    Well, after looking at your amazing photos of dragonflies and butterflies, it really doesn't seem like my lowly little moth photo belongs here, but I'll keep reminding myself that I'm still learning.

    As always, C&C are welcomed. Thus far, the photo hasn't been edited (except for being cropped a bit).
    Let me know what I can do to improve this boring little photo.
    Thanks:mrgreen:

    Dang, I meant to post this in the Critique forum. I'm sorry.

    Let me see... It could use a bump in exposure. It's a little dark. The moth is a pretty one, but not something that I would say as a gorgeous picture. I like the framing, and I like the simplicity, but I don't have a direction on what I'm supposed to be thinking about. It's simply a snap shot of a relatively pretty moth.

    Thanks for you comments.
    I wasn't completely sure how I felt about the photo, myself. I liked that I was able to get the detail of the moth's wings but the white background and lack of anything really interesting was rather disappointing.
    I wasn't sure if there was anything I could to in editing to save it or not.

    Thanks again for your reply, it really does mean a lot to me.

    You are welcome. I know that you have posted that you don't want it edited but can I have a jab at it just for fun?
