[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A dragon fly perched on a stick. The shot is a bit blurry because I was using 300mm lense with a 2x teleconverter.
If I used a higher f/stop e.g. 16+, would the shot be more in focus?

Nice capture none the less. The DOF is very good.

A higher fstop might help but then the dragon fly would have to sit still for the extra bit of time. The extra glass in the way can also have an effect on your sharpness.

I posted a workshop to improve the sharpness and contrast a bit. Hope you like it.

Hi Giuseppe,

Nicve try to get the dragonfly caught. A pitty that you missed the focus a bit.
