About the Image(s)

I was taken by the circles throughout the entire image...on the butterfly and the flowers. So while it may appear confusing at first, I think it tells a nice story. Cropped a lot to get in close and worked over to bring out colors on the wings. The white flowers were really white so I toned them down as much as I thought I could.

Good job. I love the color of the butterfly on the white. Maybe crop a bit more on the left?   Posted: 11/05/2020 10:40:10

I agree with Sharon. Perhaps a bit too much white. The butterfly is beautiful and well done. Should be more dominate part of the image.   Posted: 11/05/2020 18:05:20

Excellent image of the butterfly against the white flowers. Though they seem to pull me away from the butterfly. I was trying to tone the white down a bit in my edit with out effecting the butterfly and just decided to go with the vignette instead.   Posted: 11/18/2020 15:23:37

It is very happy seeing well-balance lighting from soft to hard across the flowers and the power of details in butterfly. My eyes can not be removed from the butterfly and its surrounding light. As for me, no need to adjust.   Posted: 11/21/2020 19:14:49

This is stunning. The contrast of the dark butterfly against the sea of white totally works. The repetition of the circles also work. I don't think I would do anything to change it. If anything, maybe crop a smidge off the left, but not a big deal.   Posted: 11/24/2020 17:02:14

At first glance I am taken by all the white but then I have no desire to move off of the butterfly.

I you do any cropping, I would get rid of the dark areas close to the butterfly.   Posted: 11/24/2020 17:48:08
