Nice capture and wonderful pose, nice bokeh.

I think the shot could be improved by moving the crop so that the dragonfly is positioned more to the right of the frame, leaving more empty space on the left. Also it looks a bit flat, a small levels and or contrast adjustment could make this shot pop.

Very nice detail Ken, this obelisking pose is quite the norm in the hot summers we are experiencing in the south.

Nice DOF and composition. I like the feeling of this shot a lot.

Welcome to Trek Nature. Excellent first post.

Great composition, looks a bit oversharpened and saturated for my tastes but the capture is fantastic. It looks a bit like a painting.

Would like a few more notes on equipment and processing done.

I like this shot a lot. The bright white object in the lower centre is a bit distracting and would perhaps look better cloned out. There is also something strange looking just to the left of that and arcing towards the right, like something was cloned out of the shot?

Incidentally they use sugar to simulate waterfalls like this in movies where they are using a model landscape. Well they used to before the advent of computer animation.

Lovely light and composition. TFS

Now what plant is it? The leaves look a bit like Tecoma stans, but I don't think it grows up there.

Wonderful composition and focus Kaan. A really nice shot all around.

I do believe these are Hoverflies though, not bees.

Thanks for sharing.

Welcome to the forum Pam. This is a pretty moth, much nicer than the old brown ones I seem to be getting..

As others have mentioned the focus is a bit soft and there seems to be a bit of background noise. Since you are using PS6 you might want to download Neat Image which is free to try and will work on photos 1028 pixels or smaller. It is best to do the processing of the photo at the largest size possible and then after you reduce it to the 800 pixel dimension go in and apply a small unsharp mask (UM) to bring back the sharpness lost in resizing. The nice thing with PS is you can fade the filters, this includes any contrast adjustment, any UM, even the Neat Image noise reduction filter.

Joe, this is one of the best Damselfly shots I have seen. Even the more remarkable in that you aren't using a DSLR. Your Canon S3 IS did a nice job, or should I say you used the tool very well.
