There are no bugs here... it's way too cold! So, I had to use a fake one.... You can tell it's fake, so I probably won't do too well. I wish it was advanced editing so I could fix it to look more realistic. Oh well! :)


Thank you so much everyone for the top 10 finish! I didn't think it would do this well!!! But, I'm sure glad it did! :)

great shot - very peaceful with the flowers and the sky. I think a little more contrast might help it out a bit.

Amazing shot. I really like all the detail you have in this shot, and the simple background really helps the butterfly pop out at the viewer.
04/22/2007 09:08:14 AM
wow.. the colors of the butterfly really stand out against the light colors of the flowers and sky. THis is a good pic! you can see every detail of the wings!

Beautiful. Has a larger than life feel to it.

A tad too brightly in all. Otherwise nice composition! Like the sky in the background! - 7 -

This is very pretty

Nice color contrast.
04/19/2007 12:45:18 PM
Very flattering!

The glowy feeling surrounding the butterfly is very nice. The white flowers and clouds makes the butterfly stand out.

Nice lighting and composition

Pretty, refreshing, clean, spring-like, summer day.

10, because of the above and because butterflies are personal symbols to me.

Nice shot. The flat lighting from the flash keeps this from being a 9.

I wish I could take pictures like this during the min editing challenge! Another perfect picture! 10

I had WAY too much fun with the overprocessed comment :)! Most fun I've had on dpc! Watching everybody in the forums talk about the comment.

Nicely lit. I like the "looking up" perspective too.
04/17/2007 05:05:11 PM
Beautiful! One of my favorites in this challenge

Beautiful capture! *9*

very nice capture.
04/17/2007 12:15:38 AM
i like the peacefulness of this scene, very well done 9

Particularly lovely for a minimal editing challenge. I love the softness and light of the daisies and sky. With more editing, the contrast and color in the butterfly can be increased to make this image spectacular.
04/16/2007 07:57:35 PM
Very beautiful. Great perspective and focus. Love the clouds.
04/16/2007 04:59:46 PM
Not sure - this looks a little posed...it IS very beautiful,crisp, well composed,focused and so on...it appears staged. Will look this up again out of interest after results are out.
04/16/2007 03:12:13 PM
this is too perfect, looks like the cover of a greeting card or something. bumping up, your welcom
04/16/2007 01:51:56 PM
Stunning and beautiful. I can't believe it's not editted! Great job!!!
04/16/2007 01:40:28 PM
Lovely colours. Is that butterfly real? It doesn't look real to me (not that there's anything wrong with that). If it is not real I would have positioned it more on an angle. If it is real, you could have taken the photo more on an angle. It just seems too straight on for me.
04/16/2007 01:06:11 PM
well composed, good focus. overall a bit too pale
04/16/2007 11:00:21 AM
This is very pretty. I love the angle you shot from so that the sky is the BG.
