Hi Alia
What a great shot!
Perfect details and colors.
Amazing POV and BG.

This is a fantastic capture of this Demoiselle, Alina.
The sharpness of the image and the subtle colours on the subject are phenomenal. The overall composition is very artistic and a joy to look at.

Hello Alina,
Good catch, with impeccable POV (maybe that's the best of the picture). I think the contrast can be improved by post-processing and make the BG holds less bright gamma. The DOF is perfect and has good details on the bug. Excellent composition undoubtedly. TFS, Regards, Jesús


Hi Alia
