About the Image(s)

I had an image with the full zinnia, but accidentally deleted itThiszinnia had some petals clipped. The solution seemed to me to clip them all and concentrate on the skipper butterfly.
Cropped and used glamor glow and HDR in Snapseed and then Paintersque 1. for the final image.

I like your image Dick and the close cropping helped keep the emphasis on the butterfly and flower. Wonderful colors and you caught the butterfly in an excellent position. Artistic renderings always add to the uniqueness of the image.   Posted: 08/02/2020 08:27:26

First, I hope I got the description correct. Very strong focus that remains sharp despite the cropping. What really caught my eye was the flower and butterfly angles to the corners. This really makes for a stronger composition. I'm curious how many photos you took in order to capture this sharp image. Nicely done.   Posted: 08/04/2020 14:42:58
