About the Image(s)

Went to a local park to try out the Canon EOS R to see my thought on that camera. Lucked out with lots of butterflies and hummingbird to photograph. This was one of the shots. Just did basic editing.

Beautiful! Good colors and detail in the butterfly. The blurred B/G leads the eye into the subject. This would be nice on a calendar...   Posted: 10/12/2019 10:27:02

I wasn't sure I liked the backward-leaning aspect of the butterfly, so I tried rotating it. That didn't really work at all. I really like the contrasting colors of the wing and the flowers. I'm not sure what made the center swath of the background appear white; looks like it something was cloned over. But I think your handling of the depth of field to get the entire butterfly and just enough flowers in focus is spot on.   Posted: 10/12/2019 19:39:56

Actually there were white flowers back there. I didn't realize the interesting effect they had until you mentioned it.   Posted: 10/12/2019 22:22:18
