Butterfly Up Close by WeeGeordieLass

Butterfly Up Close

A beautiful portrait - well worth your perseverance!

Looking for a snack

A German Wasp (Vespula germanica) - we can tell by the three dots on its face! Smile Brilliantly caught, though I didn't know they could read! Smile

Clouds by IshanPathak

Clouds

The cloud formations are interesting and you've caught them brilliantly.

But, I think your post processing has darkened the image quite a lot (perhaps too much).

To clone out the wire I zoomed right in to your image and used the 'Clone' tool at 2 or 3 pixels, clicking for a new selection every time the colours changed. After I had cloned out the whole wire I made the clone tool larger and, choosing similar colours, randomly made new clouds to hide where the line was. Smile

As you had already processed this image I didn't touch anything else! Smile

Surfer! by emma101

Surfer!

A brilliant capture, the wave and its surfer have been caught beautifully sharp.

An improvement may have been to have a little more room on the left for the surfer to 'move into'. Is this a crop? If so then that is easily rectified! Smile

He's a handsome chap! It looks quite rough on the water. I really like the format you've chosen.

drop by Georgerees123

drop

Hi George, welcome to EPZ! Smile

This is a brilliant image to start off your portfolio - I like how you've composed the image and focused on the drop. If you have a post processing programme, I think an improvement may have been to 'clean up' the image (remove some of the little specks).

I hope you enjoy your time with us, if you have any questions or problems don't be afraid to ask! Smile I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Hanging moss by Pirates89

Hanging moss

You have focused on the moss brilliantly, it's lovely and sharp and isolated from its surroundings. I think had the moss been wet it would have added an extra sparkle, but that's a minor point! Smile

Butterfly, Variants by IshanPathak

Butterfly, Variants

A gorgeous group of images! My favourites are Versions 1, 3 and 5 (especially number 3!!). The colours and details are wonderful.

I think Version 2 is a little over processed (it looks quite 'blue') and an improvement would have been to have the flower 'looking' into the image, rather then out - but that is a minor point! Smile

Edit: Versions 6 & 7 are lovely too!! (You have been busy!)

Butterfly, Again! by IshanPathak

Butterfly, Again!

A beautiful capture (of another butterfly we don't get in the UK!).

You've processed it well, the vignetting is a lot more subtle (which is brilliant), though as you say, the colours are just a little too strong for me (others will say the colours are perfect!). The details you've captured on the butterfly are brilliant - did you take other photographs at different angles, or did it only settle for one pose? Smile If you could have taken a step to the left and had the flower a little more 'face on' it would have made another lovely shot!

I really like your choice of crop and format, well done Ishan! Smile

Sawfly (Xiphydria camelus) by jasonrwl

Sawfly (Xiphydria camelus)

I think it's a Sawfly (Xiphydria camelus), the black spike at the back is an ovipositor.

A brilliant capture, the details are lovely! Smile

Moo.. by PaulPhotography

Moo..

Beautifully caught.

A shame she didn't wander just a little forward, so you could avoid the background clutter - but that can be replaced if you have a post processing programme. Smile

Bee-fly.*

Oh..........Wow!

Perfection!

I am so envious - you've caught the insect perfectly against the ideal background!!

Red , red and shining by kuipje

Red , red and shining

For me, I could see two images here - one with just a single tulip and one with the group of three.

Because you've ticked the mod box, I thought I'd have a go at a triptych (flipping the single tulip to balance the end result). I'm still a little clumsy with Photoshop, but I hope you like the final result. Smile

Hi James, great to see you uploading again!

This is a gorgeous shot, I love the expression you've caught - the colour of its eyes are beautiful!

Sky.. by PaulPhotography

Sky..

The vignetting around the edge makes this image look quite mysterious and almost 'threatening'!
(Be very careful when photographing the sun, it can damage not only your eyes but the camera!)

Wave Crash by emma101

Wave Crash

This makes a wonderful abstract image - the water looks lovely and clean! Smile

Beauty again by IshanPathak

Beauty again

I think it's a Common Mormon (female) - gorgeous colours!

I wouldn't worry about the background for the moment (I can see why you are using vignetting (shadows) around the edge, but you need to be careful not to overbear the subject). I think the butterfly must be quickly flapping its wings as it feeds (we can see some movement blur), to avoid getting blur I think your shutter speed needs to be slightly faster.

My favourite is version 3, where we can see the colours and markings beautifully.

Archway of trees by Bubblegum

Archway of trees

This is a beautiful image (I could spend hours amongst those flowers, looking for bugs and butterflies!). Your ipod has coped brilliantly with the bright sunshine and deep shadows.
