Oh, my goodness! Your dragonfly is SO crisp, so much detail. What animal? grass? is it on? Can you talk about how you processed his "white" wings to be gossamer and see-through?   Posted: 08/04/2020 20:35:04

thanks brinda , i did not understand " is it on " mean , do you mean it is life or it is on grass , at all it is life one not dead and i just catch it from my office garden and black background is my desktop screen , honestly editing of wings is too hard , i keep use multiply blending mode in photoshop and make mask for rest of body until i reach this result , the light is a little harsh cause i did not have modifier just use A4 paper as small softener at front of my small speed light   Posted: 08/12/2020 08:06:35

Amazing level of detail, and as Brenda pointed out the wings now look so but better than the original.
