Hello from the Critique Club:

I didnít vote on this challenge so this is the first time Iíve looked at your entry. Let me congratulate you on a great looking image for your first challenge. My first impression was Wow. As you can tell from the comments made during voting, this is not the strongest subject choice for a Stopped Action challenge. However, chasing a butterfly is not easy and you surly did a nice job capturing this one. One suggestion I can offer is to crop just a little bit off the top of the image. If you crop the image so that the purple flower intersects the upper left corner, it becomes a very strong leading line to your butterfly. As cropped, the flower acts more like a leading line out of the image. This is an image that you should be proud to have in your portfolio.

Fantastic composition and colors! Stopped motion though? Still on my shorter list as the top, well done!

it's a shame about the angle that you caught this. it's hard to tell if it's in flight, or resting. pretty shot, though.

Nice shot. I'd try cropping in a bit tighter due to the very busy background.

From the angle it's a bit hard to tell if it's in motion, but I'll assume it was. Nice, clear picture, and the yellow/purple flower combination works.

Very beautiful image. I think you're probably going to take a minor hit for the difficulty factor. JMO of course. Very nice color and I like the background bokeh. Good luck.

The colours are nice and vivid. The backgrounds gives a nice sense of location, my only problem is that it doesn't give me an overwhelming sense of stopped motion. The butterfly might have been flapping wildly but on the other hand it could have just been relaxing taking in the sun.

you haven't really stopped the action here in the true sense of the challenge requirement, but you have come up with a nice shot
