Santosh Saligram
Give me the colour of amber
And the lightness of a butterfly
So that with wings of gossamer
I could into the moonrise fly

Very artistic Santosh. Since butterflies are colorful subjects the tendency is to bring out the colors in best possible fashion. Liked the fact you have gone against that tendency and presented it in monochrome. Additionally a grey border might add more to the image.

was waiting for this beauty man! The image is really unique and the open butterfly wings and it looking towards the round OOF highlight is the main attraction to this picture. The other unique aspect as pointed by Mahesh is the B/W representation of a subject which we usually associate with in Color. It deserves a nice place on the wall as a huge print. I absolutely loved it.
On a different note, I see a couple of dust spots, you may want to clone them off before you print this one for my wall ;-)

What I like about this image - that blob of soft, white light in the background that gives this image a surreal, artistic feel! Very nice.

I always struggle to understand when to go B&W - you seem to have done very well Santhosh here. The "moon" is really adding to the frame :) Thanks for sharing..

Amazing image Santosh. Love the monotone frame here. Resisting the strong urge of showing the colors of the beautiful b'fly is extremely tough but this one is simply mind blowing.
