[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The first image that I have posted here with this beautiful and shinny damselfly was not among the best that might exist. The POV was not good at all, the focus was shallow and mainly on the tip of the wins, in one word, the image was a failure. The advise that I have received was concerning mainly the point of view. Working on that, I hope that there is an improvement. A later view is better that somewhere from behind.
Now it might be that the focus will be in attention. The eyes are not 100% crystal clear ,and to be honest, now, when I am writing I don't know how the picture will look like after I will press "update".

The original image was slightly cropped, added some sharpness and frame.

Buna Oana,
Foarte frumos surprinsa aceasta insecta. Imi plac in mod deosebit culorile, detaliile, perspectiva din care ai surprins-o dar si claritatea. De asemenea fundalul clar evidentiaza bine subiectul.
Numai bine,

Buna Oana,
O imagine de nota 10 in ce priveste claritatea, detaliile culorile si expunerea.

Well done friend Oana! This one is a winner I think! Bravo!

Hi Oana,

Thanks for sharing,

hello Oana
Yes this is beautiful
great sharpness nice pose with good BG and beautiful colours

Hello Oana,

Nice POV. I would have cropped slightly more thus enlarging the focal point (the damsel fly) and it appears a little over sharpened. Note: halo along abdomen and around some of the wing edges. These are really beautiful insects. Use a tripod to obtain sharper images ... these guys will sit all day in a pose just for you (once you sneak up on them!).
