Hi I've decided I need to make an effort to improve and try new things
so here's the first effort from the other day at the Butterfly house
its intentionally over exposed (plus 1 1/3)
I spent an hour photographing this butterfly partly because I was struggling for light and people kept walking past causing movement
(was on tripod and mirror lockup shutter speeds of about 1/6 and f4)
But mainly I was waiting for it to move into a good position and get the background I wanted
in the end I got one shot that I was happy with before another one landed on it causing it to fly off!
I don't really have the eye for composition especially while I'm actually shooting am trying though
Which is the best composition the first shot or the second which is cropped from the first?
I prefer the second crop but interested in what you guys think
Thanks very much rocco and Tom appreciated
Hers another of the butterfly from the other side with the stem behind the butterfly and "normal" exposure
not 100% sharp I was really struggling with shutter speed even tho was using a tripod
there was a bit of a subject movement, should have upped the ISO
