Ola Milos,

Que belíssima foto!!
Adorei as cores , detalhes, composição, foco, iluminação...Uma festa para os olhos!!
Muito obrigada por compartilhares tua imagem!
Saudações do Brasil,

bonjour milos
posé ainsi sur le pissenlit ses couleurs ressortent bien.
bonne netteté,la lumiere est egalement tres bien.
beau contraste.

Ahoj Milos.
Pekny obrazok, presne tak to teraz vonku v tychto koncinach vyzera. Ma to atmosferu, ked to vies spravit, tak je vysledok takto dobry.
Len rozmyslam ako vsetci tie motyle fotite. Mne sa to este nikdy nepodarilo. Netrufam si nahanat motyla po luke. Vzdy vyhra. Potom si v duchu pomyslim ze ich asi ochladzujete alebo co ked vam tak pokojne sedia na luke.
Dobre svetlo. Bye.

Hi Milos.
I like, first of all, the DOF. It is perfect. Whole images of beautiful butterfly and perfectly reproduced flowers are in focus. Vivid colours, crisp sharpness of the image, deep impressive BG and composition are perfect too. Once your skillfully done charming picture. Bravo and TFS.

Both subjects are nicely captured, and together they are a very good image of spring!

Hi Milos,
actually I plaed to be out in the garden today, but it rains and I have to spend the day inside. Your composition makes up for the day lost, its wonderful colors cheer me up.
Gorgeous details and the sharpness is excellent.

Great macro Milos. Great composition with very good sharpness, great colours and very good details. Very good job. Well done. Thank you for posting.

Hi Milos,
I missed this superb photo while I was traveling. Gorgeous saturated colors in a wonderful composition. Inclusion of the dandelion yet to bloom on the right edge is a terrific idea. Very well done. Regards,
