Beautiful beautiful colour/tones - great shot
Superb image, love it.
such a beauty! Superb. click!
Lovely capture Tim, the background tones compliment nicely.
Lovely macro, good detail. Well done.
Simply beautiful, The subtly of the colours is outstanding
Very sharp and detailed close-up, and as Terry said, the background compliments the subject well. Perhaps a touch more DOF would have its front leg and tips of the antennae in focus.
just bloody damn good
Really beautiful, superb detail and colours, I'm envious! . . . . . . . lol
Superb butterfly shot - jumps out of the page.
S'a beauty. click
If Kit-M says it is - then it is.
just lovely ..cant say any more ..click
Very Beautiful. Great complementary colour of the background and a well detail subject.
Excellent colours & texture.
Fantastic shot, bravo !!
And a superb portfolio.
knew it would well done on the ec ..stuart
Very well deserved EC.
Nice shot, great colours. Congrats on the EC. Seems as though a lot of the 'macro' people on here have got the 300D, including me :0)
OH YES,WELL DONE,CONGRATULATION REALLY DESERVED!!!
I would pick today to put an insect in! This wins on many fronts - colour, focus isolation of subject etc. A well deserved EC and a click from me!
Oh...my...G..! I am lost for words... can't believe what I am seeing...so I will just keep reading for a while...
Thank you all immensely! Deeply!
ok enough ec's for a while!! congratulations. nice work. i love the colours in this. gorgeous.
Maybe just a bit more depth of field for perfection. Certainly a beautiful photograph.
Wonderful detail and sublime colours.
Beautiful, well done on EC
Very nice shot. click
This is indeed a great photograph and you should be very proud of it.
A little more DoF would be nice but it really doesn't matter too much as the salient parts are in clear and sharp focus and in any event, more DoF might have started to bring som eof the background elements into view which would have been a pity.
Might I suggest you clone or replace the slightly lighter diagonal area to the top right so that it blends in with the rest of the background (can you see where I mean?).
Barrie, normally I would have cloned out that top corner in a flash, but on this occasion I liked the mood that it added, giving the the natural setting of being among the wheat. If I went ahead with the clone it might look a little flat. But your suggestion is certainly an option and well spotted!
I agree with you about the DoF, I like the softer edges obtained using this close up lens combination. While the 100 and 180mm Macros are far superior lenses for edge to edge sharpness, it can be fun playing with the effect of imperfect DoF in a picture.
Love it Tim, just perfect!
A beautifully warm image Tim :o)
Great detail and color theme. Great Click.
A well deserved EC. A lovely, light and airy feel to this. It matches the subject very well.
Superb! It's been said above.
Fantastic photo. Very Well done
Superb shot! Steve.
Trust me to put a butterfly in today
Ah well....there's always tomorrows
This is a stunner. 100% Perfect
A breathtaking image, Tim. Very well done
This is fantastic Tim, I'm pleased to see you work getting some recognition.
One of the most wonderful picture I've ever seen. Wonder how long it took to get it right. Great work.
Congratulations on your well deserved EC. Fantastic colours and a beautiful background to this exquisite close up of this Small Copper on corn . I love it . A great favourite .Ha !! I was the 60th )
Superb - after 60 clicks I'm not sure there are any more words left in the book to say how great this is- so I'll just say I agree with everything above.
Butterfly pictures just don't get any better!
