I love the yellow sulfur butterflies and the tan looking background. This has great contrast. I feel like the foreground and the background is distracting. I used content aware fill to take out the black item in the background and the soft foreground. I also used the clone tool to take out some of the white spots in the background. I love the three butterflies positions.   Posted: 09/07/2021 20:09:14

Good catch Leo. You nailed the focus on the three butterflies and I think the water drop on the left one is a nice addition. Your depth of field is very slim in the shot and as Linda mentioned the foreground does catch our attention. You might just darken it a bit to tone it down.
I like the shot of the three of them, but an alternative would be to crop the one on the right out giving us a look at just the two "looking" at each other.   Posted: 09/11/2021 07:48:23

An odd number is usually the best! Three works for me! I like the color and exposure. I agree with getting rid of the dark area back left. There is a really large area right front that isn't helping this image. Either darked or warp it out.   Posted: 09/11/2021 17:30:32

Beautiful and so delicate. I like what LInda and Mark have done and really can't add anything more.   Posted: 09/11/2021 18:34:43

I agree that this is a beautiful delicate picture. I agree with Bruce mentioning the water drop and Linda's corrections and Mark mentioning the odd number being better than 2. You could not have posed them better. I also think the angle gives the photo a more dynamic look. I would put this on the wall.   Posted: 09/12/2021 12:56:12

I love the butterflies themselves as well as the depth of field. Though I feel the blurring of the DOF at the foreground is a bit of a distraction and I'd like it more if the butterflies were closer to the bottom of the frame and straight across.   Posted: 09/15/2021 10:55:33
