Hi Krzysztof. I am sure Ivan will love this first class picture .I like the way it stands out from the our focused BG. The heather pant with its pick flowers along with the butterfly has such natural looking colours and first class detail. Well taken TFS.

Hi Krzysztof,

Pleasing to the eye from a great capture.
Very nice vivid colors and fine details.
Light, accompanied by a successful composition, perspective and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing.

Best regards,

dosc ciekawe ujecie. Motyl w cieniu i tlo w sloncu. Wydawaloby sie, ze tlo bedzie zupelnie odwracac uwage od motyle. Na szczescie udalo Ci sie (albo aparatowi :-)) dobrze wywazyc ekzpozycje i wszystko ladnie zagralo.

Hello Krzysztof,
The light is difficult, but well used, the POV is lovely ... and the background is worthy of a first prize of the contest! What background !.... Some purists might say that the cut is too square and that the composition reduces the visual impact. But I find that the picture is nice as it is! congratulations, good job! Sincerely, Jesús

Hi Krzysztof,

Impeccable capture, the details and sharpness look perfect. Such a brillant shot, certainly easy on the eye.
TFS and have a nice week MF!


Hi Krzysztof

Good shot of this lovely butterfly. I like the vertical composition and OOF background. Good sharpness and POV.
