thank you for the great comments and votes. this came out as I wanted.. I had to wait for 15-20 mins before a butterfly sat on this particular flower, but I think it was worth that wait :)

One of the better butterfly shot submitted for this challenge. The background compliments the shot very well.

This gets a 10 from me based on the color contrasts and tones. Even the flares are muted enough to be pleasing.

There are people who spend their entire lives shooting butterflies and never get an image as amazing as this. If you ever meet one of them, show a little compassion and hide this photo. 10

Love the bright vivid colors in this image!

WOW!!! Great composition. Clarity and dof are perfect. THe only thing I do not like is the thick white border - just a matter of opinion. Good job.

beautiful orange flower petals
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 05:30:21 PM
border seems a little too wide for this narrow image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 04:49:54 PM
Good color and clarity!! I think it would be stunning with an even slightly closer shot of the butterfly. But I'm very glad you left some green at the top as it offsets the flower and insect very well. Good composition.

My immediate reaction - ooh yes! A lovely capture, but if I was to try and improve on this I would have preferred the sharp focus on the wings as opposed to the flower but this is still a very appealing study - well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great photo. Love the colors on this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This image kicks significant arse. Beautifully composed and colours manificient. The slightly soft wing doesn't bother me, seems to add to the depth. Well done.

Nice contrast of foreground object colours to background colours. Background also blurred to just the right extent.

Ah, properly competent photography - I have no doubt this has become exactly what you wanted. Love the tonality, the bokeh, composition, etc. etc. I would wish only for something a little more thought-provoking than a butterfly on a flower, to make it 'beautiful' rather than simply 'pretty', if you like. But this must surely score well.

Easily the best butterfly/flower shot in the challenge IMO. However it´s not very original and frankly I find it a bit boring but I love the saturation, bokeh, sharpness and contrast in this shot, technically it´s very well done. I gave it an 8.

Beautiful colors

This is a stunning shot! I wish we had so colorful butterflies in my country;-) It is crystal clear where it should and out of focus where it should. Well done!
