You did well with this capture and the exposure is good. Your DOF is fine and POV is about the same height as my posting today. :) :)
A reduced flash, called fill flash, might have exposed the legs under the wings that are shaded by the rock.
Well done on this one.

It's a beautiful dragon-fly, Jaap.
I can see that you found one who sat still ;-))
Not easy to get right exposure, with sunny parts in BG and shadows in the FG, but you manage well. But a fill-in flash
had help to do it even better as Mike mention.
Well composed, nice POV and good DOF.
Very well done, my friend.

Deze is volgens mij veel betere dan andere, maar opnieuw zit ik met de subjectiviteit van mensen, maar hij is gewoon zeer goed Jaap, prachtig van kleur en positie.

Very nice capture Jaap, I cant complain about sharpness on this one its very good revealing lots of nice details. Effective DOF and exposure is well balanced. My only nit is that the wing is rather close to the frame. 6/10 Well done.

A very nice capture here Jaap,
The DOF is very good at just F3.2.
The near wings have good detail,the sharpness is excellent.
Great colours this dragon has,its one I've not seen before.
A great shot.

Jaap, I do enjoy the shot. I think sharpness is a winner here; you did a great job with it.
I also pov and the blurred bg.
A great shot.
Quick shot? - Are you joking?
It's so difficult to make such a perfect photo of a dragonfly. I tried it today with a small blue one, we don't have big ones in Germany.
But it was only a try - I'm not satisfied when I see you perfect one. Like it so much and I'm a little bit jealous of :-)
Bye, have a nice weekend

Personal assessment of the photo: excellent. Good DoF indeed. No fill-flash, bravo!
Strong visual impact.
A not easy shot (focus).
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
Personal assessment of the note: complete.
Have a good week in Netherlands MF!
