About the Image(s)

A four spotted chaser in local pond. I know the background is busier than usual for nature pics but I just love the early summer colours. :)
1/320 sec, f5.6, iso 200. Olympus OMD EM5iii, 14-140 lens.

Wow Judith - no way on earth would attempt to capture a flying subject at 1/320th second - as I said wow, nice job! I understand your comment about a 'busy' background but frankly I don't think it hurts the image, in fact it tells a story. One of the photo clubs I belong is a stickler on wildlife composition and I'm sure some might comment about how the left side of the frame doesn't add to the image, but I'm not so sure. The image has a clear COI, it's well composed, technically spot on and the colors are perfect. Hard to complain about - thanks for sharing   Posted: 07/04/2024 18:16:51

I do not think that the three green sticks on the left add to the composition. They seem to be distractions. The background is nice and the sharpness is ok.   Posted: 07/08/2024 11:06:14
