Hello Chris
Great capture with sharp details and natural colors.

Bardzo ciekawy motyl, widać każdą żyłkę na skrzydłach. Jeszcze takiego u siebie nie zaobserwowałem.

Hi Chris.
You managed to capture a very beautiful moth. Its shapes and nice "clothes" are amazing. Pictured scene is fine at whole. This beauty is looked on a wonderful flower against the smooth green BG perfectly. Exposure and composition of the shot are spot on. TFS and warm greetings.

Hello Chris
the Black-veined Moth and little colorful flower are perfectly in focusing on a neutral background that puts in prominence the depth of the photo. Optimal contrast and clear details for a great composition.

Hi Chris. I lile the beautiful natural colours and the perfect wing's graphic weft. Right DOF and amazing BW.


Buen encuadre, colores y contrastes. Algo justa de enfoque.
