    Welcome to CiC, bigpapo. I would assume that is not your first name. We'd be glad to know your name so we can address you properly. When I clicked your attached image, it's still too small to give a reasonable comment about the image. I am also using Flickr as my image uploader. If you will click on the "Share" option, it will show you a drop down menu with some more options to choose. I choose "Grab the HTML/BBCode" and then I click the link inside the open window. It will turn blue once you click it. Now, press CTRL+C to save the link. That information is now saved on your computers' clipboard so all you have to do is press CTRL+V on your open post and the link will be pasted on your post accordingly. Hope this helps.

    Hello again, Angelo. This is a nice butterfly shot. The butterfly is sharp and has a lot of detail. It is also brighter than the other elements in the scene making me focus my eyes longer on the butterfly. While looking at it an idea came to me... have you considered turning the image 90 degrees clockwise to make it a portrait shot? It might make the shot stronger. I really like the way you took this shot. If I may add some additional comment, you could probably make this shot more interesting by cloning out the flower bud at the rear of the butterfly's wing and just darken the background just a little bit. I did a minor edit if you may allow me:

    No worries, Angelo. From what I have learned in photography "reality is relative". The moment you pressed the shutter button and the camera's sensor recorded the image that you "saw" , that piece of reality has already been altered by the property of the lens you used and your camera's digital processor. In the end, what really stands out is your idea of what was the reality that you saw on your mind. Pardon me, I'm always like this when i'm low on my supply of morning coffee.
