Hola Ignasi,
Una linda foto, con algunos problemas de nitidez en las flores y la mariposa misma, que has tratado de solucionar con "sharpen" pero algo se nota. Me gusta de todos modos el acercamiento logrado y como se puede apreciar el hermoso diseño de las alas.

Hello Josep. Excellent framing with the butterfly in such detail perched on that stunning yellow flower. I like the pleasing colors and the muted background in this composition. Thanks for sharing and best regards. Jusni

Good composition..
