Perfect Ricardo, great capture even on the large version the details are good.
Well done

Wow!! Perfection - details and pose are fantastic :)

Well worth a 'smiley'. Detail and colours are good, you've caught that metallic sheen really well.

A worthy 100. Congratulations.
Ricardo, you're a master with these shots. Brilliant job. Straight into my favourites. 20 points if I could.

Congrats on your 100th! Very well done, delicate, sharp and colorful.

Superb detail, especially on the wings. Clearly your Cannon is a superior camera with an excellent lens. Nevertheless, it takes skill to get this close to the subject to produce such an amazing image. Your skill has improved greatly in the few months I've been in TN and you have provided me with a lot of pleasure in sharing the fauna and flora of Argentina. I hope you publish many more, well done and congratulations on number 100.

Excellent shot Ricardo! This is one that really benefits from the large view with the great detail seen. May I ask what type of macro lense or set-up your are using to get your shots? Congratulations on your 100th! Thanx for all your input over the last few months. It has helped me tremendously.

Ricardo, an image for national geographic. Excelent details, sharp, crisp image.
Well done

Actualmente, 100 de 104 fotos que provienen de Argentina han sido enviadas por Ricardo. Si una imagen vale mil palabras, Ricardo nos escribió aquí fabuloso capítulo de un libro sobre la historia natural reciente de su país. Creo que debemos serle agradecidos de allí. ¿ Gracias por haberse quedado sobre TN, Ricardo, preparado para otro capítulo?

A great post!

Until now, 100 of 104 photos resulting from Argentina were sent by Ricardo. If an image is worth one thousand words, Ricardo wrote us here a fabulous chapter of a book on the recent natural history of his country. I believe that we have to be grateful to him for it. Thanx for have stayed on TN, Ricardo, ready for another chapter?

Great post my Friend.
Congrat to the 100, I look forward to the next 100.
Your LP is fantasic.
Excellent work.

It is big, it is bold, it is a great photo. The head is a little soft in focus but it is fantastic.

Well done Ricardo on your 100th post thank you for all your efforts on TN.

Grande Ricardo, parabéns por mais esta foto, a de número 100. Todos nós sabemos o quanto você tem nos ajudado e colobarado para o crescimento de TN.

Que mais centenas de fotos venham.



Dos puntazos muy bien merecidos para esta, y considerando ese F5, 2 mas. Excelente presentación, con una bella composición y unos colores sobresalientes. El único punto debil es la profundidad de campo, pero por el resto para hacer una reverencia. Tendré que esmerarme para no desmerecer :D
Gracias Ricardo.

You do this 100th post with style and such a fabulous LP version. Ricardo, thank you for all the contributions and effort put into this site. I appreciate every bit of it. Congratulations.

the choice of the panning is indeed nice, I suppose that the clarification doesn't have the easy being, very great shot Ricardo

Yes, Ricardo, I do like it. Your damselflies have won me over.

No solamente la modelo sino tambien la resolucion y la coloracion. No hay nada malo en la foto. Es increible.

Dos de mis camaras son Canon y para mi siempre son el complemento de una buena fotografia.
Felicitaciones y si esta es la # 100, no puedo esperar a ver las que vienen
Ps. Happy New Year and Lots of Health and Happiness

Hi Ricardo, thanks for your recent comments on my blue-tailed damselfy shot. This one is excellent. I like your panoramic style composition here with the curve of the leaf along the bottom. Also you have captured a very good pose and the details and colours are very good. Great work on all versions and TFS.

Hello Ricardo,
I'm always impressed by drafonflies shots. This one is the most impressive I've ever seen. There are so many details in the large version! The colors are beautiful and the composition is excellent.
Good job!
