Yet another butterfly I've seen on my mom's butterfly bush. This was taken at full 10X zoom from about 10 feet. It was as close as I could get, as every time I tried to get any closer it would move to the opposite side of the bush, lol.:-)



It was really not the ideal time of day to take a photo, as you can tell, but I just thought it's a pretty animal. Looking at it again, I wonder if darkening this just a touch might make it look even better. I think I'll try it this evening when I get home from work....

you're right it' s better more darker ,

i play a little with your photo removing noise, more darker, more contrast and work on the yellow part of the butterfly, and also recrop it.

Chris, that would be fine with me, I'm at work right now, and I can post, but I can't edit my photos here as I don't have any photo software on my shop computer.

The first was a very nice photograph both compositionally and color-wise. The edit brings out the richness of colors magnificently. Great team effort on this one.

Wow, I haven't snooped around the forum much this week, I've been pretty well swamped, Chris, this looks very, very good. You really brought out the color a lot when you darkened it up.

Hi folks;

Yes, the colours are richer, but we lose some of the nice detail of the shadowed flowers. For me, I'd like to be able to see those colours as well. (ok, I know I'm being really picky... I'll go crawl back under my rock...:?)

Regards,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

Hi, Guitarman,

Nice work with both the pictures, but I like the original better. I think the brightness and contrast in the second is too high. I think I'M TOO FUSSY.
