Hello

I was having a play with an old manual 80/200 f4 + macro lens on my k200 body in the local wood.I spotted this butterfly and took a few grabbed shots after shooting under the trees in the shade - they were handheld and nothing done to the shot save a bit of cropping - was a fairly bright day and shooting towards the sun - randomly shot at f16 400 iso at 1/125 sec on manual...

any comments / advice

Well captured Paul, two perfectly good images, maybe just a little brightening up wouldn't harm (the Butterflies a Peacock)

2 lovely shots with nice DOF and Love the Bokeh on 2 but both seem a little soft.

Nice shots, download the free version of Paint Shop Pro 30 day trial, you will probably buy it great program.

Nice photos. They are slightly soft, but otherwise great

Hi!

There is great free software available, and I can't recommend enough Gimp and Paint.net. Gimp is Photoshop like and can be made even more like it by using the GIMPshop modification/addon.
