Wonderful colors!

John, I guessed that this was yours. I gave it a 10 before I guessed though. It's a very beautiful photo. I love the vibrant colors against the almost non-color of the moth. Once again...beautiful job. :) karen

Not a lot of texture BUT absolutely incredible colors and composition! I love it.

Hmm... i wonder what happened to my detail line... should have been 'butterfly exhibit'.. lol
07/29/2002 10:58:00 AM

07/29/2002 10:21:00 AM

Unbelievably beautiful color and composition. Texture?
07/28/2002 09:56:00 AM
This is very nice and I like it a lot. I don't really see Texture as the feature here though. Loosely defined everything has some texture but for a texture challenge I think that texture needs to be very evident and not implied. THis image is beautifully exposed though. I really like it.

Beautiful photograph. I love the composition, colors, and subject is great for texture (some voters might be asking where's the texture?.....I remember the feel of a butterfly's wings...and the powder that rubs off on your fingers). My favorite of the week -- great! LanSnake 10

this is a great shot. good colors, good dof, great composition. i hope you don't get too many people saying that you don't show enough texture, because I think you do. and you can quote me on that. excellent photo.
07/26/2002 12:46:00 PM
Taboo in all sorts of ways, but I'm still giving you a 10 because I can just FEEL the butterfly's wings :-) 10 nards656

Lovely photo.
07/26/2002 09:34:00 AM
the perfect picture 10!!!! I had to come back and look at your picture again. I love it! Are you a professional photographer? Beautiful subject beautiful job.
07/25/2002 11:55:00 PM
the colors on this are very saturated which adds to the compellingness of the image. good dof control. looks like you used just the right amount of unsharp mask. no complaints except for the subject matter, which isn't your most interesting :) .. 9 .. mag 99

Beautiful picture, a little weak on the challenge, but I love it anyway.
07/25/2002 07:58:00 PM
(I thought I had commented this shot!) VERY NICE!!! Was this in your garden, a park or a Butterfly House? I love going to Butterfly Houses!!! I have a few nice butterfly shots, but this is truly grand. I started this shot out as a 9, but I really can't see anything "bad" to mark it down even that much. Perfect 10, Swash

thats beautiful..great colors and texture.
07/22/2002 11:51:00 AM
great shot, lovely colour not sure about the texture content though
07/22/2002 11:46:00 AM
Lovely image. Like the subdued colors of the insect and the strong orange of the flowers right behind it. What distracts me a little is the "apple" like shape top right next to the insect.
07/22/2002 10:50:00 AM
Excellent photo. Nice colors and very sharp. mj 10
07/22/2002 10:06:00 AM
Superb detail, DOF, composure, etc -- very well done.
07/22/2002 09:14:00 AM
This is beautiful! Perhaps a little less background for a texture challengeif one was being picky! But as a photograph I wouldn't change it!
07/22/2002 12:38:00 AM
excellent shot. the strong white horizontal in the upper left is distracting, buts thats the only thing i would change. ~ mcmurma
