You got some nice pictures from the lens before you sent it back. I like the second of the first pair (barely). The colors pop a bit more and the first one is a bit dull-looking in a way, but there's a nice quality/feeling in the first one that the second one doesn't have (it almost looks like it has more dimension or something, I don't know). I can't explain it.

As far as your second pair, I like the first one better. I think you got a bit too carried away with lightening the picture and it took some of the contrast the first one has away.

Well I agree with everyone else No.2 and the first darker moth. By the way, they're terrific shots.

OK. thank you all for your feed back! that helps more than you know.

Harriet, yeah, I know just what you mean.

BTW, when Patty called them moths, it made me wonder just what they were so I did a little checking on line and came up with some similar photos here, http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/images?l=1391 I'm pretty sure they are called "Checkered White butterflies." if I'm wrong, somebody please let me know.
Again, thanks to all.

Why thank you Daniel, I glad everyone liked them.
My thought was, they should have had more detail especially around the eyes and face.

Hi GW,

What did the shots look like thru your viewfinder? Did they look like the darker ones or the lighter ones?

It is all a matter of preference...

By the way know anybody that wants to buy a Goldwing???

Checkered White it is. Of the last two, which are outstanding images, I like the first for the plant, and the second for the butterfly - perhaps something halfway between would favor both?

GW, you need to get a good field guide - I recommend the Kaufman Guide to the Butterflies of North America ($19.95, and well worth it - and you won't have to sell your prized Goldwing to get it, either). The internet is a great resource, but you need to know where to start and what to look for - it is easy to go astray when all of the choices are not in front of you. A field guide is a good starting point even if it doesn't answer the question completely to your satisfaction in the first place.

Hooray for me, I got one right!
Thanks Pen. I do plan on getting one, its just one of those things I never quite seem to get around to.
