Sebnum, alsolutely stunning. The composition and details are excellent. Your POV with the flower and the Swallowtail in a curve is quite artistic, I love it. The flowers look a bit oversharp as I can see a halo around some of the lower centre ones, but the butterfly looks great. Well done.

Beautiful colour, very sharp image, good composition.
Merhaba Şebnem Hanım,
Her zamanki gibi teknik ve estetik değeri yüksek bir fotograf. Özellikle hep karşılarmayı umduğum, fakat bir türlü karşılaşamadığım bir türü görüntülemiş olmanız ilgimi dahada arttırdı. Kutlarım sizi. Elinize sağlık.
Not: Bu arada belirtmeden geçemiyeceğim, babanızın bahçeside içinde bir sürü cevheri barındıran çok verimli bir maden gibi maaşallah..:))

What a fabulous capture. Well done. This is absolutely awesome. Fantastic. Your DOF is amazing. Well done and TFS
What a picture. Very good. Clkours, sharness composition.
I made some of the same butterfly but now I have my doubts to post it.
Just a remark: May the colours are a bit overdone.

Fantastic work Sebnem! Butterfly, flower, BG, composition - all looks superb. Some kind of fragile beauty, exceptional photo!

This is a beautiful shot. The colour of the BG is wonderful. It enhances the shot. The b'fly is a lovely colour. Exposure is excellent with good sharp details. Nice work. Thanks.
Amazing photo this is.
So many unusual things you have presented here. POV is different from most of the posts we see here in TN. BG is quite unusual and captivating, I donno what do you have here in the BG so colourful.
Nice bunch of flowers and composition.

Very nice capture from our fathers garden;).Next weekend I'll be there.Thanks for sharing.
A new way of criticising. I hope you don't mind.
DOF:3, wingtip is oof
Scale 1-5, 5 is the best.
The flower is fantastic and so is the bg, but the white square in the right is distracting imo.
very nice one Sebnem,
the colours are nice, the composition can be done better, but even I like the way you took it, the pov is nice, and the dof is very good, very good job anyway,

WOOOOOOOW ! What a superb butterfly that you have well captured ! Composition, vivid colors, DOF, details and sharpness are excellent ! Thanks Sebnem for sharing this beauty.
It is a pleasing composition. I like the BG colors and effect. The colors seems overly saturated (especially the purple) Lovely subject and nice and sharp details. You could have sacrificed a bit of the s/speed to gain more DOF but I am unsure what would have happened to the nicley blurred BG then. "Always a trade off" :)

Beautiful image, Sebnem.
The only nit IMO is the bright part to the right.
The colours are lovely, well composed and good details.
Very well done.
Very good shot of this Papilionidae!
But it's not a Papilio machaon or zelicaon!
It's a Iphiclides podalirius (Linnaeus, 1758)!
Both are Papilionidae, but are species diferent species!
What a confusion with this species...
Very good colors and details!
Take a look at:
for the Iphiclides podalirius (Linnaeus, 1758)
for the P. machaon
As you can see, they are diferent species.
Sebnem, Very pleasing shot with vivid colors and composed well. Good details, exposure and sharpness. I use ISO 200 with no image noise and ISO 400 with very little and easily removed PP. I think ISO 100 here was too low to give you needed DOF and shutter-speed handheld..Overall a very nice shot.

Hello Sebnem, this is a very nice shot. The details and lighting on the butterfly are great. I'm really not concerned with the wing tip being a little OOF. The upper right hand side is a little distracting and I think the whole image would benefit if it was cropped out, it would certainly bring more attention to the magnificent butterfly.
- christophe (1781)
- [2005-08-01 14:30]
Excellent capture,great orange BG, the little problem is The colors are saturated a little too much
In a friendly way Christophe
Great note, the piece about the caterpillar is amazing.
A beautiful image, the colours are outstanding. I personally found the white on the right hand side of the image quite distracting.
The butterfly is magnificent with the focus exactly where it needs to be.
Thanks for posting.

I love it Sebnem,
Good sharp detail and good POV. Nicely exposed and superb colours. Good composition.
Really very well captured, thanks for posting. I hope your week is sunny and warm too..
Another beautiful capture from you.
The composition and POV are excellent.
Good clear details and a superb background.
I would have cloned or cropped the light area to the top right,It does lead my eye away from the subject.
Nice work,very well done.

How it is splendid! It is really a nice shot. The colours of the butterfly and the flowers are detached very well from the background. The details are of a very high degree of accuracy. Cheers.

Personal assessment of the photo: excellent. Perfect composition. You have a photographic Eye. My only nit is the white zone to the right that is a little disturbing but is it really a nit? Dont pay attention to this remark.
Very strong visual impact.
A not easy shot.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
Personal assessment of the note: complete.
Have a great weekend!

Fantastic capture Sebnem. The colours in the background really sets the butterfly off in a most wonderful way. DOF/sharpness is perfect showing lots of details in the butterfly. The colours are simply fantastic as well as the composition. I do not know what more to say, I am simply running out of superlatives;-).
You did a fantastic job here - hats off.

A truly beautiful capture, great colors, focus and POV. I think it is the tiniest bit oversharpened though.

A few days ago I for the first time have seen and have photographed precisely such charming butterfly. Therefore at once I have decided to look photos of other authors.
Your picture is amazing also amazes imagination with perfect details, composition and an expressive background. Light and shadow of this picture are staggering. It's really the fine sample of a photoart.
My best wishes and TFS.
