Hola Ricardo. No cabe la menor duda que en la composicion contrasta lo imaculado, natural y colorista de la mariposa con lo industrial del oxido del fondo. El efecto tiene fuerza.
You hubiera girado ligeramente la foto para dejar la mariposa recta y la prespectiva al centro.
Recibiste mi mensaje? Saludos, Felipe.

Wonderful indeed!
Such a great colors!
Excelent photo of this Nymphalidae!
Great on details and sharpness!

Very nice shot of this Vanessa that I see it for the first time. Was it sitting on the earth or something else? Because the background has a strange yet very beautiful texture.

Estupenda mariposa. Un fondo extraño, pero le queda muy bien. Los colores del conjunto son muy calidos. He hecho un workshop pero no estoy segura de haber mejorado nada tu bella composicion. Un saludo.
