Hello all, I took this today when out looking fro dragon flies to take photos of, I found a few trees clumped together that they kept landing in, and in this case, landing close together. Just wondering what you all make of the shot and what I could/could have done to improve it.

An interesting shot. I think the composition is good, but its a shame the wing was cut off. I did a real qquick alteration to the shot. just as usual increased mid tone contrst and noise reduec to clean up the shot and again applied the golld old usm

hope you dont mind

Oh yea with any shots of bugs the unsharp mask and saturation boosts usually enhance an image nicely.

Thank you very much, that's cool.



Can you (or anyone) recommend a good free noise reduction programme?
