Hi Pentru,
Nice photo, well presented. The image could be a little sharper but your POV and DOF are spot on. Nice display of black and white on the butterflies wings.

Hi Petru,
Beautiful butterfly that you are showing here. This one looks like its cousin in my area. Nive pov and composition. TFS.

Hello Petru,
Good diagoanl composition!
The butterfly is captured with fine details and fine natural colours...
Pablo -

Faore fain fluturele, ultima data cand l-am vazut a fost in urma cu cca 3 saptamani la Cheile Bicazului.
Imi place foarte mult pov-ul tau, focusul, culorile si compozitia sunt super.
Numai bine,

sal Petru,
nu te supara ca intreb, vad aberatii cromatice, ai folosit cumva lentile aditionale?

POV-ul e frumos insa focusul mi se pare umpic trecut de planul fluturelui.

numai bine,

  • Great

Hi Petru. A good shot of the Butterfly. good detail and colour. A nice POV and DOF. Good notes to

Well done TFS.


Hello Petru,
the Hungarian glider, a frequent butterfly in the eastern and southern parts of Austria, too - these days even in front of my windows at home. The elegant, seemingly effortless gliding flight is a pleasure to look at every year. You have captured that wary glider in a very characteristic resting pose with good details.
Thank you! With best regards,

Hello Petru,

In spite of the black and white colors of this butterfly, its beauty cannot be overlooked when seen in the grass. Your diagonal composition is very good, with well distributed empty space and a very well saturated green support. I like the way you avoided the boring middle of the frame by placing the subject lower towards the right corner. Very well done! TFS!

With Warm Regards,

Ciao Petru, great macro of fasntastic butterfly, splendid sharpness, wonderful natural colors and fine details, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
