I find the lighting a little harsh in this image. I also think the partially out of focus earthen area at the bottom of the frame also detracts from the image.

Hello and greetings from the Critique Club-

Firstly, congratulations on your new personal best!
On to the photo though- I like where you went with this. Itís an interesting contrast to a lot of the photographs on DPC. Firstly, youíve somewhat downplayed the colors in a photo with a butterfly, and muted them. I think this is a good choice, and fits with how the background looks in general. Your placement of the butterfly in relation to the background elements is also very good. You didnít do the same sort of lighting effects with bokeh that many others did, but this doesnít mean itís not a good choice. Your overall editing and scene fit together very well, and having the illuminated circles in the bokeh would have gone counter to the generally somber mood of the photo. Itís very sparse, and your editing works with that instead of against it. Looking at your outtakes, I think this and img_1846 were the strongest. The other subjects suffered some from an awkward control of depth of field, where the subject itself had bits that trailed into and out of focus in a somewhat uncontrolled fashion. In the highlight of the background, immediately behind the butterfly, youíve got some weirdness going on. Iím not entirely sure itís just noise, it almost looks like its bits of clipping too, so lowering exposure, or using curves to specifically tone that down a little, might have been a good option, as well.
Overall, a good entry.

Congrats on the new PB!

Look into some noise reduction software.. I think it will improve your scores significantly! - Topaz DeNoise is awesome, and on sale this month too! :)

Hi Midhun, greetings from the Critique Club!

Regarding your photo:

Composition
It was not very clear what kind of framing were you trying to achieve. Was it a macro, or did you want to include the bottom part? I couldn't quite realize how to look at it.

Technique
Something probably happened to the settings on the camera, because the ISO is through the roof, @1600, the f/ stop is 26 and 1 second exposure. You could probably go to ISO 200, f/6 and 1/100th. That would make to photo sharper and with less noise.

Processing
For this photo probably only a noise reduction and some contrast where necessary. Also the sensor spot on the top left could be cloned out.

Overall it didn't convey much to the viewer, it lacked a point of focus or interest.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
Regards,
Joao
