Default inspired by mpaul73

I went to get some sunset pics yesterday, but was greeted by a cloud bank instead. So I made lemonade and (remembering mpaul73's nice shots) tooks some shots of a dragonfly in the setting sun. This is the best of the 4. Pitty I couldn't get behind it, but I didn't want to leave the trail because of ticks and... well, it's just wrong to leave marked trails.

I just love the wing pattern. Makes me think of a pattern in tile.



Canon 10D, 100-400 @400m f5.6 1/90th, hand held, fill flash.
PS - sharpen, crop, contrast tricks.

Hi Eric
What a humbling title! lol

Seriously, it is a great pic. Love the colours and part of its wing looks like stain glass. Glad to have inspired you!

cheers
Martin.

Great shot, but a bit grainy. Wondeful sharpness and great colours. You did a great job there Eric. Thanks for sharing.

I had to pump the ISO up to 400 to get even a reasonable shutter speed... it was really close to sunset. I should have run it through neatimage before posting.

That, and maybe I played a little too much with the contrast/saturation.

Glad you like it. I'm looking forward to getting some extention tubes, a tripod and a shutter release so I can get more of them. I've always thought dragon flies were really neat.
