    I went to the butterfly garden this morning to check if on-camera flash + softbox would work (a macro flash kit is pretty expensive!). Camera: Nikon D750.
    Most shots were taken with 105mm. A few with 70-200 f4. Postprocessing: primarily standard or vivid camera profile - some clarity - s-tone curve - sharpening. Exposure adjustment upon need (either shadows/blacks or exposure)

    I am not 100% happy about the results but I am somewhat stuck how I could improve. Suggestions are welcome!

    Looks like you had fun. I think #6 is my favorite. I also like the mono version.
