Photographer's Request for Critique

Celebration of wings

There is the season for Black-veined White (Aporia crataegi) in my area. I like the gothic elegance of those butterflies; pure form - no eye-catching flashy colours! View them LARGE please!

This is one of the best butterfly photo i've ever seen. I can see that this photo is taken in a studio/unnatural setting. That explain the number and the position of the buterfly as well as the shadow on the background. It remove nothing to the photo !!

Congratulation !

Very impressed

Hi, This photo immediately captured my eye: it has a subtlety and elegance that is all too rare in most photos. The simplicity of the photo, the repeated clean patterns, the beauty of the insects, the soft backlighting through fog; it all comes together to create a work of art. And to top it all off, some action (the butterfly taking off). Well done!

I kept coming back to look at it. Everything - backlighting, colours, DOF, focus, timing - all perfect IMO. Absolutely one of a kind.

Black-veined White

Me, I would have left the top guy out of the photo altogether. He's missing the fragility you've captured in the others. Simplicity at its best. KSmith

Beautiful Melancholy

This is absolutly beautiful, absolut something I would put up on my wall!! I kinda remind me of one of daVinci's scetches of bugs, same delicate lines, the gray and warm tones. I think that the one on the top is the one that makes the image so special, how you can see the movement in the wings. Fabelous!

Great capture Igor.

I agree, the sublety of their colour (or lack of!) is beauty in itself. Your DOF is great, and I think you've caught them on the perfect plant, the first thing I noticed was how the points of the thistle (?) seemed to mimic the veins in their wings, Very well done.

Catalog use?

Hi there:

I'm a Picture Researcher for the marketing department at The Teaching Company in Chantilly, Virginia (USA). We're an electronic publishing company, working in the educational space. Our courses are typically produced on DVD or audio CD, and target life-long learners (mostly post-graduates.)

I'm interested in several of your images, including the above shot, for a catalog cover, and wanted to see if they might be available for licensing? The others I'm interested in are:

Please get back to me as soon as possible, so I know if these images can be presented as options to our team.

Thanks much.

Hello, congratulations on this beautiful work of art! Beauty, elegance and simplicity. My only nitpik would be to clone out the top one with the blured wings, this I find reduces the rest of the work. Like Katherine Ayers, thought, above. Cheers!

It's photos like this that proves my point " you don't need a mega$ camera to take great pictures, it comes from seeing" You have an artistic eye Igor.
