Canon EOS 450D and 18-55mm kit lens, with f/8 and 1/250, ISO 200 setting.
1. In what area is critique to be sought?
Composition of the photograph, whether it was cropped appropriately. Whether PP could have been done, and in which area.
2. What I hope to achieve with the piece of work?
I want the eyes of the butterfly to show a certain kind of stern feeling while it's feasting on the flower, and for its mealtime to be portrayed strongly.
3. Under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
I took this photo when I noticed hostplants and flowers planted beside a basketball court and all the butterflies/moths and bee drawn to them. I wanted to portray how beauty of nature exists so simply in a school and it has been neglected, though I failed to introduce this aspect into the photo.
4. What the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
I had some difficulty with cropping this photo and positioning the butterfly. Bottom left was my final decision. I quite like this picture because of the sharpness but I think it can be further improved in many other perspectives, such as the contrast in colours. I also wondered if some flowers in the background may be non-flattering, but decided to keep it natural, which is a style I like pretty much.
