Very nice maybe a little adjustment only on to the butterfly , it seems a little dark...or is my monitor....the thistle looks well exposed...!

Big Black on a Thistle - re-visited:

Fons -

Thanks again. This is a very black butterfly; however, the splashes of colors are rather bright. Unfortunately, while the butterfly remains black the colors are more subdued on this image than they were in bright sunlight. All my post processing (what little bit I do) is done with a free download - Faststone Image Viewer, which is not nearly as versatile as all the various Photo Shops that most folks prefer to use. I have Photo Shop Elements but I just haven't taken the time to acquaint myself with all the features it has to offer.
