Some minor correction in Levels and Curves to restore the white balance and to make the foreground pop a bit better :)

I played with the Levels in PS in order to brighten the middle ground here and get some more depth and a better feel of that distant mist in the air.

Hope you like it :)

Thanks to Nigel (merlin) who posted the other workshop, i found out that this Tibial spine or hook you see here is what setts this species apart from the very similar Plebejus idas.

I decided to post another shot with a higher magnification to help others better see what he meant.

Thanks again friends for your help!

On a dark, rainy day, and if you're lucky to catch some mist, you have plenty of drama in yours shots, providing you have enough time to look for good composition and constantly wipe your lens/filters :)

Just tweaked the levels and added a cooling filter...nothing more.

This was to re-give the blue-ish tint in the dragonfly's eyes.

Hope you'll find it useful.

I darken the farther field and the trees in order to get purer blacks in the scene. Also tried to increase (just a little bit) the contrast in the FG, brightening up the ice and darkening the grass.

...perhaps a more personal idea on this scene.

I'm sorry...i couldn't resist...i had to try this :)

The texture of the iris and that big vertical pupil are too beautiful so that i removed that flash reflection that was distracting.

Hope you'll find it useful.

Here is a side view of the same specimen as in the regular post.

Note the brighter spot on the side of the thorax - typical for the identification of this species.
