Nice pose on the Painted Lady.
I think one or two cm:s crop on top may put more focus on the butterfly.
Great sharpness and colours.Have you tried to bring down the brightness curve
a notch?

Lovely! You might try croping a bit top and right. I love how the bright colors stand out against the blurred BG.

A very nice image with good sharpness, pose, and background, Adrian. I think that a little darker overall may be an improvement and I like the cropping suggestions above.

Very nice as presented, Adrian, good EXP and detail. I may turn this more into a vertical.

Very nice image Adrian, I like the exposure as presented, sharpness and details are excellent. I would also crop to a more vertical presentation.

Agree with Fabs on the vertical presentation...I'd take a bit off the top and left side. I'd also tone it down just ever so slightly as it feels like the whites are almost distracting.

Hi Adrian,
For me, it does not need toning down and I love the soft colours in the BG. I'm sitting on the fence as regards the vertical presentation.
