This was another butterfly taken at St.Albans butterfly farm.It can be hard to take a picture that are really clear owing to the heat and humidity.Still worth a visit.They also have a lot of ground outside so you can take flowers and other projects are going on.Thank you so much for all your comments on my last picture.

10 Feb 2011 - 5:14 PMConstructive Critique!This comment was flagged as constructive critique! 

Hi Linda, although you have some lovely detail it's cropped far too close particularly on the LH side. You need to leave room for the butterfly to look into when it's in this position. Your previous upload was fine being central in the frame but as this is a profile shot the composition needs to be approached rather differently. I'm surprised no one has mentioned this already as it's possibly one of the most basic elements of composition for wildlife in general. My comment is meant to help here and no offence meant in any respect.
Regards,
Geoff.

Awesome work. The soft background palette of colors contrasts perfectly with the the butterfly. Perfect razor sharp macro and the color saturation is right on the money. Just a wonderful and beautiful image.

BTW, thank you for your comments critique on my re-work of First Snow, LR4 has so many tools to help bring out the hidden qualities that get missed or overlooked.
