Very nice picture of this dragonfly. Colors and details are extremely good. Surprisingly clean for ISO800. Very good note. TFS

The colours and tones make this look alien. Very clean crisp focus.Having nothing in the background sure makes the details on this show up good.

This is almost becoming routine for you Ken. Another awesome macro of another dragonfly. The shot is very well presented with absolutely excellent detail and colour. Excellent depth of field as well - f8 is working for you. Enjoyed the workshop as well.
A magnificent shot of this female Roseate Skimmer and great to see how you applied the advice you recently received on macro photography. That's the way to go my friend. What really makes it praiseworthy (IMHO) is because so many times we see after people received good advice how it's just thrown in the water and never applied. The aperture went smaller for a better DOF, the shutter speed unfortunately came down due to the greater need for light, and although you had to counter this with a much higher ISO setting you still managed to contain or eradicate any signs of noise. Much improved PP work.
The composition is superb with the twig running through the angle at the bottom right hand corner and the insect filling the space with even enough free space in front of it. The colours are rich and well defined, the details are excellent and sharp, the BG is magic, and the exposure management was spot-on.
Good work and TFS.

Another one of your exquisite dragonflies. Very neat and sharp image with clear details and lovely colours. The lighting and focus are absolutely spot-on. The BG is great and enhances the beauty and also lets the subjects to stand out providing a neutral base. Excellent POV and DOF and a superb composition. Kudos.

ah oui je vois que tu aimes particulièrment ce sujet :D
Ici ressort fortement un côté métal (naturel ou PP ) intéressant. Le petit plus est la goutte au bout de la queue , qui malheurement n'est pas nette. Joli WS.

Superb sharpness, BG and excellent POV and composition in this shot of a female Roseate Skimmer. No sign of the use of ISO 800 when taking this shot in ambient light!
Well done and TFS!
