This is my first butterfly shot this year, it was taken at 9 oclock this evening after a five hour walk with Patch, the light was very poor so I used my macro ring flash.
Thanks for looking.
A very big thank you to Robert (RTDS) for the UA on my last image.
Regards. - gary
A five hour walk? What a lucky dog Patch is!
Super detail here, Gary, and the black background sets it off beautifully.
Stunning image Gary. So can you explain a little about your ring flash?
Is that an attachment?
You've achieved a great image with poor light.
your ring flash worked really well, I thought it was nice beam of sunlight!
Ring-flash has done for it Gary, the focus is spot on as is the DOF/POV, but the flash has over exposed most of the whites and it all looks too harsh mate.......I tell it as I see it.......Get that tripod out!!!
You are right what you say Ade but with out it I would have had no shot at all in the bad light so thought it was still worth showing, I appreciate your honesty my friend.
The flash at that time of day has captured the detail so well and set the subject against the very dark/black b/g, showing it off without surrounding visual distractions.
Lovely Gary, fantastic detail
Absolutely Fabulous image and very well spotted,
I always say that some shot is better than no shot at all Gary,
so good one for that !!
Take the shot ,study it later,so i am told.
Well done Gary-- good use of that lens!
Excellent macro shot and great detailed image Gary......
Don't worry Gary, you can rip into my post in the morning......Which isn't as good as I'd hoped
You've started the year off with a beauty Gary, a top shot mate.
Detail and clarity against the dark background, Gary.
And a fine one it is, too!
pin sharp detail gary wonderful colours and textures a real belter nice one
You'll get into big trouble one of these days if you continue to go out flashing in public! A smashing close up of this green veined white taken in poor light. Can you repeat this Gary or was it just a flash in the pan?! Patch must be the fittest dog in the UK the amount of exercise he gets!
class mate class
