Nice detail. They have such a lovely soft blue to them. I think perhaps I might consider cropping it down a bit to give more impact to the main character of this story? But then again, I'm partial to fairly tightly framed shots.

I like tightly framed shots like Dawn but this composition works for me. I like the leaf edge plus I'm not sure there is enough DOF on the lower back wing for a heavier crop. Nicely done.

I could go either way on the crop, Ovidiu. I also think the leaf adds to the interest and like that you have him more in the upper 1/3 of the image but I could also see a tighter crop with some off the bottom. I do like the details of this one and really like the colors/textures you've captured here.

This comp works for me, Ovidiu. I like the diagonal of the leaf, the even light, and the pleasingly OOF background. I wonder if you could coax a little more sharpness out of the wings? :)

Hey Ovidiu,
Nice luxury to have at picking a crop.....I like the flow of the leaf as presented....but you wouldn't hear me complain about a crop either! Very nicely done!
