Wonderful picture and good sharpness and details, i can see the hairs on the butterfly. The flower adds value to the pic.

Great capture you got there, friend! You must have zoomed a lot to get a closer shot of this one.

Over all, it's impressive.

Satish, Oooye maa. What a stunning capture. Oops wonerful. I really missed this chance this time for Onkar Hills. I will not miss it next time. ganesh

Hello Satish,

This is a very good capture of an intimate moment! I love the square format but would have placed the composition a little bit higher in the frame. The profile silhouettes of the two lovers are easy readable against the perfect background. The details are excellent and sharpness spot-on. Very good natural colors and contrast! The picture looks a little bit dark but this isn't a major issue. I like it anyway! it's a rare moment! Great job! Thanks a lot!

With Friendly Regards,

Good one - great pose and detail! A little noisy - seems you had tough light, huh? Well done nevertheless! Cheers, Klaus

Dear Satish, great shot, i like your
composition. I ahve posted a slightly different position. TFS. with best regards.vab.
