[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Zygaena lonicerae.
Una especie que puebla casi toda Europa.
Técnicamente nunca conseguia fotografiar sus ojos con claridad y en esta ocasión lo he conseguido en buena medida; ayudó a ello la luz de primera hora de la mañana.

Hello Josep Ignasi,
great shot. The composition is very nice and the focus and DOF are good.Best regards Siggi

Perfectly executed macro shot on that little white flower my friend, Josep Ignasi.
The moth is in unique perch and your capture is simply brilliant.
Thanks and have a great weekend.

Hola Josep.

Magnifico macro,y bonita luz que resalta mejor los detalles,buen fin de semana y que sea productivo fotograficamente hablando.

Good day Josep,
well in my opinion this capture is a bit over exposed and in that respect the colors are looking somehow washed , my friend. A simple click on Auto Contrast in Photoshop can resolve the issue quite easily! The highlights however has been lost forever...just have a look the plant! Shooting in RAW can help a lot and some mistakes like those once can be easily fixed my friend! Well maybe next time!

Hi Josep.
Yes, images may be missing from the contrast a little bit and maybe is a little overexposed in the white color of the flower. However, the capture of this small moths is very good. I like your used POV and accurate sharpening. As well as a very good background blurred. Thanks for sharing of this very nice species.
Best regards

Hi Josep,a great pic of this terrible zygaena!Maybe the cloudy day is the best solution to take these insects full of reflections,great sharpness and details too,i like it!Thanks for share,have a nice Sunday,Luciano

Hola Josep,
Que pose y que punto de vista!... Bravo!... Un poquito alta de luz y veo que sigues con una notable "alergia al post-procesado"... je... je... je... pero esta foto es tan buena (sabes que me gustan mucho los macros de lepidopteros) que no quise dejarla pasar sin verla un poco procesada. Hice un workshop y lo subí, espero que no te importe... me parece que me pasé un poco con la temperatura de los colores, pero fue un ensayo. Saludos, Feliz Domingo para ti y tu gente!

  • Great
