Hi George,the pic is very very good,maybe the brown butterflies are not the best to try a backlight,but i like this composition,the excellent sharpness and the magnificent lights effects in background.Thanks for share,have a nice day,Luciano.

Hello George,
The light was not perfect but you have managed well, The colours, sharpness and composition are excellent but the flower competes with the butterfly, overall pleasing image,
Thanks for sharing and have a nice day,
Best Regards,

Lighting, great at that, has taken center stage here, beautifully used. Composition and the interesting background are worthy, well captured. tfs.

Hello friend, George, this very beautiful image, even if a little lower than the high standards to which we have become accustomed. Probably the backlight did lose a little detail to the butterfly. Best wishes, Paul

Thanks for sharing,

great focus sharpness and details, TFS


wonderful picture, very nice light, colors and background, good details too,

congratulations George !

un saluto, tino

Hy George
I consent with the general remark that the bg is simply fantastic: the point of interest does not go directly to the insect, but to the nice bokeh that you have obtained.
All the best,

Hello George,
An interesting and creative picture. Love the colors, the sparkling light-spots and the "ambiance" created by the particular light. I probably would have chosen another framing,a little bit more tight, but as well in a horizontal or vertical way. Interesting subject too.
Kind regards

Lubię zdjęcia pełne słońca - takie jak to!
Cudny motyl na łące, kolory i światło wspaniałe, ostrość i kompozycja także.
Gratuluję i pozdrawiam.

Lovely picture.. I mostly shoot butterflies but this photo is something different. Back-lit subject yet the details are preserved. Got to check your photos regularly.

Hi George,
Is good thing sometimes I decide take a "tour" through the gallery of TN! ... If neither were the case, I would have missed this! .. Amazing picture, great handling of light against! the BG is a poem!
Regards, TFS
