Hi Anne,
Thank you very much for your comment on one of my recent posts. I appreciate it, and hope you'll return to TN with new photos also. This one's fabulous, the stamens are tack sharp, and the purple tone of the petals are wonderful, such as lights, composition and crop. In my home country, Hungary this species lives in sand desert meadows, is protected by the laws and wearing the name 'one-haired flower'. But I myself never managed to find it in the wild. Thanks for sharing this breathtaking image.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Luciano,
Hats off for finding and photographing this beaut. Perfect light management with flash usage, and spectacular bright pink flower. WS image's great, too. Worthy and valuable post, not only photographical, but botanical-wise also. Thanks for sharing this fantastic cactus image, and for your contribution on TN.

Hi Srikumar,
This isn't your best photo in my opinion, the vertical frame looks nice, but the image's too bright, lacking contrast and the crop isn't the best either. Again: in my opinion! I made a workshop to demonstrate my ideas, please have a look.

Hi Michel,
Welcome back to TN first of all. Your photo's fantastic, exposure's perfect with many details on both the whites and blacks, as well as sharpness. Composition's second to none with the goose forming a semi-diagonal line on the pic in open wing pose, while lights are wonderful. Spectacular colors also - absolutely the "photo of the day" for me. Bravo!

Hi Jose,
Powerful shot, beautiful macro with the young flower covered with waterdrops. Not only the crocus, but the background is emphatic, too, with the bent branch and the warm lights. Absolutely unique image, and very pleasant to look at. Bravo!

Hi Marine,
Nicely composed shot, the fly's position is semi-diagonal, which immediately helps to sell the image to the viewer. The petals greatly frame the insect. There are 2 minor issues to fix in my opinion, firstly the colors are a very little bit in cyan direction - this may easily be fixed with adjusting the white balance in your photo editing software. Secondly, focus is a little soft, probably due to re-sizing - a selective sharpening on the insect's body is the solution. I love your exposure (no blown out parts, although you used flash and rather wide aperture), however, why on Earth did you need red-eye reduction mode for this photo?
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Peter,
I'm very glad you're posting again, and as you said, you'll visit the site more regularly. At the same time, thank you very much for visiting my gallery, and for your nice words. Your photo's fantastic, with proper exposure, beautiful colors and perfect sharpness on both the caterpillar and the greenery. Background, although a little bit overexposed, is very interesting also, with various layers of the faraway mountains. The overexposion even helps to isolate the main subject and to gain all the viewer's attention on it. A masterpiece! Bravo!

Hi Dietrich,
Wonderful species and photo, plus nice dedication to Luciano. You captured the bright orange tone perfectly, and the focus was on the closer wing, a little under the top, so we get perfect sharpness on almost the whole outer side of the left wing. Nice shot, congratulations!

Hi Luciano,
Congratulations for finding (and posting) the first butterfly of the year, I didn't expect it may happen now. In Hungary we have 70 centimetres of snow in the mountains (which is very much there), meanwhile in Ireland there are the usual, rainy, plus 4-5 degrees winter conditions (if we can call it "winter" in the land of eternal spring and autumn). So, I'm really surprised and happy that in Italy butterflies, at least a few, finished their hybernation season. Great photo, not only due to its uniqueness, but also due to the nice composition and the great color contrast between the bright red of the wings and the rather dull background. Lovely shot, bravo!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Asbed,
Beautiful action photo in your unmistakable style. Very spectacular pose (and timing as you managed to freeze the action into the image), the gull's forming a nice V, really lovely. Great lights, colors as well. I can also imagine a tighter crop, on both sides and at the bottom also, just with the bird and some of the branches only. But your choice is great, too, the image's pleasant to look at. Elegant work!

Hi Sri,
Nice capture. The ruffled feathers seem like the bird just had a bath, in water or dust. ☺ Lights, colors, background are superb, as well as the composition. Probably the focus was on the bird's head as the plumage on their back is a little unsharp. Otherwise an excellent photo.

Hi Ron,
Very nice photo, lights seem gorgeous compared to an overcast day. Great capture, superb sharpness and colors - however, I might crop more of the oof greenery in the foreground, a semi-panoramic format would be more powerful, I guess. Just a personal opinion, obviously, a loveely image except for the crop.
Kind regards, László

Hi Ron,
Awesome photo. The combination of tight aperture and flash always pays off, you've got great DoF and proper exposure on the mantis, but entirely black background. Excellent contrast due to the above, great sharpness and clarity. Superb masterpiece, hats off for you!

Hi Silvio,
Beautiful image of a Nymphalidae which I've never before heard about, and which is quite similar to the well-known c-album. Gorgeous lights / shadows, spectacular composition and conspicuous colors, depth of field is brilliant as well. Stunning shot! Bravo!

Hello 👋 Jose,
Dramatic, no doubt ☺ and I like such light effect in the picture. Very good details and perfect focus. Little bit more space in the foreground (cleaning those dry branches) could have been better, in my view ☺
Thanks for such beautiful picture
