2. A miracle, captured on film, an astonishing gesture of an all-time favorite that’s moist to the very last crumb, packed with spice and tangy sweetness, all expressed in the brilliance, natural colors of this fragile life form. The photographer has the patience of a Deity, as if they were the director of time and fate itself, yet still human, continuing to search for more legendary events, in hopes to understand one’s worth and behavior in this world. Although the Life Form is only Black and White, and this theme has be done countless of time… -I’m beginning to sense the layers behind the image, the true concept that the photographer wanted us to discover, although it’s not at first glance, I figure the artist behind the piece, wanted us to explore for ourselves, to witness the artist endeavors, for capturing this electrifying miracle on film. I’m seriously enjoying, how you taken this fragile colorless butterfly, and transformed into a magical moment, that can be felt over and over again, just by coming to this page you boldly displayed, despite how simple it might feel, I understand what you were saying through the masterpiece before me… "Everything is born from this planet, a number, a TV, even thoughts that entertain, everything is out of this planet, a boyfriend, a pencil, even your new videos, everything”… I’ve written this not to be heard, but to acknowledge and complement a collection of good quality art. The magic is within the black and white, we the viewers can feel it, and that is why we comment, it’s from the bottom of our heart, your talent as a photographer is well noted and appreciated, thank you for sharing your miracle, that taken time and patience from your life, in order to share it with us, we own you an great thanks… Continue to reach new artistic achievements.

wow! i really love the nice collors in the backround! the stripes and spots on the wings is really beautyful :D and the focus is really good! :meow: i really like that we can't really see what the backround is, because it makes it look like it's just a whole lot of collors! i really like it when you take photos of animals, because you are really good at it (have seen through your gallery:meow: ) i see that you have a good grip of focus, light and...you know...all that kind of stuff. however, i think the picture is a bit boring in a way.... i think it would be a bit more interesting if you maybe didn't have the butterfly in the middle of the photo :D but other than that it's really an amazing photo :D

And this time, the contrary, you center is and it looks so perfect with this leaf only centred and nothing around except a lovely and magical bokeh. You a good feeling for the composition :aww:

That's awesome... Blows my dislike of centre composition out of the water. Perfectly captured, and an incredible background too.

Haha, thank you! I must confess, I never seem to follow the rule of thirds, it seems to be the main rule I enjoy breaking the most.

Lovely picture! I love the placing of the butterfly, right in the middle. The colours of the butterfly are totally different from the other colours in the picture so it seems to jump out of the picture, great work!

I always loved your nature shots. It's rare to see such a delicate creature captured so peaceful and still in its natural habitat. Butterflies are amazing up close.
