HI Gary,
Welcome to TN falimy. Excellant capture to start with.You have managed excellant focus on DF's body. Head is a bit in soft focus though. Great sharpness and details. Colors are also nicely captured. I would have liked some notes (Go through Notes/Comments Guildelines) explaining the conditions under which you have taken the pic or some picture info etc. None the less well done.Hope to have your active participation on TN.

Hello Gary, what a good shot to have as your first photo on Trek nature. You have managed to capture a lot of detail in his wings and boby. Good colour. TFS.
Well done.

Hi Gary.
It is a very beautiful capture, lights and composition are outstanding. Very nice work.
I noticed the photo is only 120 Kb. inestead of the 200 Kb. TN offers to you. Try to adjust better the jpg quality using save to web command and you will have less compression noise in you image.
I made a fast workshop, hope you like!
Welcome to TN, hope you enjoy the site.

this is realy clear image and half a stop lower and it would have been a perfect exposure, simple and beautifully composed.

Hi Gary,
I love your wonderful dragonfly, it's a very good shot and you captured it very well.
Thanks and a warm welcome here, enjoy the time

Hello Gary,
Welcome to TN!
It is good to see your first picture of a dragonfly, and that too from Bahrain!
A well composed sharp and crisp image from a very good perspective.
Well done and looking forward to your forthcoming pictures.
