Hello my friends,
return over this summer with this red dragonfly. I waited what settles(arises) on this dry flower to have a beautiful curve. With this not easy wind, then I have no body in its entirety.
I hope that you will like all the same.
Good weekend

Hello Gaetan.

I like this one very much.
Very nice colors wich fits perfectly with eachother. Sharpness is very good and i like the POV with this nice obelisk statue.
I am curious about the whole dragonfly with this exposure.
Well done.

Bonjour Gaetan,
Encore une image de grande finesse,typique de ton style. J'aime bien le cadrage vertical que tu as choisi et bien sût les teintes subtiles, presque magiques de l'image.
