The detail and colours in this image are great.

Personally, I like your outer border, but think the two inner ones detract from the main subject.

Good composition here with the butterfly on a diagonal. I don't know what kind it is - I've only seen a cpouple of white ones this "summer"....

Lovley shot with great colour, but not sure about the boarder's just a bit OTT, but a great shot.

Beautiful, seasonal shot. I like the general idea of the presentation but find the inner, lighter border a bit distracting. Maybe if it was moved outwards a bit?

Really like the inner framing, looks as if the butterfly just landed on top of a different shot Smile
