This garden belongs to the Mirabal sisters's house (Patria, Minerva and Maria Teresa Mirabal). Here, they lived the last 10 months of their lives. The Mirabal Sisters were four Dominican political dissidents who opposed the dictatorship of Rafael Leonidas Trujillo. On November 25, 1960, three of the sisters were assassinated. In 1999, the sisters received recognition by the United Nations General Assembly, who designated November 25 as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women in their honor. The murder of these sisters was one of the reasons that caused the fall and final execution on May 30, 1961 of the dictator that ruled with iron hands for 31 years the Dominican Republic. They were known as Las Mariposas (Butterflies)

This one is over the top for me.The insertion of the butterfly really made the image unique.As for the size it would only mean it was closer to the camera.

Vado controcorrente rispetto alle altre votazioni. Bellissima foto, colori stupendi, ottimo hdr ma ... non mi convince la farfalla ...
