Hi Sabine, this is a great macro-picture and the eyes looks very danger;-)
The sharpness are good, maybe little to sharp or to much cropped.
Anyway its a great macro with nice colours and good POV.
Very well done.

Hi Sabine - the structure in the eyes is amazing. well caught and expressed.

Stephan or Sabine, tel me how you did photo like this. It is fantastic. It is for some biology book about fly eye.

P.S. Who is Wishnu and wo Shiva?

You've got lovely eyes :)

Nicely captured here, what a wonderful macro! So sharp and clear.

Tfs, Yan

Hallo Sabine, da hast Du aber Deine Ausrüstung voll ausgereizt. Einfach toll!!.
Schärfe gewaltig, farblich einwandfrei. Das ist schon ein "Big-One". Danke, ich wünsche Dir noch einen schönen Abend.

I don't know how do you do, but you do a macro that are really incredible! It seems to view this on the microscope!

hi sabine (oder stephan)! :-)
die augen sind einfach super!
einen tick besser finde ich nur noch die bartstoppeln,
als ob sich der fliegende freund schlecht rasiert hätte.
wie kommt man bloß so nah ran?!
schade, dass hier in köln so wenige
libellen herumfliegen.
alles gute, thor.

Πολύ καλή μακροφωτογραφία Sabine έχει όμως αρκετό θόρυβο. Ίσως έπρεπε να χρησιμοποιήσεις κάποιο πρόγραμμα για τον περιορισμό του. (GR)

Bravo Sabine pour cette magnifique photo!! Les yeux sont vraiment impressionnants ; très très belle composition ! BRAOV !!!

hallo Sabine,

absolutes Spitzenmakro, benutz Du einen Ringblitz?

Gruß, Michael

I M P R E S S I V E ! ! !

Hi Sabine, this is an impressive close-up. Ultra sharp eyes considering the shallow DOF. I wonder why I use bellows equipement when you can do that only with lens and close-up attachment. Double reflexions in the eyes, is it because you were using two flash units? Did you sharpen the eyes in PP, or were they sharp like this in the camera?
Really great job and TFS

Hola Sabine: super!, wow!, impressive, this goes a lot beyond what my eyes can see, I will try to remind all these details next time that a dragonfly observes me fixedly. Excellent details very well captured, thank you to share. Cordial greetings. *Ninfa Urania*
