Hi Horia

Firstly, just to mention that it is a worthy and well directed dedication to our mutual
friend Bayram. Certainly a lovely butterfly image, but I think that spectacular yellow
flower also does a lot to give visual stimulus. Great details captured all round with
vibrant colours to spare. However, I think the composition is well worth a special and
particular mention. The two big leaves at the bottom and the one small leaf at the top
created a lovely triangle effect and a balance to the whole arrangement. The yellow
explosion, created by the beautiful flower, are near the centre although it's positioned
just slightly to the left side of the central vertical line. This flower plays hosts to the
colourful butterfly which is also placed just off centre in the flower. Then there is the
little bee slightly obscured, but visible on the side of the flower (btw. I see that so far
Peter Roos (batu) was the only other critiquer that noticed it or commented on it).
And finally one finds the developing buds, the promise of tomorrows fresh flowers,
placed in the top right hand corner which also provided some degree of balance to
this amazing composition.

All of this was accomplished through a top-down capture which shows the earthen
colours and textures as a lovely complimentary BG. Three species displayed in this
very neat little package.

Well done MF and TFS.

A nice tribute, Horia. I like the contrast of the butterfly against the flower, and the good depth-of-field control for the subject of this image. Your choice of settings resulted in excellent sharpness; the point-of-view is effective; and I think the framing, though perhaps not necessary, is understated and tasteful.


Buna Horia,

Thank you very much for this beautiful dedication MF.
All are incredible MF! Great details, colours and delightful composition.
Thanks once more my friend!
Have a great day!

Ps. Sorry for late commenting. I had some internet connection problems to TN.
