Hi Marius,
Fantastic shot, all parts of the butterfly are tack sharp, even the antennae. Great colors and exposure, perfect shallow depth to gain the viewer's attention on to the butterfly only. Fabulous image. About the ID: I think this is Neptis sappho, not N. hylas. Distribution: from Central Europe (Austria / Italy) to Japan, through the whole Asian continent. Have a look on this, please: http://jasius.hu/lepidopterology/nepsap.html
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Pierre,
Interesting and dynamic minimalistic shot. Just the battle and nothing else... I agree with Srikumar that the pic tilts left a bit, however, it looks interesting, also with the greatly exposed water rings.

Hi Marine,
Nice bunch of water lilies. The flowers became a little overexposed, please be careful about this in the future. Composition looks nice and shrpness is good, though. And please also don't forget the note next time...
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Sri,
I don't like white backgrounds, however, I more or less liked your other 2 photos made with this technique. But this one doesn't work for me. The pigeons are too small in the frame and the entire image is overruled by this blinding whiteness. Very unpleasant to look at (for me. Other people have different opinions, which is normal). I respect you very much, both as a person and as a photographer, so I rather avoid rating this pic. I just wish to see real nature photos from you again, you have a lot of extraordinary ones - not dull images with overprocessed yet uninteresting background as the main selling point.
Kind and respectful regards, László

Hi Srikumar,
The bird's beautiful, however, I find the plain white background even more surrealistic than simply filling the blank parts with a colour which doesn't have high contrast, for example grey or grey-ish green. Workshop is just a demonstration with different background colour. Anyway, the details on the plumage are fantastic, and I like everything on the image which is not white. ☺

Hi Silvio,
Another great shot from you, this time of a big moth. Wings are coloured like crust, the moth is really difficult to find when resting on wood! But on the greenery, the contrast is spectacular. Good photo with nice sunny colors and proper depth of field. Congratulations!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Silvio,
Great contrast between the butterfly and the pink flowers, and also between the bit busy left and the blank right side. Good sharpness, colors, depth as well, nice image.

Hi Peter,
Very nice shot. And a very difficult one as well - I myself never managed to make a useful photo of this beauty. I love the focus was taken to the closest square millimetre of the wing, so no out-of-focus closer parts. Perfect exposure, nice details on both blacks and whites.
I understand you rather spend your time in the nature, not in front of a PC, but sometimes please visit us here in the future, too. Like you did now. You're always welcomed here.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Michel,
Fantastic portrait. Tack sharp plumage, and the background blur is very spectacular as well. Great eye contact, wonderful composition. Absolutely delightful! Bravo!

Hi Sri,
Beautiful photo, great eye contact and facial expression. I never before realized how long this species' legs are... Simplistic yet perfect shot. Congratulations!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
