Hello Tino,
A remarkable photo in very beautiful clear colours and excellent sharpness. The contrasts in colours between the butterfly and the plain BG is splendid. Maybe the butterfly is a bit too much centred. I should have cropped a piece from the right side, but that's personal.

hello Tino,
I had seen this fine picture, but somehow I forgot to write a critique. A most delicate shot and a fine decentred composition. I love the very subtle tints of this picture too.We also can see that you worked with the tripod.
Have a nice day
Kind regards

Ciao Tino,
Un meritato successo per questa foto, una bellissima farfalla incastonata in una altrettanto bella composizione. Nitidezza speciale e stupendo sfondo. Pulizia e ariosità rendono inconfondibile il tuo scatto.
