Jaap, I may be wrong, but I have the feeling the shot was oversharpened.
Anyway, it's a great capture.
Excellent pov, lighting and composition. I like the bg too.
A well captured Dfly and well composed.
Careful on the super cropping in post pro as one can see the pixels in the background which is not noise, though there are some noise around the end of the body from sharpening after neat image.
The bright colors are OE.
Sorry friend for the critical.
A beauty though.

I like this wonderful dragonfly in excellent sharpness. The colours are pretty and the highlight is this big eye in different colours, beautiful.
I also wanted to show my dragonfly today, but so many perfect ones are there in these days, (I feel like a coward) perhaps tomorrow.
Have a nice evening, bye

Hello Jaap, Despite the technical difficulties, this has clear sharp details and a great POV. Efficient use of F4.2 also.

Nicely captured Jaap,
A bit OE and noisy. The colours are good as is the sharpness and detail. Well composed and framed.
Thanks for posting, have a good weekend.

Excellent pose, remainds me one of fighters from World War II. Good composition and colours, interesting note. Maybe oversharpened a bit but overall I like it.

I have to agree with Livio. The shot seems to be overscharpened and the lines are a bit harsh because of that. Composition and POV are as always very good. Colors are nice too. TFS!

Top om hem zo zonder storen op de foto te zetten.

Hi Jaap, nice composition of this migrant hawker. It's a nice specimen and thanks for the dedication.
I agree with Mike about the pixelation and the dragon being a little OE on the bright areas and I think it is a little oversharpened.

Jaap this is a very nice POV and the details are sharp. Maybe just a tad bright but it could be my monitor. Goed gedaan mijn vriend.
