  • Red Head

    It looks like a Semperi Swallowtail Butterfly, also called the Batwing Swallowtail. A beautiful butterfly, brilliantly caught!

  • An interesting solution

    I quite like the fact they've hidden an ugly little office/public loo by using an old photo of how the area used to be - what a brilliant idea!

  • This little piggy stayed at home...

    I think Red River Hogs (from Africa) are quite a pretty pigs, I love their ears. You've caught this one beautifully.

    Hi Raff, welcome to EPZ! Smile

    A lovely photo to start off your portfolio with. As you've ticked the 'Allow Modification' box I've had a bit of a play with it.

    I felt the image was a little flat, so the first thing I did was to take it into Photoshop Elements 9 and adjust the 'Contrast/Lighting'. I also gave it a 'crop' (I felt the wall area on the left was quite 'empty' and didn't add to the beauty of your model) and a slight 'sharpen'.

    I also used the 'Heal' tool and removed a few eye catching 'bits' (there was a twig in the foreground and a pale post in the background). All these adjustments were minor, but I think there has been an improvement - I hope you think so too! Smile

  • Atlas Moth

    One of the most stunning of moths - caught brilliantly!
    • 24 Apr 2017 7:58AM
  • Flowers

    Primroses are so pretty, you've captured this group beautifully.

    I quite like the fact you've kept back and given the group some 'empty' space around them. I think I may have done a little careful 'gardening' before I'd taken the photo - removing the odd twig, blade of grass and pine needle (it's so much easier to tidy up before the photograph is taken, rather then in post processing). Smile

  • Butterfly

    Beautifully caught. I may have cropped just a little closer to the butterfly, but that is a minor point and probably just me! Smile
