Nice capture, good composition, nice color contrast. Perhaps too much image on the right. Nice work.   Posted: 02/06/2021 16:24:17

Great detail in all the right places.Perfect exposure. Thanks for the information about lens, exposure, etc. Was that flash one the camera's hot shoe?   Posted: 02/09/2021 10:21:41

Beautiful colors. Background well blurred to focus on the dragonfly. Might crop on the right side.   Posted: 02/11/2021 07:28:02

Excellent! bug image. The body and finely laced wings are pixar perfect.   Posted: 02/11/2021 13:29:04

Nice work! I agree about cropping out a little of the right side. I wish the dotted part on the side of its head was a little sharper, but it isn't enough to really detract from the image.   Posted: 02/11/2021 13:52:02

It looks great to me. You might have had a little more sharpness on the foreground wings but it is perfect on the body and the little critters sitting there.   Posted: 02/18/2021 19:05:05
