unfortunately, the butterfly was actually dead, and I placed him in that position. I would probably have to wait a lifetime to get one to actually land there. Sky was cloudy which allowed me to expose a little longer for misty falls in back. Opened in raw, and lightened to 1.5. Saturated. Transfered to photoshop. Cropped. Dodged his face a little, burned the moss and wings. Changed image size. Saturated a little more. Filter/sharpen. Save for web. Thats it.

I love the orange and green colors here. It's more of a lime green and light orange. The out-of-focus waterfall in the background give this a little bit more oomph than just an ordinary "butterfly" image. Nice job with DOF too. -BB

PS. I wonder if anybody else will comment on the waterfall?...

5 - Nice 'little scene', nice backdrop - good potential - like to be able to discern the details in the face more - perhaps the contrast is a touch too strong, not sure.
