This fly was sat on the peony leaf tonight (gone now) and has a nice autumnal look to it thanks to the colours of the turning leaf.

How does the shadow look to you fellas?

I think my screen needs calibrating - to me the underbelly of the fly & leaf is an ugly brown...

It all looks good to me.
The "ugly brown" you see, I don't, (It looks like it's a slight 'burnt orange', but not brown at all) my monitor is somewhat calibrated, meaning, it's been a while since it's been calibrated, but it works fine for me.

Nice shot, ain't a thing wrong with it at all. :)
