Shot of a Monic Butterfly around at my mates with his early 1900s house in the background, had alot of fun with this shot adding saturation and contrast to bring out the differnt colours

::: Greetings from Critique Club :::

Hi, as requested, here is an indepth critique of your submission.

First Impression - the most important one:
Very nice shot. Unfortunate that the butterfly isn't in focus. But that would be almost impossible seeing that it is so close to the camera.

It's decent. The chimney is crowding the top of the frame a bit and the satelite dish to the right kinda hurts the feeling of the photo.

I'm having a hard time deciding if the subject is the building or the butterfly. In either case, I think I'd rather the butterfly be in focus than the building.

Technical (Color, focus, and light):
All good.

To grow its vote?:
I really think the focus is n the wrong subject. Had they been inverted this photo would have scored much higher IMO.

Lovely shot overall. Good work and nice capture.

Hope to see more from you soon,

Very pretty, but I think the butterfly is kind of soft focus.

It's hard to get a big DOF with the fast shutter speed required for this shot. It may have looked better going for focus on the butterfly and going for soft focus on the house. It's still pretty good and the composition of the house, path and lawn is good.

I love the cottage! The blurred butterfly in the foreground is a major distraction for me and I wish it wasn't there. 6

Capturing that butterfly made your photo go from nice to awesome. I really like the idea you are portraying here.
