Very good detail and colour, and quite well isolated from the background.

Beautiful butterfly, Goutham. The colors are so vivid. The black and orange make a great contrast against the great OOF background. Very sharp details and excellent POV. TFS. : )

the shot is not bad,
for the photo I think it would be nice for the composition to turn the shot 45 degrees to the right, the pov is nice but not perfect, the dof is perfect, very good job.

Hi, Goutham:
This is a beautiful butterfly, and your exposure and DOF are spot on. I would agree that a more angled composition would be an improvement, though (see WS), and you seem to have some sensor dirt spots showing (just below left wingtip, just below the twig on the right) - a nuisance, aren't they? ;)
Best wishes, Nigel.

Hi Goutham

What a beauty! Lovely saturation of colour.
Well composed. Excellent POV with clear sharp details. Nice work. :-)

Hi Goutham,
it's so wonderful, I love the colours and the wonderful contrast with 3D-effect.
The colours are so brilliant, excellent shot, thanks

Hi Goutham,
A very nice shot, great detail and the colours are excellent, and the background is nicely defocused.

bon BG aussi.

Once again a superb pic Goutham!!
Keep it up!!


Hi Goutham,
Great exposure! The colors are very vivid and beautiful. Nice sharp detail. Nice isolated backround. Looks great!
Will have to revisit for pts.

Superb POV, DOF, sharpness and colours, Goutham. Each of your shots is an improvement over the others in terms of both technical and aesthetic excellence.

Superb shot Goutham.

Well placed in the frame, good composition with good OOF background. Great sharp details.
Beautiful subject.

Hi Goutham
Very pretty and interesting resting pose, quite unusual for a day active butterfly.
That Tawny Coaster seems to be a female waiting for an amorous encounter.
Beautiful light from a very good angle, shaping the butterfly in an excellent way.
Very good contribution.
Thank you! Best regards,

Big Smile.
