Award Shortlist   


By PhilG_DPAGB  
I'm fast filling up my hard drive with what I feel are lovely butterfly pictures - This was taken last Thursday evening Nr Winchester - Attempting something a little different I tried this one slightly backlit - I feel it works well with rim lighting and reasonably burn out free - would appreciate you comments - good or bad. Phil.

Like the light on the edge of the wings, and a good clean b/g isolating the butterfly.
Nice work.

Good detail, excellent background, composition good, exposure on the flower just a little over making the highlights a bit hot, easily fixable in PS.

Thanks for the I D on my pic. Spent about two and a half hours on Portland and couldn't get anything to stop for more than two seconds . Plenty of blurred shots and very bad angles .
The Tiger was at Radipole and even when it posed for me I still messed up.
