tout a fait exceptionnelle comme image, voici un exemple de maîtrise photographique. Splendide netteté sur tout l'ensemble, moment de chasse bien saisi, couleurs et lumière parfaites.
Du gros gros travail.

Hi Felipe and Cristina, this is what large posts are all about. This is a beautiful shot and very well presented in this large panorama. The colour and detail can be truly enjoyed in this format. And your timing was excellent.
Excellent composition of the Damsel and the May fly. Very good details. One help how are you posting these large format? Please suggest. Thanks a lot for sharing.

A fantastic LP Felipe. Are you sure you're not the spokesperson for Sony Spain? :)
You remind one in your description that photography should be fun, bravo. This is a prime example of one who knows their camera like the back of their hand..Expert PP completes perfect execution & technique. Always a pleasure & Very well done!

Hola a ambos,
Otra delicia de foto ( y supongo que el insecto lo debe ser para la libélula, ja, ja). Es impactante la calidad, como siempre sucede en vuestras fotos publicadas. De 10.

R.I.P. brave 717 :-)
It is amazing how good photos this cam [with small support of Felipe ;-)] was taking! This one is also great. Sharp in all areas, clear, with very good DOF and not bad at all colours. Sometimes older technology seems to be better than new one. Smells like conspiracy of global corporations :-)

Nice to see you back on TN my friend! I hope you and Cristina are alright and i hope to see you around here more often :)
I also saw that you've poseted a nice fungi picture not long ago (probably i missed it that day when it was posted) but i had a quick look through your galery and i saw you were quite busy posting in the days i was gone.
The particular image attracted my attention, not only because of it's gret subject, but because of the title!
I definitely think your old Sony deserves such an homage, and probably my old Canon S2, too. I took only about 17-18000 shots with it, but i haven't had a single problem with it and just like you, i've dragged it around with me in sand, mud, rain, wind and snow (-20 degrees with factor) and all sorts of other horrible conditions and it still kept going :)
As for the picture itself, yes, i know the "actors", but i an't get enough of them!
Both Calopteryx and Epheropterans are splendid insects and to see mother nature at work with them as subjects is always impressive.
Your result here is impeccable in means of sharpness and level of details in both the small photo as well as the LP. The colors are wonderful and superbly saturated and the DOF that you used is perfect for the shot - keeping everything important into excellent focus.
Not to forget, the "extramundi" trade-mark flash management that just brings out the best of all the subjects! ;)
BRAVO and TFS
