Bonita macro Hugo, con buena nitidez y colorido, incluyendo los difíciles blancos.
Me agrada el POV y el DOF es muy adecuado, creando un fondo difuso y suave.
Sólo existe un área de las alas que aparecen oscuras... no utilizaste el flash como relleno?
Buen trabajo.
Espero continuar viendo nuevos trabajos tuyos, así como tu participación activa opinando y criticando imágenes de otros miembros.
Saludos... Ricardo

Macro bonito Hugo, com claridade boa e colorindo, incluindo o difícil branco.
Eu gosto de POV e DOF é muito apropriado, enquanto criando um fundo difunda e macio.
Uma área das asas que você eles só se aparece existe escuro... você não usou o flash como eu enchesse?
Bom trabalho.
Eu espero continuar vista novo seus trabalhos, como também seu participação ativa dizendo e criticando imagens de outros sócios.
Saudações... Ricardo

Lovely details and good POV. Needs a note :-)



Hello Hugo,
Welcome to TN! This is a fine shot of the Southern White Admiral. If you like, I might be able to improve it a little with regard to the shade on the hindwing by taking it to the workshop.
Regards, Ivan

Hi Hugo

Love this shot. Perfect details, well composed and excellent out of focus background. TFS.

Fantastic shot of this beautiful butterfly. Very sharp, nice background and great colours. It's just a bit too dark.
TFS, Ulla

Great shot of this rather rare butterfly. The wings edges are little bit smooth but the rest ae OK. I like it
