About the Image(s)

This Monarch butterfly came from a chrysalis that came from a caterpillar in my butterfly garden.

My adjustments included increasing black point, contrast, and sharpening.

Beautiful butterfly caught at just the right moment. Looks sharp with nice color. The green background might be slightly distracting which could have been eliminated by taking the image at a different angle.   Posted: 11/23/2020 15:06:37

A great capture Marianne. The background is nicely blurred to put the focus on the butterfly and what she/he is up to. The black in the butterfly really makes it stand out against the orange/mustard barrel.The butterfly is also nicely positioned within the photo.   Posted: 11/28/2020 02:12:30

This is a really good shot the details in the column, the butterfly and the cocoon are spot on. I agree with Alec the background is distracting with the bright spots and whatever that blue thing is on the bottom right. A different angle to remove the distractions would improve what is all ready a great shot.   Posted: 11/28/2020 10:29:59

I like this Marianne, subject is capture well with no distracting elements. Could probably edit a bit more to increase overall impact but still a great view of nature at work.   Posted: 11/28/2020 11:19:13
