Gorgeous blues - that's the first thing that strikes me is that amazing color. Very clear and crisp - the edges are wonderfully sharp.

Hello Haraprasan,
Crystal clear shot of a Blue Tiger in a fine pose to show its beauty and set in a pleasing composition. The flowers look interesting too.
TFS and all the best, Ivan

Hello Haraprasan,
clear, precise, well describing portrait of that delightfully coloured species. An abundance of details.
The use of flash resulted in very hard light that seemed to be responsible the overexposure of some of the white flowers.
Built-in flash in a close-up is difficult to control, softening it by a piece of white handkerchief held in between may help sometimes.
With thanks, and best regards,
Peter

Hi Haraprasan,

Friend nice shot but (my personal opinion) seem to be just need little more contrast and brightnes. But th eposition and the spread of the wings are excellent. TFS Ganesh

Cada dia nos presentas una nueva belleza. Hoy no solo por la mariposa y su perfecto enfoque, sino por su juego con la planta. La luz no falta jejeje. Magnםfica toma Hara.

Hello Harpasan

Nice framing ,sharpness and colours but the DoF should be reduced to give preferance to the butterfly (It is my view).

Hello Haraprasan,
You've captured this lovely butterfly really well in a nice pose. I like the flowers too. All is nicely in focus showing sharp details.
It's a bit overexposed though. I think you were too close using the flash. At a further distance it would probably have worked out really well.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Hello Haraprasan,

Hi Haraprasan,
Outstanding shot of the Blue Tiger in all its glory. Fabulous colours and very impressive sharpness and good use of flash lighting here. I like the natural setting. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.
TFS.

Grand open-wings view of this slightly worn Blue Tiger, HP.
The image is very sharp and colourful.
The blossoms on which it is settled add distinct colours to the entire composition.
Well done and TFS.
