Next your fantastic (not only in its beauty) picture. Even in studio it is difficult (or impossible) to create such amazing composition. The back light is tremendous too. It creates a very expressive esthetic effect. BG is the separate story. Its colour tones highlights your main subject extremely well. You are great creator, dear Peter. Superb work. My congratulations and best wishes.

Hello Peter, what a surprising and wonderful composition. Amazing that you got both butterflies sharp with only F4! Unless the difficult light you got all detail sharp. Great work, Jacob

Wonderful capture of the both. Excellent focus with both pin sharp. Lovely colours, POV and DOF. The backlighting makes this wonderful

This is a real photographic performance! Two Silver-washed Fritillaries som distance apart and good focus despite the low aperture. Not only that: the lighht is not easy but has given you fantatstic tones against a superb nearal BG.
You should enter this in a nature photographer's competition!
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Guten Abend Peter,
endlich sehe ich mal wieder ein Bild aus deiner 'Werkstatt'. Ein wirklich phantastischer perspektivischer Blick und das mit immer noch überzeugender Schärfe beider Falter. Das Licht hast du brilliant gemeistert, so dass selbst die oben sitzende Blüte kaum Überexposition zeigt. Für diesen Blickwinkel hast du sicher das optimale Ergebnis des optisch Machbaren erzielt.
Schöne Grüße, Peter

Sometimes we thank GOD for good things in our lives, you should thank DOF for this splendid shot :)
Nice work, not only DOF is good, but light was very well handled, and it was not easy. Congratulations.

Fantastic shot, with beautiful composition and excellent use of light. Amazing that you got such an extended DOF using f4. Technically superb but moreover, the shot has an artistic value that is beyond comment.
Well captured and TFS

Farblich und von der Komposition her wunderschönes Bild. Es erinnert an die schönen Insektendarstellungen des 18. und 19. Jh.Da zeigst Du dich von einer sehr künstlerischen Seite..aber, die hatten wir ja schon vorher bemerkt.

Hermosa pareja de mariposas que a modo de equilibristas liban el néctar de estas preciosas flores. Una buena composición, con una luz magnífica Peter.
Muchas gracias y un abrazo, JL.
Nice image indeed.
Both are sharp! Some kind of DOF wonder!?

Looks like Vienna is European Capitol of Butterflies ;-) Another great photo from you. Lovely moment with side and back views. I like composition, details and light which made leaves semitransparent. Very interesting post!

Well, my friend...you did it again ;)
This is really a rare and spectacular capture! Both angles in the same time!...amazing!
The fosud and DOF here are most impressive an deven more surprising is that you used only f/4.
The light is equaly great making all the colors and element glitter.
Very well composed, too.
Bravo and TFS

excellent light color and composition.
Unfocused green plants would have been better than an uniform grey background. Weel nothing to do about it. It is a small nit anyway.

WOW! to get two of them in the same frame with each in a distinct and different pose is excellent. The backlighting is beautiful here. Great composition and framing. Great detail and a superb OOF backround. Really supeb camera work on this one. BEAUTIFUL!

La primera impresión que me causó al verla es que existía una ligera sobre exposición, pero al observar en detalle, vi los colores y contrastes, las áreas luminosas y en sombra tan maravillosas, que la iluminación se convirtió en uno de los puntos fuertes de esta composición querido amigo.
La belleza de las mariposas en todo su esplendor, realzadas por el perfecto foco y agudeza sobre ambas, sumado a la colaboración del perfecto fondo, conforman una imponente muestra de tu talento tras la Sony.
Gran punto de vista, gran encuadre.... Cheers!!!

The beauty of the butterflies in all their splendor, enhanced by the perfect focus and sharpness on both, added to the collaboration of the perfect bottom, they conform an imposing piece of your talent behind your Sony.
Great point of view, great framing.... Cheers!!!
Well done Peter.
Excellent job of getting both subjects in..
Good control of the light with nice backlighting. Great detail and an interesting compositional duet :)
Have a great week mf.
PS - I've had terrible internet strength the last 5 days. Can't upload either..Tornados in the Atlanta Georgia area have messed up my satellite internet "hub" for now :(

Two in one - good catch. Nice light and compo. With DSLR you don't get such DOF with 4.0. Nice BG. looks great.
- loot (11276)
- [2007-01-13 3:23]
Wow, wow, and wow. How much do you pay these butterflies for such an amazing pose? The best of all possible shots with a top view and a side view all in one.
I like this fine composition, rich and well saturated colours, crisp details, superb BG, and the amazing backlight the stream through the insects and the plants.
Very good work and TFS.
PS. Sorry for the short critique, but I’m having problems again with the cellulites and cannot sit at the PC for long.
