Hello Ram.

This is a beautiful macro shot. Good colors, well composed and shapr details. I see some jpeg compression artefacts around the tail, but I bet they are not there in the original. Very well done & TFS!


Hello Ram,
This is a good post of this dragonfly.
I like their pose on the end of the trunk.
You got nice details and colors on the insect and their wings.
DOF makes a beautiful and blurred background, plenty of greens and yellows.
Congratulations, thanks for share and Merry Christmas,

hello RAM
déjà merci du partage, ensuite félicitations pour cette super capture, bons détails

Hi Ram,
she's wonderful, so pretty colours and good sharpness, I wished I also could go out to look at them, but all died now - we have about -3 degree, soooo coooold!
Thanks and greetings

Hi Ram

What a superb dragonfly!
It really does appear to have its legs stretched, and also due to the very good contrast with the BG, they seem quite long :)
I like the side POV, the sharp details and the natural, lovely and well saturated colors.
A wonderful composition, as well.

Bravo, TFS and Happy Holidays, my friend!

Hi Ram

Great shot, nicely composed and a great pose, i like the way it is rubbing its front legs together, nice dtails and lovely vivid colours which brighten up a miserable day.

Happy Christmas and have a Great 07

Felices Fiestas amigo mío!!!
Una espectacular macro con el punto de vista ideal, al igual que la iluminación captada que brinda bellos detalles del insecto e intensos colores sobre un perfecto fondo difuso.
Me encanta el encuadre que elegiste para su presentación con el tronco coprotagonizando la escena con el insecto.
Mis mejores deseos para el año que se aproxima y nos llene de bellas imágenes como esta!.
