I dont need to tell about the specie. There were many posting. But I am always amazed at their activeness and also their structure.

Tried to get in little close without minding the difficulty or getting my dress into dirty. Tried to produce a little closeup's. Hope you all like it.

Curve adjustment done selectively
Four different shots
Edited into one single using Layer concept
All above done in CS3

180mm lens used
Different ISO used

Thanks for looking. My house is still in a mess and if I dont respond to our TN friends photo, please excuse me for another 2-3 days.

A nice presentation of these dragonfly macros Ganesh.
I wish we had more here to photograph.
We don't see them very often.

Hello Ganesan,
a nice collage to show that dragonfly including different point of views and magnifications. Colours, light and background are perfect. Sharpness of the upper right picture could be slightly better.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Ganesh.
Your macro shots are wonderful. You have made a great progress at this type of photography. I like all at collage pictures. POV, large DOF and excellent sharpness/details of the main subject, rich lovely colours and skilful composition. My compliments and good wishes.

Hi Ganesan,
WOW!! Excellent complication of d-fly photos. All are outstanding with excellent detail, POV and color. Very well composed.

Namaste Ganesh,
that's a beautiful collage, I love every single shot and together it's wonderful.

Hello Ganesh,
a great collage!
+++ Brilliant sharpness and detail in every shot. Lovely colours throughout aswell.
--- The dragonfly on the bottom-left is a different species to the others.
Nice shot anyway.
Well done,

A very nice four panel with good notes as well. Very nice editing work. All images are of same contrast and color. Well done.

Hi Ganesan and sorry for the delay

This is a very beautiful collage of this wonderful species and a good series of macro shots.
I like all of them, but i must say that i have a clear favorite among them - the lower left corner...i find that photo to be simply stunning!
Good work and good luck with all your house work.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Narayanan,
Just marking this post and will be back with a proper critique. Facing internet problem, hence doing a short job.
