Hi Francisco

Superb macro - fantastic detail and lighting.

Best wishes


Hello Francisco,
You've been caught also by the "dragonfly TN effect, huh?
Is that these insects are true works of art in structure and details refer!

Yours is a very delicate picture with details poorly recorded, excellent cut and an impeccable background. Good work. Very attractive to the eye.

NOTE: I write in English because I'm not sure the google translator is very good for the Portuguese.

NOTE 2: I'm no good for the ID of these insects. I do not find a website that has pictures of classified information and support. If I find, I'll tell you.

Hello Mello

This is a classical posting of a dragonfly close-up. It can hold hands with some of the
best I've seen on TrekNature. Technically you've done well Francisco. The DOF was
just right to make certain that the body and head was perfectly covered by the range
which ensured that the details came out nice and sharp. The OOF and isolated BG
complimented and highlighted the image of the insect. A good composition with the
diagonal placing of the subject and the blade of grass.

Well done and TFS.

Ciao Francisco, fantastic portrait of beautiful dragonfly with wonderful golden colors, aming details and superb sharpness, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
