Very nice Fatih, the butterfly does look so good on teh flower. It is a little soft, but you still show us his patterns and details. I do like his wing patterns. Well done,

hi Faith.

This is so beautiful. Is it the natural colours??

I like the contrast with the purple.

Well done

Merhaba Fatih Bey.
Tek kelime ile mükemmel. Çok sade ama çok güzel bir kompozisyon. Elinize sağlık.

Hello Fatih,

Very succeeded.

Hi Fatif

Superb shot, and very eye catching, the composition is excellent with a great POV, the detail is so sharp but I think it is the colours that really make the shot, the vivid lilac is beautiful and contrasts so well with the B/Fly and BG.

TFS Hilary :o)

Hi Fatih,
what a beautiful shot. I see that all your images are quite soft. Also this one is. With the digital Canon cameras the RAW pictures come out really soft. I happen to like that and therefor I shurely like this picture beside the object and composition. Most pictures I see on TN have a tendency of having higher contrast. I leave it to everyone to decide what he/she likes better. I like your picture the way it is. To show a little difference I'll post your picture as a workshop with the contrast pushed up
Compliments, JAcob

Hi Fatih

High quality shot. Beautiful colour tones and perfect composition. Thank you! :-)

Il n'est pas du tout facile de mettre en valeur ces papillons blancs. Ici vous l'avez très bien fait ! Netteté et composition sans reproche. Bravo

Nice image. composition is nice as are the subject colors. Not too keen on the background as it blends in too much with the subject color. Perhaps a bit more DOF

Very good capture. I've never seen this species.
Good colours and contrast. Nice composition - thanks


Hello Fatih,
Beautiful butterfly capture!
I like the minimalism in colours, well framed subject on the thistle...
Macro work well done, sharp clear details in the insect!
