[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This friendly dragonfly is one of the last this year.
I wonder, there are still a few alive, we have under zero -3 Degree Celsius in the nights.
But I have seen 2 of my favourite insects today - and we have the 12. of Novemer - unbeleavable! (In the last years we had 1 meter snow in these days here in the south of bavaria!!!)
I've been so happy.
This one was resting on the hand of my husband Stephan. I hope to see their kids again next year.

I wish you a wonderful weekend.

Hello Sabine!
Wonderful passport photo of dragonfly;)I liked DOF you managed,civid colors,sharpness,POV,clear details,big eyes and composition a lot.TFS...:-)

Very nice use of flash, you got plenty of details, but not too much light. I am afraid that the "red eye reduction" did not work very well this time :D
Have a nice weekend!

Yes Sabine, winter is closer and closer. This year also in Poland isn't bad - still Indian summer, still no snow. Lucky shot with perfect close-up of dragonfly eyes. Well done!

Sabine, you did an excellent job.

Great sharpness, pov and composition.

I like colors and bg too. Stunning and great details.

Love this red color Sabine. Excellent detail in your headshot. Very well done & Thank You.

Hallo Sabine,
da hat Dein Mann aber ein reizendes Tierchen auf der Hand. Ich befürchte, daß es die letzte Libelle dieses Jahr war. Ab Mittwoch können wir mit Schnee rechnen. :-( Hast übrigens Recht, vor einem Jahr hatte wir schon reichlich Schnee. Habe dieses auf Fotos festgehalten.
Zu Deinem Foto brauche im Grunde genommen nichts groß sagen - wie üblich erstklassige Arbeit. (ich habe ein sehr ähnliches Portrait, daß ich irgendwann in den kommenden Wochen poste) Wünsche Dir und Stephan noch ein schönes Restwochenende.

Hi Sabine

I think you outshine me with this shot of the dragonfly. Great DOF and POV. Wonderful.

Nice detail, a very good close up, if I could make just one suggestion, reduce the saturation just a hair to lighten the red in the background, would focus the viewers attention more clearly towards the front.


Hi Sabine,
WOW! extreme closeup here. Awesome colors, and sharp detail. Sorry for the short note, on a road trip to Florida. I am somewhere in N. Florida on my laptop. Nice shot!

Hi Sabine,
very good macro, unusual eyes. I like the colours and sharpness also. Very good job.

Hi Sabine,
This is very close. Well composed, good details, great POV and DOF. Maybe the saturation is a bit high.
Very well done.
