wow! the hues in this image and background are spectacular. Great detail on BF..............love the curved leaf and presentation of the BF. I could wish for in-focus antenna, but doesn't take away. IMO you nailed it!

Another great butterfly/BG color combo, Ovidiu!
Those OOF antennae are an easy fix. Just select them and sharpen them. I used the quick mask to select and used smart sharpen to sharpen.

Super image...love the colors in the bg and fg that really just make the reds in the bf pop

Outstanding, Ovidiu! This one is pure butterfly perfection! The lighting and exposure are spot on and the BG is perfect. The diagonal lines there really add to balance the roundness of the butterfly itself. Lovely work!

This is one of those images that is so simple compositionally that combined with the excellent sharpness and background, makes it a wonderful shot of a beautiful subject!:)

Lovely image of the beautiful butterfly. Liked the way the BG has shades similar to that of the wings.
Neatly composed.
