Orchid and Butterfly

By quickordead
This is one of a series that was taken at a butterfly park in Rettendon. A piece of white mount board was used as a background for this and the other shots in this series. I also produced these as a negative image and I'll upload it later to show the effect.

It was shot at 16mm f3.5 for 1/60 second.

I made a levels adjustment to highlight the white background with a layermask so as not to burn out the forground image.

Beautifully arranged in the frame, and your white card certainly shows up the subjects so nicely as well as giving some reflected back lighting.
