Little doubt at what caught my attention about this scene—the colors. All the colors in the scene blend perfectly. We positioned the SB-800 on a softbox on the right side and the reflector low and on the right side. I wanted the light to be very even and soft.
I took a couple shots in portrait orientation, but the image looked too static. I then noticed the flower in the right corner. I thought that it would add an implied diagonal to the overall composition. Although the flower in the corner is small and faint, I believe it adds a lot to the overall composition.
Camera settings: Nikon D3, Nikon 300mm f/4, shot at ISO 200, f/5.6 and 1/250th with a SB-800 on a softbox and triggered by Nikon CLS.
Lightroom—Set white and black points, added mid-tone contrast, clarity, change green hue and saturation, and added vignette.
Photoshop—ran nik Color Efex Pro tonal contrast filter on the butterfly and flower to add contrast to shadows, mid-tones and highlights.
