Ciao Sebastian, welcome on TN, great macro of lovely common blue, good DOF, excellent sharpness, splendid light and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Witaj Sebastian,
Welcome to TrekNature, most importantly. Your starting image isn't that bad at all - but I feel there's room for improvement also. First of all, the composition's too centered and static with the b-fly just in the centrum. Try to compose the main subject into any of the thirds of the picture. Secondly, the white balance was set quite incorrectly in my opinion and the photo suffers from the heavy yellow cast. Please have a look on my workshop image for these and other changes. In addition, please try to write notes to your pics. How you captured the scene, about the species etc. - anything goes!
Well, I'm prepared to see newer images of you, best regards from Hungary, László (Wladyslaw)
