Hi Luciano,
Excellent shot, with that smart flash usage which makes your photos so unique. You always manage to perfectly expose the subject and the foreground and not washing the colors out with the flash - that's not something every photographer's capable of. Very nice colors, pleasant composition, and the exposure cannot even be better... I just don't know how I missed this photo so far... hats off for you!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Pierre,
Some parts of the plumage may be a bit sharper, but nevertheless a good shot, lights, colors and the shallow depth are great each.

Hi Sri,
This is gorgeous again. Your double exposure kills! Without reading your note no one would think first this is a daytime photo. Draamatic exposure, and the whole image would be fine for a black metal album cover. :-) This is pure rock'n'roll my friend. Hats off for you!

Hi Srikumar,
Beautiful trio photographed with awesome clarity. Perfect exposure and shutter speed to freeze the action, fantastic odd number composition. Without doubt the 'Photo of the day' for me here. Bravo!

Hi Sri,
Light-wise a bit similar as your previous photo (not only in location), but the quality is the same extreme high, such as visual impact. Fantastic photo with the golden tone of sunset, and the composition's also gorgeous - simplistic yet very effective, with eye contact as a great addition. Perfect sharpness and exposure as well. Congratulations!

Hi Silvio,
Although I don't like intrusive, out of focus objects between the main compositional element and the lens (like some grass-blades here), the perspective of this photo is so unique that no one concentrates on these distracting elements. Little more contrast and color adjustment (just a touch less green and cyan) would have been applied, but the image is so spectacular that smaller technical issues may easily be overlooked. Congratulations!
Kind regards, László

Hi Silvio,
Interesting PoV, and the textures of the wing looks similar to bark of some trees for first sight (for me at least). Very effective shot, also because the well blurred background helps us to concentrate on the butterfly only. Great work!

Hi Luciano,
I did't know the species, but compared to the photos I found on the net this poor moth really lost her colors. But you managed to photograph this female specimen very well, light management is excellent as always, and contrast between the bright moth and the rather dark background cannot even be better. I like composition, sharpness and depth also. Not only extraordinary, but at the same time good photo also. Congratulations!
Kind regards, László

Hi Luciano,
Nice shot, but the background might be darker. :-) Anyway, great sharpness on the wing, and effective shallow depth. Not your best ever shot technically, but definitely an extraordinary one as it's quite rare to photograph butterflies on this latitude in November.

Hi Hasaan,
Good shot with shallow depth, colorwise a little undersaturated maybe, but the compossition's nice. Current scientific name is Cerioporus squamosus (Huds.) Quél., as the old Polyporus genera in its wide sense was polyphyletic.

Hi Srikumar,
That's gorgeous. Lights, colors, sharpness and most importantly composition is excellent each. Lovely photo. I'm only lacking the personal touch of your note, which made your previous ones so interesting to read.

Hi Silvio,
You already had better photos of this species in my opinion. Lights and colors are good, but neither the composition nor the perspective is interesting and the butterfly is too small in the frame. The whole image looks a bit too busy and it lacks a focal point for the viewer.
Best regards, László

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 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.
