    colors wise, i think bringing up the saturation a tad of the flowers would make it "pop" just a little bit more, but try not to get too heavy-handed with the sliders.

    subtlety is key.

    my humble 2 cents, cheers!
    thank you! and thank you for your suggestions and advice, especially "subtlety is key." i fully agree. :) cheers!

    Hi Pyll,

    Sorry, I dont think I would call it a beautiful piture. This is what I feel, I think you should cropped out all the distracting flower on the right and leave the butterfly and the flower. Then use a bigger amperature to futher blurr the background. Thirdly, well say easier then done, you notice the flower bud above the butterfly head? That actually destroy the picture as it had attract the viewer eye to it, instead of the butterfly eye which you would people to focus on. Next time watch out this situation.

    Thank you.

    Hi vincybaby, thanks for your critiques, I appreciate the time and effort in writing them. By using a 'bigger amperature', I suppose you meant using a wider aperture in a new shot to be taken. And yes, I will watch out for similar situations.
