Personal assessment of the photo: great. Perfect composition. My only nit is the OOF of the top left wing.
Very strong visual impact.
A difficult shot.

HI Nitzan, I love the colours here in your photo. The butterfly and BG tone in so well. The b'fly is nice and sharp, apart from the front wing, bit a good composition. Nice job!

Hi Nitzan,
A beautiful capture and well done on the composition.
Just a little more DOF to get that wing in focus.
Excellent work.


Beautiful capture with excellent sharpness, colours and POV. DOF, even at F-10, is a bit too shallow for this chap, leaving the top part of the near wing outside DOF range.

A beautiful capture of this butterfly, Nitzan!

Excellent details, colors, lighting, POV, and BG.

Thank you for sharing this well composed posting.

this is a exellent shot of a butterfly. Wonderful warm colours. I like it. Good job.

Hello Nitzan! This is excellent work. I've spent alot of time shooting these here so I know how difficult they are..Mine are always moving, always fluttering their wings..
This is well composed with excellent colors, DOF, POV, details and sharpness..A pleasure to view, Very well done!

Hi Nitzan - great macro of a nice butterfly. Beautifull colors, good DOF and we can see many details. Well done !

Beautiful butterfly and perfect photo. I like its composition, sharpness and colors.

Hi Nitzan,
Very good shot, the light and sharpness are perftect.

Pity you just missed the wing in this shot, otherwise it would have been perfect. the rest of it is well focused and sharp and good composition.


Hi Nitzan

This image is fantastic. The subtle colours give this a serene mood. Lovely POV showing the wing pattern nicely. Well done. Thanks.

Hello Nitzan, great shot. The colours and exposure are great. I'd like to see the near wing in focus rather than the rear. The focus and sharpness are excellent. A very nice compoisition too.

Well done.

Nitzan, this is very beautiful.

Great lighting, pov and composition.

I like the blurred bg too.

A very beautiful butterfly, a great photo.

this is indeed a wonderful picture. Even the short dof produces some softness that enhances the result.

Amazing and Awesome shot Nitzan! Great Clarity and DOF.
