Hi Nitzan,
this wonderful butterfly has excellent sharpness and so pretty colours.
The antennas, the black eyes and the tongue like a spiral - that details are so beautiful.
I like it very much, thanks

Hi Nitzan,

A beautiful capture and well done on the composition and details. Excellent work.


This one is so beautiful Nitzan, sharp details, accurate DOF and stunning colours. Composition is good but maybe a little to centered to reward a 9.. but 8/10 it defiantly is . Excellent work.

Oh, you have tricked us here. You have done a beautiful painting and passed it off as a photograph. Of course i am kidding, but it does look almost like a painting. Just wonderful.

Such a beauty!
Wondrful butterfly!
Wonderful coloours it has!
Very good on details!
Very good POV and BG!

Outstanding clarity, color, and composition. Using your fill flash to freeze the insect and allow you the f/18 made this really sharp with great DOF. Well done!
