Beautiful capture of this Damselfly all in focus. I like its pose and the colours are lovely and details very sharp. The beautiful pattern in the soft background completes and excellent composition.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Excellent portrait of a male C. Splendens, looking good on its perch against the watery BG. Fine lighting and technical qualities, but I understand your frustration in not being able to get out into the countryside and use your new equipment.
This species lends itself to be shown many times on TN!
Hope you have the chance to get out into nature soon!
Best wishes, Ivan

You are right, this is another Odonata picture. But so what? Is it wrong to present more than one picture of the some species if all photos are have very good quality? I DO NOT THINK SO! :>
I believe that to take this picture was not easy, especially that these species do not like human activity next to it :)
Very nice pose (I think a pose of male waiting for females), good colours, sharpness and note (especially good to see picture data).
Best regards from Lodz,

This is a stunningly sharp image from a camera that I owned and foolishly sold to upgrade to a canon slr...You have really demonstrated its capabilites perfectly and I look forward to seeing your pictures from your new kit..I know that if you can use the s2 so proficiently then theres some stunning pictures to come from your new kit..I hope you get a window to get out of town and share with us your new pictures.
TFS and best Regards

Great details and BG matching. I always wondering of the cropping and POV of its kind. Perhaps I should try that out too.

I like very much this picture!
The composition is so well built, with the branch and insect directions forming and almost 90 angle.
It's so beautiful the soft, blurred and colorful background.
My compliments and thanks for share it.

Archives were my jump start. I see you appreciate this pose in slightly diagonal. I do as well. It breaks the monotony from time to time. Well captured.

It is superb and you know it very well and everybody sees it very well too. There are only three objects and each of them is reproduced fantastically perfectly. Plus superb combination of these brilliant object, plus Horia's POV and composition. What is need for masterpiece else? Nothing. My congratulations and TFS.

Its agreat shot Horia
Good sharpness and its on a good background as you say.
Well composed, the polarizer seems to have worked well here.
Fotografia asta mi-a atras atentia pentru ca si eu am intalnit si fotografiat specia asta anul trecut langa Purcareni. N-as putea sa fac diferenta intre un mascul si o femela.
Imi place mult compozitia ta cu apa in fundal si fara nici un element care sa distraga atentia. DOF pe care il obti cu camera veche e de vis. Culorile sunt naturale si stiu si eu cat de fain arata albastrul de pe aripi cand zboara in soare. Merci!
PS: Vroiam sa te intreb mai demult: ce inseamna "O"-urile alea cu + in mijloc din semnatura ta?

Hello Horia. This is a very well detailed and colourful picture. The background is nicely blurred and yet sympathetic to the subject. Excellent.

a wonderful combination of object and background, this lustrous shining damselfly above the waves of muddy waters.
Very well composed, a piece of art.
Thank you! My best regards,
