bonjour Emin
superbe photo bravo

Well this earns an A+ from me! That is so special to have the butterfly with that great habitat behind. The sharpness of the foreground is superb, and against the soft background is stunning. It is a wonderful composition. Nice work.

Evelynn : )

Wow! Superb capture of this colorfull butterfly. The BG is just amazing. Like the POV and the fine details of the subject. Very good work.

Hello Emin,
surprising backlight image with semi clear background. Wonderful! The silver line around the butterfly is great. Also the fact you showed something of the background is very nice here...

Merhaba Emin... aesthetic composition with the butterfly and the thistle like excuse.

I like it a lot: composition, POV, DOF, focus, sharpness, colors, lighting, background, framing.

I like it: notes.

I don't like it: the lack of the values of the image.

Beautiful point of view with adorable light effect.
Very good work... thank you for sharing.
A cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Mükemmel bir kompozisyon, elinize sağlık, Muhteşem...


One could easily mistake this for a painting. The valley at the background adds to the beauty of the picture.

Hello Emin,
showing this endemic grayling in its mountain valley habitat makes this a very valuable and unusual contribution. The beautiful backlight creates a strong impact on flower and butterfly with its corona of bright fringes, and it creates a very dense atmosphere in this dramatically deep mountain gorge. A perfectly describing butterfly shot combined with breathtaking outlook.
Thank you! Best regards,

Hallo Emin,

What can I say. This is a super super picture. Almost a macro combined with a landscape. It is a great macro. Very well done.

Fonun ve kelebeğin ayrı değerlendirilip iki defa puanlanması lazım. Çok güzel olmuş Emin. Eline sağlık.

Hi Emin,

Merhaba Emin cok basarili bir resim daglar arkada ve net kelebek iyi dusunce guzel composition tebrikler selamlar Necip

Just beautiful.

Love the compostition and to include the moutains in the background really makes this pic stand out from the crowd.
Also really like the highlighted wing tip making the butterfly clearly defined. It is very well focused and the whole image is a testament to the great photos you have taken.
Well done TFS

Hi Emin,
Wonderful photo, one of the best butterfly shots I have seen.
