I saw this dragonfly early this morning on this flower. I was a bit surprise as they rarely as I know land and keep still on a flower.

Hi Luis,
Beautiful shot with astounding colours and very sharp detail. I notice there are no shadows in your shot - Do you use a ring flash?

Hi Luis.
This is a great shot,with good detail and composition.Perhaps a little too saturated with colour,but very effective nonetheless.
Well done.

Magnificent colors...wow!!! Fantastic contrast, details and a very, very good macro. Taking into consideration that you didn't use ant flash, it's even more praise-worthy.
A really good work. Thanks for sharing and Bravo again

Hello Luis!
What a beautiful image. I just love the colors, the sharpness and the exposure revealing nicely the detail. I like the tight framing, but since the wings are pointed downwards, I'd rather see the dragonfly positioned a little higher in the frame.

Wow, I need sunglasses to look at this shot!
The colours are so brilliant and this red dragon is wonderful - so sharp and in a beautiful pose. I love it, thanks Luis, a perfect shot

I don't need many words here.
That will do.
Pablo -

Lovely shot! The contrast between the strong reds of the dragonfly, and the green/yellow background is amazing. Sharpness and detail in the body are impressive too. About the only thing I would like (in addition to markula's suggestion) is just a fraction more DOF since the lower wingtip isn't quite sharp - were you out of DOF I don't know since there's no shutter/aperture data? However those are only minor nits, and not enough to stop me adding this to my favourites :D

Excellent colors...great detail...I was struck by this picture. Excellent macro!
It is gorgeous!

Fantastic dragonfly capture! Perfect focus and although the colors are a bit oversaturated, the result is striking.

Nice shot good framing and nice and sharp.
But just a little 2 over saturated for me, try turning the saturation down a bit for a more natural look.


I am amazed at the color of the dragonfly. Good capture. TFS.

GREAT SHOT. Did you do any afterworks regarding the colorisation or not [email protected]

Hello Luis!
Beauty dragonly with well saturated colurs. Details are alos good but there are some places where DOF would be a little better (especially an the wings):)
Best greetings,
