Hello from the CC CLub

Love the title, very nice indeed.

Your shot is on the small side. Now when you go into resizing your shot the biggest number is 720, then go down to Resolution and it will normally say 250, cut that down to 100. Then go back up to the highest number (it will have changed to a lower number) and type in your 720. You should get at least a 7x6 or higher shot.

as for your shot, I love it everything works well, a little luminance in the panes of the butterfly would have really made it pop alive. Here I just used a bit of dodge and burn, ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/85000-89999/87808/120/812550.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/85000-89999/87808/120/812550.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

not syaing you have to do any of this, but just a subtle hint works wonders sometimes. POV adn DOF are good a little sharpening would work wonders here too.

A lovely peaceful shot here, and I love the title, it is very fitting , well done

good, but why so small when you have 720 pixels to play with?
