A wonderful capture, beautiful detail and colours.
WOW What a shot ..... lovely ..
Excellent capture of a beauty.
Beautiful,lambent and excellent detail.
wow,this is beautiful, just perfect, well done, great frame
wonderful detail,good capture.
I think letterbox was introduced to film because with having two eyes aligned horizontally we view things more in a horizontal plane than vertical or square, so a greater width than height is often a better choice. Certainly seems to work here.
A superb shot, well composed and presented with good use of narrow DOF to blur background. The pink flowers compliment the background green well. click
Wow, what a stunning shot, detail and color are superb! I must say that the way you chose to present the shot is brilliant, another great shot to add to your collection! Spot on! Click!!!

Framing does work. As always the picture is the most important and it's a cracker.
P.S. had to take my 150mm back...compatibility problems with camera and autofocus was very slow. Now with canon 100mm
Yes it works....beautifully,
Wonderful clarity and dof control, excellent colour and detail. Well done Su, a real beauty.

Hi Su,Your butterfly is absolutely spot on and the pink flower just compliments it so well.The background brings out both the butterfly and flower perfectly.Great detail,lighting,dof and all that technical stuff.Brilliantly Magical composition!!!!Take care.Ann
Absolutely stunning. This is spot on.
Stunning and beautiful! Yes framing really works for me!
Works a treat, love the colours of this one ;0)
Congratulations on your HC Award Su, well deserved. :0)
I think it worked so well I stole the idea for my upload, sorry hope you dont mind!?
The framing and presentation is good but its the image that takes centre stage for me. I can see why Pete gave it an HC, it has a lovely composition, the subject is pin sharp and the colours combine nicely with the flower.
Was it taken in the wild?
