A butterfly photographed at the Cockrell Butterfly Center at the Houston Museum of Natural History, Texas, USA.

Not sure how this is going to do. I have used this processing on two other challenges and the images did pretty well, so I am hoping for another good showing.

This will also be my first challenge entered with my new Voigtlander Nokton 42.5mm f0.95. The lens is a little soft wide-open and with the very narrow DoF at this close distance I got the effect I was after, a very soft dreamy looking photograph.

Gorgeous muted blue. Rather glowy but I think it works.

I like the softness of this. I would have rotated this 270 deg but your symmetry doesn't feel unbalanced the way it is.

this looks wonderfully delicate, nicely done with the photo and processing choices

Beautiful image but it doesn't scream blue to me.

This is so pretty! I don't care for the landscape presentation though...I keep turning my head to the right almost automatically. But I LOVE the soft colors and focus!

This looks more green then blue to me. Pretty cool shot though.
