It is a beautiful shot. Congratulations on capturing it. #181443

Pu Chen 10/24/2004 1:14:08 AM

Great catch, Sanjay! The color of the butterfly is really pretty. #865483

Kip T. Berger 10/24/2004 1:32:39 AM

Nice shot Sanjay....good detail & clarity of the butterfly and nice shallow DOF. Nice to see you shooting & experimenting in context oustside your main characteristics!..Shows good motivation to better yourself, and the creativity to try other ideas.
Love your graphical elements & use of colors in your main type shooting; but think expanding, like you are doing , will benefit in seeing "Outside the box" of what you are accustomed to shooting. Keep up your great work! #865487

I don't know if it was luck or skill; either way, it is a wonderful capture.

Great color, saturation and DoF, Sanjay.

Very nicely done. ..mike ;-] #865754

Donald K. Cherry 10/24/2004 5:35:44 AM

Beautiful macro, Sanjay. The colors, composition and DOF are wonderful. I think you have surpassed my ability in macro shots!

I'm in a slump again...my shot from yesterday only received 3 comments all day and I must have made 15-20! Even the regulars who always comment on my work have not been commenting! Today I have a really nice shot posted, but so far it has gone completely unnoticed! I don't understand what I do wrong!

Take care my good friend, Don #865821

William C. Raco 10/24/2004 5:59:26 AM
