taken at the zoo, with a 50mm lens, around 2pm.
hows the composition of the photograph?
should i have included the entire hand in? leaving out the negative space on the right?

I think there is too much hand to the left. More black maybe better.

it will be good to fully focus on the butterfly

i find the long frame uncomfortable.
you have correctly focussed on the butterfly's eyes (though they are small and dark and not easy to see) you'll probably need more DOF (increase f stop) or use flash to fill in more details on the butterfly..

Interesting...how is it that u got a butterfly to land on ur hand?
Contrary to cropping out the black area, I feel that cropping out most of the hand is better.

the hand in the picture belonged to my classmate, and it only stayed on her hand for like 2 secs, was quite fortunate to be just next to her to capture the moment.
i was on AF at that time, and so focus maybe off since i aimed a little too low.
as for dof, you guys think its too shallow?
i was on f1.4 i think, thus everything else seemed blur ,
next time perhaps i should have used f2 instead?[i doubt there will be a next time though!]haha
thanks guys for your comments!
anyone with experiences of shooting butterflies?care to share?
very delicate yet beautiful creatures!
