Hi Musa,
Although the subject in itself wouldn't be that spectacular, the lights make it unique. Great contrast between the golden grass and the rather shady background. It works for me.

Hi Lou,
Not only aesthetically beautiful, but also a unique image. It's rare to see Asterophora lycoperdoides with such well developed fruitbody. Spectacular macro with perfect sharpness and most of all, composition. Bravo!

Hi Ben,
Excellent photo with great pose from the heron. Beautiful details / sharpness on the plumage and well blurred background to gain attention on the heron only. Nice colors, especially the orange / red legs make good contrast with the other part of the image. Elegant work, congratulations! Just a little amendment to your note: the genus name is Butorides, not Bactorides.

Merhaba Seyfi bey,
Fantastic macro, the details on the wings are tack sharp and the off-centered composition is pleasant to look at. Perfect exposure even in harsh lights, and nice white balance settings as well. Background's a little noisy, but the image itself is lovely overall. Congratulations!

Hi Sri,
The eagle is very nice, and the background is less disturbing, because it has a little grey-ish tint, not fully white, therefore not blinding the viewer. Great details on the plumage. And about the last few sentences of your note: in case of passport photos the white background works well, but this site is TrekNature, not TrekPassport. ;-)

Hi Silvio,
Very nice shot, the butterfly and the flower are both tack sharp. It's a pity there was a grass-blade between your lens and the b-fly, without that the photo would be even more effective. Anyway, except for this, a nice shot.

I hope you'll be able to return to the site soon. Although the blank space IMHO is a little too much at the top, nice macro overall with good lights and colors.

Hi Luciano,
I have no problem with the background, it fits to the image well and helps to concentrate on the moth only. I think if you have a boxwood (Buxus) in your garden the plant's very happy that you don't meet this species too often. ☺ Proper flash usage again and a nice classical composition wwith excellent sharpness. Top class shot in my opinion.
Kind regards, László

Hi Luciano,
Beautiful moth, and as always, you used flashlight in an extraordinary way to get the most proper light conditions. Mesmerizing pink with great textures on the wing as well. The only thing I might have done differently is a vertical composition. Otherwise very nice image.

Hi Hasan,
Beautiful species. Be careful with the lights when photographing fungi with such bright colours as some small parts often can be overexposed, like it happened on this otherwise nice picture.

Hi Luciano,
Not a bad photo, but - in my opinion - not on the high standard we often get from you. I understand this was the first time you saw this species, it's always a unique occasion, so I'm talking about the aesthetic side of the image only. The out of focus leave is distracting as it's too large in the frame and is hiding the entire body of the butterfly. A pity, because sharpness is fine on the wings and the exposure seems good as well.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Ben,
Gorgeous photo, the unique flowers are tack sharp, the exposure is spot on and the red of the flower, especially where got a bit of sunshine, is wonderful. Spectacular shadow depth of field as well, and for the whole majestic composition, the chosen point of view is superb, too. Absolutely the photo of the day for me.

Hi Sri,
You know I don't like this blinding white background, but you deserve the highest credit for photographing the spectacular bird in an excellent way (I guess a female specimen). Great details and perfect sharpness on her everywhere. What a pity you didn't get proper lights to make this shot a masterpiece. Thanks for sharing, anyway.

Hi Silvio,
Interesting shot again with perfect shharpness. Great composition, too, however I can imagine a bit tighter crop at right, and also at the top. Minimal, but truly just a slight, green overcast, which can be easily detectable on the white flower and on the butterfly wings, too. Anyway, these are just minor errors, the image is spectacular, thanks for sharing.

Hi Sri,
Are you sure you made a proper red-eye reduction? ☻ Fantastic shot, not only due to the mesmerizing red eye, but due to the color gamut of the background also. Very good contrast with the predominantly black bird. Head and the underneck territory are tack sharp, probably the lower wing could have been slightly sharpened more. Anyway, a majestic piece of art. Congratulations!

Hi Peter,
Splendid shot of an endemic species of the Indian subcontinent. Focus on the lower part of the wings is excellent, such as the DoF which kept all parts of the butterfly sharp (except for the left antenna, which became a little out of focus), and even the lovely Rumex leaves also. Lovely composition and white balance, again a very high quality image from you. As I always ask: if you have more time, energy and wish, please come more regularly to TN as we miss you. Thanks.

Hi Dietrich,
Very spectacular shot. Except for the lower wings, tack sharp with incredible details, while background is well blurred to gain the attention on the dragonfly only. Onee of the best photos from the series. Bravo!
