About the Image(s)

I saw several of these Northern Crescent butterfly enjoying nectar from the daisies blooming in a meadow. I cropped the original image and used topaz DeNoise to reduce noise.

Nikon D500: 300mm, f/6.3, 1/1000s, ISO 160

Sarita, it's a very nice image, but I feel it could be sharpened a little. I put it through Topaz Sharpen. I feel you need a little more space on the bottom, as you have cut off some of the flower. I love the color of the butterfly and its shadow on the flower   Posted: 05/03/2021 15:56:17

I agree with Stuart, and I thought I'd take a look at how the image feels with a little more space on the bottom, some sharpening, and more contrast and saturation in the butterfly. Finally, for the fun of it, I thought I'd see how it feels with the butterfly facing to the right and then cropping a little behind the reoriented butterfly. Pardon me for messing so much with your image, but I like it so much I couldn't resist. I'm guessing that you shot this from about 10 feet away, which would give a depth of field about an inch. You might have been better off at ISO 1000 or more and f/16.   Posted: 05/04/2021 13:44:26
