personally i think it looks fantastic and bravo to you for trying such a shot i would maybe blur the backround a little more to lose the halo in the sky

Very nicely done, though I agree with changing the sky a bit to get rid of the halo. The butterfly and the greenery came out beautifully. Did you use a tripod? I'm amazed there was no ghosting.

Thank you all for the comments and suggestions.
Mtngal, i did not use a tripod for this image, it was hand held using the Canon 18-55mm IS lens, with IS turned on.
As for the ghosting, i set the option to reduce ghosting via Object movement in Photomatix
