  • I'm glad it was a painted butterfly in lieu of a real one:-) Is she hiding from you or shielding from the sun? I like the red, white, red pattern in the background.

  • almost delves into abstraction...an eyeteaser you might say...

  • Clever photo. I love the lil butterfly, even though it's so tiny, it makes the whole photo i think. And the way the woman is trying to hide from the sun. :) Also the spots of red every where is nice!

    Ginnie @ 2008-07-27 05:24:25
  • It seems a catch Spanish, Brian, with this woman and this fan! Ole!

  • I love the subtlety of that tiny butterfly. Wonderful shot. She is holding the fan so delicately.

  • I like the dof. It nicely captures the spirit of a big event like this.

  • Nice picture, very well composed and framed, DOF is perfect too!
    claude @ 2008-07-27 13:24:52
  • Intersting composition and fine game with the spots of red and white.
    Still @ 2008-07-27 14:12:09
  • neat shot! like the dof and composition, actually took me a while to see the red butterfly and then i saw it and felt kind of stupid as it was right in front of me :)
