Great colors and sharpness got to get myself a nikon 6t.

Compositionwise.. not my cup of tea. I would like to see the whole dragon fly, or more close-up. This is just between.

cheers,

Tim

Ditto.Impressive color and sharpness. The close-up is ok with me but more dragonfly... less leaf.

Great shot. The green background takes away from the picture a little bit. Have you tried playing around with the background color in PS. Maybe try to replace it with a different hue

Thanks for the comments. I agree the composition is a bit off. I have always found if difficult with macro work like this to get good composition. With high ratios everything is always moving and DOF is a real issue, I guess I still have lot to learn. Always fun trying though!:-):-)

Hoooba, I didnt have a problem with the background color and I wouldn't know where to start on changing the hue. I still have to get the hang of PS.

Cheers

Simon

I have actually just found another photo (I took far too many to keep track of) and while the focus isnt as good and the angle isnt quite on the get the most of the DOF I think the composition is better.
Again opinions more than welcome.

Great shot - it's about impossible to get all these super-long creatures in the picture when shooting macro. BTW, this is a damsel, not a dragonfly! (Fly fishing nerd here... :-) )
