  2. Lovely shots Dao. You have captured excellent detail and color.
     
  3. You are getting very good at this.

    Are you using a SB800? If so I would like to know the setup as it could be a useful guide for when I get mine.
    By the way the last but one, is the male of the last one. ie P.syvlia.

    Hi Bob,

    The setup with the flash is : SB80 + Lumiquest pocket softbos. With my D100 loaded with Fotogenetic tone curve and with average metering, depending on the lighting, I use 0,0 or --0,3EV flash compensation

    About the butterflies naming convention, lesson learned as you can see in my new pictures.

    Dao,

    Did you have your surgery yet? If so, did everything go OK?

    Are you OK?

    Regards,

    Frank
     
  6. Hi Frank, I'm touched by your concern, my friend. Yes, I had the surgery done yesterday and everything is fine. It's fabulous : the first time since I was 10, I can see clearly with my right eye far objects without my glasses. Before even with my glasses. I can't see clearly far away as it is now.

    There still is a problem with my sighting. Since my left eye isn't «corrected» yet (it should be done may be in 2 or 3 weeks, I hope so), when I use my glasses with only the left glass on, I see two images, one more blurry and quite larger than the other due to the magnification of the left glass. It's funny. May be I should try to «translate» this kind of seeing in pictures. :D 

    Cheers and again thank for the concern.

    Dao,

    Glad you are doing better.

    I would like to know what lens you used for these excellent flutterbys. :) 

    Thanks,
     
  10. Neil. Thank for the kind words. These pictures were shot last thursday, a day before surgery. Glad you enjoy them.

  11. Thanks for the concern, Patrick. I used the Tamron 180mm Di macro. It's an awesome lens in term of sharpness and color rendition.

    Regards.
