Hi Nikos,
A very unique photo of the small spider. Proper flash usage to provide enough lights without washing the colors out, and I like the composition also (eventhough a bit more space at left and a bit less at right might be useful, I think) and the warm color tones. Nice depth of field as well. Beautiful shot overall, congratulations!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Luciano,
We should say this is love at first sight. :-) Congratulations for this superb shot. Great playing with lights / shadows, proper exposure, beautiful sharpness. The composition, which sells an image, can't be any better with antennae on both sides in front of blurry, green background (what I have no problems with). Excellent image, bravo!

Hi Ian,
I agree with Luciano, this is an artistic and attractive shot showing the raindrops on a very colorful surface. However, if you adjust the focus to the closest raindrop and you close the aperture to, let's say, f/8 or higher to gain more depth of field, the image would even be more spectacular. Only a personal opinion, obviously.

Hi Silvio,
Gorgeous photo. Although with such busy background I wished to see much more blurry background (f/2.8), especially because the butterfly themselves didn't need high depth of field, the off-centered composition helped. Great sharpness and light management as well. Good photo, nice details on the wings. Congratulations!

Hi Sri,
This species is also common in Eurasia, but I don't remember if I've ever seen such a spectacular photo of them. The early morning lights are fantastic, such as the simple, yet pleasant composition. Great exposure as well, and a powerful image overall. Congratulations!

Hello Silvio,
Beautiful butterfly and you have captured it well with good details and colors. In such unfriendly location, off center placement helps to enhance the interest of the viewers. Well focused on its tiny eyes.

Beautiful bird and well captured. Exposure on such white petals looks good with well details. Perfect portrait. Although I personally like full bird in frame.

Hello Nikos,
Perfect background for such tiny Bee. I like your composition the way you have given bit space in front of the bee. Details could have been little bit better, but not bad. Well exposure.

This background better than your recent post. Less distractive, and helps to focus on butterfly only. Good details a search exposure. To me bit tight although 😉

BEAUTIFUL species and quite well captured their majestic pose. The color white looks bit overexposed due to harsh Sunlight. Otherwise beautiful bird picture.

Hello Ori,
Reminds me a kind of grass in India, although I don't know name. Well captured. Good details and exposure. Sometime we take pictures against blue sky, whether it's birds or plants, but I've seen pictures look bit less attractive, comparing a shot of bird or plant against brownish or dark or green background.

Hello Musa Sahaab,
Nice to see this Wild Barley. Quite well captured if we see its color. Composition and POV don't look good. Diagonal out of focus line (mountain may be) just crossed behind the subjects. Bit distracting to me. Before click one should watch background once, it's important to me.

Hello Luciano,
Congratulation for your first shot of this year of this couple. Everything looks good, mainly details and exposure. Light is looks good. To me bit tight and not perfect background for such mating butterfly. A lot semi out of focus disturbing leaves;I prefer total out of focus background in such moments. If you follow professional Butterfly pictures of professional photographers, you should know, I think.

Hello Satirtha,
Very nice background 👌
Quite well captured this Thrush. Sharp focus on its eye. Don't use AUTO Mode, if you use. Details look quite well, but you could get better. Exposure looks good.

Hello Silvio,
Butterfly looks small in the frame;composition could have been better, in my test. Otherwise very good exposure on white wings, as well as good details. Unfortunately, head portion engulfed by shadow and here need bit light as well as details. I like that flower, just in front of the butterfly 🦋
