Very successful! Usually I like things centered, but I've gotta admit, given the background here, your placement is much better. Lighting is good and I can see lots of detail. What a graceful profile this creature has!

Nothing to do with your photograph, but...I'm dying to know where his other two legs are!

I'm not sure where I land on the central placement issue. Sometimes I like to see the subject as the center, and yet I can understand the other side too. Anyway, this turned out great !!!!!

Ewa - you promised more and look at this - the detail is stunning. My take on center or off is whatever suits the subject and you've chosen well here!! - Patty

We'll forgive you anything for posting such a beautiful close up like this! Centered gets right to the point when there is no distraction from the background.

Hi Ewa darling. For a macro, centering is not much of a problem. Achieving the shot is the talent. You have done a well job. Little bit shaked though but I can with that.

I don't see this as cented. The majority of the butterfly is on the left side. Excellent capture. Like the background. It is perfect for display of this pretty creature.

I also don't think this is really centered - also the pretty colors and detail are great here!

I agree with the worry about centering...the clarity and detail achieved is the thing and with that you've done a great job...good work Ewa.:Pat.

This is a beautiful looking butterfly and I like the wonderful designs on the wings. It is a hairy looking thing

I will forgive you everything as long as you aren't that hairy on your chest ;-))
Great capture Ewa, one look at your gallery tells me that I missed a lot over the last few month. Very good work from you, my friend, both thumbs up !!!
