Common Blue Loveheart

By discreetphoton  
A pair of Common Blues doing what comes naturally. 3 versions in all.
I prefer 2 for the detail, but I realise that the background's not for everyone.

Hand-held again.

Lighting info:
Manual, centre-weighted metering, +1EV
1/250s as a base.
Master SB-900 set to -3EV, 2x SB-R200's set to -1.7EV

I prefer V1 simply because of the clean background, but all 3 images are very good.
