Two gorgeous shots.

I think I prefer version 2 today - the butterfly is nearly the 'right way up'. I don't know why, but (and of course this is just my opinion) I always think it's easier on the eye when the butterfly is the right way up. I think had version one been rotated 90deg clockwise I would have preferred version 1. Smile

Both images so well captured for detail and colour with V 2 for just having the edge b/o the orientation of the insect and perch within the frame, Carol.

I think I marginally prefer V2 but it's close. Both are beautifully poised and have a soft, sunlit gentleness in the light and tones.
26 Sep 2012 9:25AM
Super detail. V2 gets my vote.

Morning Carol. Don't mind the orientation in v1, I never know which way up I am most of the time anyway!! v2 I prefer though, for the diagonal composition and the slightly darker background. Two fine images.

Love both Carol excellent light and clarity, a big shortage of these insects in Wales this year.

I am a bit worried about Nathan! I know he has not been well and I see he has been removed from the site, does any one know if he is all right! if you do know please put our minds at rest.
