You are too modest Lillian. Both are lovely shots and my favourite has to be that butterfly. Such a little beauty sitting on that plant. Mooira

Wow Lilian it is a beautiful sunset, great light and colours....and the butterfly is delightful, what beautiful markings it has. Like me you prefer to stick to your comfort zone....think you should branch out, they are good
22 Jan 2014 9:22AM
Both very good pictures.
Was hoping someone would identify the butterfly.

The Swedish Sunset is superb and all the elements are there for all to see, and the fluterby well one of the best I have seen.

Impossible to compare a sunset with a butterfly! But two great images, Lillian, and though the butterfly doesn't fill the frame, it's beautifully captured and sharp. Not only a super sunset in V1, but you've got some lovley reflections, too SmileSmile

A beautiful and serene scene Lillian, such wonderful refections and calm mood. There is nothing wrong with your landscapes at all if this image is anything to go by. As for butterflies I'm happy to give you some tips if you are in Gloucestershire this spring and summerSmile

I like the way you have used the light in V1, to provide reflections and shadows.
The butterfly is also good, lovely colours and good detail.
Cannot see anything wrong with either, Lillian Smile

Oh I nearly missed these...2 stunning images Lillian, the reflections in V1 are amazing..And the Owl butterfly is one of the best I have seen on this site...just beautiful..

Lovely quality of light and warm evening pastels on the landscape, Lillian. v2 is sharp and detailed and with the original file size you've got plenty to play around with a crop.

Amazing reflections, Lillian. Razor sharp and beautifully exposed capture of the butterfly too! Dave is right about the crop, if V2 is uncropped.
