Hi Luciano,
Nicely composed image, spectacular enough. :-) However, I feel that some small technical issues might be amended (explained at the workshop), I mean the raw material's good, but post-procession was not fully done. Anyway, I hope you'll like my version also.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hello Jose,
Wish your pictures would encourage other 😉;not only writing comments, but also getting such perfect dreamy background. To be a good photographer, it's essential to know the secret of getting perfect POV and BACKGROUND.
Beautiful butterfly and very good details. Well controlled light even on yellow petals. Good work.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and keep shooting,
Srikumar

Hello Pierre,
I like your Pigion picture. Not great background or POV, but quite well. Ground level shot would have been better. Beautiful light on grasses. Good details and colour.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Marius,
That's the quality! It's an easy task(not for all 😉) to capture a flying bird or insect, but it's not an easy task to capture an insect or bird with perfect POV and composition.Here is the main difference I can see in your shot. Well use of flash and perfect composition. Details are great, even I can see its big eye!

Credit goes to you for perfect POV with perfect composition. In one word "Visual impact".
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and enjoy photography,
Srikumar

Hi Dietrich,
That's class again, great compo, crystal clear photo with the most perfect shutter speed and nice shallow DoF. Very interesting and educative note as well. Great work, congratulations!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hello Marius,
I like this 'Clouded Yellow' species due to its colour. Excellent background and very well details. With due respect, a few things I don't like here in this picture :
(1) Although stunning background, but the line where two colors meet, just crossed behind the butterfly and to me it's bit distracting while concentrate on butterfly.
(2) Excellent "Butterfly" shot, but it is surrounded by a dark hallow. I'm not exactly sure of the cause, but I think it wasn't in your original shot. It happened during Post-processing if you used 'Gamma' /'Burn' tool with brush to get rid of unwanted light on butterfly. In another way, this 'Dark Hallow' could come and that is 'Gaussian Blur'. If you use 'Gaussian Blur' in the background without masking, then edges of the black area gets white, and white edges gets Black. Fringes!But here I don't think so, because flowers look OK.
(3) In my personal test, bit crop from left and right side would have been more attractive, mainly to get rid of BLANK SPACE, and to get perfect composition "Fill the frame" with subject.
(4) I would prefer to remove (bottom) unwanted out of focus emerging 🌿 plant.

That's all for tonight. Just simple ignore, if you don't like my comment.
Thanks for sharing. Keep posting.
Regards,
Srikumar
