[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Found this Tiger whirling in one of the gardens of Khajuraho. As i was trying out white balances's in Nikon D80, could'nt get the background perfectly but got this one. The wings outline was not that sharp. Sigma optics in the end somehow have a lower edge on nikkor.

Hello Ameya,
It is a nice photo in all the aspects. Congratulations!
P.d. I think is a nice idea to do a vertical cut of the image.
Best regards

Hello Ameya,
This is an intriguing picture. I am trying to get an idea about the background, but it looks like a minimalist creation, with the foreground cut out of the main picture and then sat in the cream wasteland. It looks very artistic, but not very natural. Thanks.

Hello Ameya,
I wish to thank you for choosing me as your favourite. Well, I feel honoured.
Coming to your picture of the butterfly, it is a good capture. The butterfly is in good focus and looks nice atop the purplish red flower.
Keep shooting and I am sure you would get better day by day.
I would suggest you impose copyright signature at the bottom of the image in small letters. Better still, draw a frame around the picture and put it there.
Secondly, I am a little doubtful about the ID of the butterfly. The best thing to do is to conduct a little research on the web about butterflies of India.
All the best to you.
