Challenge: Grace (Classic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-10D
Location: Dobies Butterfly Centre, Edinburgh
Date: Oct 26, 2003
Aperture: F9
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/200
Date Uploaded: Oct 26, 2003

Taken at a local Butterfly Centre. This was the first shot I took and the reason for the soft filter effect is the condensation on the lens. The centre is a huge greenhouse which is kept at over 100F. It must have been 30 degrees colder outside. I took a few shots similar to this when the lens aclimitized but I like this one best.

Would be hard to get more graceful than this. Beautiful capture.

Nice capture. I like the soft look and feel of this image.The composition and light are very pleasing.

An amazing shot! Beautiful and very graceful. Great composition and focus. A bit soft and there seems to be a slight color cast; some sharpening and color balance tweaking might improve it.

The orange glow is distracting for me.

I don't know how it has been composed, but the result is stunning. Details are present but it's not oversharpened. Perfect background (colorwise and sober). It's definitly graceful too. One of the best ones up to now.

One of the very few times a photo gets a 10 before it finishes downloading. Especially good: orange against black and difficulty of timing and focus.

Good shot, played with it in PS and like it with just the top butterfly too. A little sharper would have brought out a little more detail all over. :-)

the lighting gives a dreamy effect....
they look more like moths to me though....looking at their colours but I am no expert on this though :)

Great Closeup! Nice subject, but I would think if the butterfly could be captured in a slight motion it will further enhance the effect. Perhaps its a personally preferance, for mi the flapping of the butterfly wings IS where Grace is best shown. But i know it will be easier said than done of course... jus a suggestion. Maybe u already know all these. =) smiles.

Wonderful shot, absolutely graceful. Were these captured while they were flying? If so, great timing! My only nitpick would be with the leaves of the plant interfering on the left...but what can a person do about that when you've captured them so perfectly. Great shot!
