Getting Old Now.

By Perry_95
This butterfly is obviously getting old, which i think in butterfly terms is only a week or two, and its wings are ragged at the edges. Little bit of photoshop, lightened up the three corners excluding the top right because i felt the eye was drawn too much towards the top right. I also used the sharpening brush and just on around 25% went around the edges, the eyes and the body (not wings)

F-stop - f/4.5
Exposure time - 1/100 sec.
ISO speed - ISO-400
Exposure bias - 0 step
Focal length - 125mm
35mm focal lenght - 187 (dont know what this means)

Poor tatty little Owl Butterfly! (They don't last so long in a hothouse, because their wings keep hitting the glass and there are usually a lot of plants about). You've coped very well with the dimpsy light.

Lovely shot! Beautiful butterfly even with tatty wings...
