About the Image(s)

This was taken at a garden off the Harlem River in Manhattan. It mostly required patience waiting for the butterfly to stay still long enough. Afterwards, it was simply cropped and darkened a bit.

I really like the image. I took the opportunity to work it a bit. I cropped about a third off the top and right. That got rid of the bright green in the right lower background. I then darkened the white a bit as well as the background. This helped accentuate the near foliage. I then used a yellow dodge brush to lighten the yellow in the butterfly plus some of the foliage and a blue dodge to the lower part of the butterfly wings.   Posted: 11/10/2019 18:55:35
