Hi Juan.
Your dragonfly picture is simply blameless. All is the best: impressive POV, great DOF and excellent details on entire image, nice lighting and pleasant natural colours. The composition of the picture is precise as well as the cropping. My congratulations. Superb job. Only "Medium" has been marked incorrectly. Should be mark as "Colour".
Yours Alexei.
