To me this is a very good rendition of the butterflies and their immediate surroundings. The one thing that I would like to see as an improvement is the removal of the large light patch to the bottom left. It is very much an 'eye-catcher' when I feel we should be looking at your main subject, which in effect is two subjects which makes one think a bit more about composition.

One answer to this is one of my favourite aspect ratios a square crop. That removes the said patch and also gives one the opportunity to place both insects in a prominent location. I will upload a mod to show you what I mean but of course the crop makes the 600px reduce somewhat and I will have to increase the size which will downgrade the quality and also viewability quite a lot.

Given your FL of 200mm I would perhaps have been tempted to use a smaller aperture, f8 which will still render the background out of focus, but will give you a better cahnce given the slightly deeper DoF. However what you have at f5.6 seems fine and your shutter speed is more than good enough for the 200mm used.

A charming capture of the butterflies coupling, Madhu, and your composition is nice, with space on the left, but your frame takes up a large portion of the image size, and the image itself is only just under 600 pixels on the largest side, even when viewed in the large version. It is therefore difficult to assess its quality. Zooming in, it looks as if you have fairly good detail on the butterflies, but quite a bit of noise in the background, probably due to the high ISO setting.
The large white blob in the left of the background distracts the eye from your subjects, and I have cloned this out in my modification. I also adjusted levels and sharpened, then softened the background. There were quite a few artefacts surrounding the butterflies, so I cloned these out for a cleaner finish. The only reason I added a simple frame was to increase the size for upload acceptability.

Very nice. I like the frame, its very well done. Making the image itself small has one advantage, - it disguises noise!


You mention you warmed the white balance, - but it still look too cool to me, - but I really not familiar with this butterfly, so I could be wrong.

The butterflies are nicely place in the frame, the angled leaf looks good.

The specular highlight on the right could be removed, or you can tone it down, fill the lighter areas in with some of the outer colour, - I personally like the splash of yellow in a sea of green.


I did load a mod, - touched only the colour balance.


regards


Willie

The big improvement from yesterday's is the removal of top leaf
and yes I too would clone out the white bit on the left.
Essentially still a very appealing image.

I suppose you have seen the Woody Allen film, Manhattan, where they have a discussion at a party about the 'wrong kind of orgasm'? I think this is the right kind. Excellent shot.
