
Jess

Dear Roberto

I believe that this magnificent picture merits the green little star! It's superb, and I especially like the very vertical point of view and the deep clarity. Together with the fine lighting it creates a very pleasant view of this beautiful butterfly.

Kind regards

Markus
