[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
Name : Dragonfly - Aeschna Cyanea
Note : This dragonfly was old and dying. It trembled because it was with end of force and did not react correctly.
It was wedged on this plum of reed, which enabled me to make this original photo.
Then it hung on the shirt of my son and it died...

Bonita imagen Christian.
La posicion del insecto entre las finas ramas tan claras, producen un efecto muy bello.
Muy buena perspectiva y colores tambien.
Bien hecho!
Me atreví a realizar un trabajo... espero sea de tu agrado.

Pretty image Christian.
The position of the insect between the fine so clear branches, produces a very beautiful effect.
Very good perspective and colors also.
Well done!
I dared to make a workshop, I hope you like it.

WOW! Amazing composition. The details are sharp. Nice working keeping the plume from overexposing. I know how white they get. Perfect DOF. Great work. Thanx Cristian.

Lovely shot Christian, very good handling of the light. Excellent detail. It's a male, can tell by the, colour, the waist on the abdomen and the 'claws' at the end of the abdomen. Brilliant stuff but I think a photo as good as this deserves a bit more of a note? :-)

Intresting image christian, it seems sharp enough, what intreges me is the colour of the Southern hawker. They seem far to dark the greens should be almost flouresent and the blue of the tail a much brighter blue.also a perching ones I have seen hang vertically, not at an angle.
The lack of detailed note makes judging this difficult.

Great shot again Christian,
Very good capture, great colours, I like it a lot, great job

Christian, This is a beauty. A category of its own. The insect itself is not so spectacular but against this background it is very fine.
Greetings, Jan

Loks like he is on Pampas Grass, but I can see it is something different. Whatever he sits on, it goes well together with his beautiful green body!

A very nice capture.
Composition is excellent and very nice sharp detail.
The blue sky makes an excellent background and contrast.
Very good work,well done.

Christian, The plant and blue clouded sky make this one a special,out of the ordinary shot. Composition, color and detail are excellent! Lets see, how could I have done this better-NOT! Well Done!!

I like your sunglasses in your profile ( I still didn't put one) on the other hand what do you have to hide: your gallery is outstanding and especially this one retained my attention for the silky impression. Sure I will have to come back.

Le contraste de formes, des couleurs et des textures apportent douceur et poésie ŕ cette image bien composée et originale. Bravo, Christian!

Hi christian
Beautiful photo
perfect colposition great shrapnes
good colors

Hello Christian,
A beautiful composition and sharp detail are in abundance in this fabulous image. What are all those feathers? Is it some type of Alpine flower?

Excellent work!



Hej Krystian!
Podoba mi się Twoja kompozycja z ważką. Delikatne kolory dobrze kontarastują na tle nieba. Ważka ostra, a jej skrzydełka działają jak filtry dla trawki.
Gratuluję i pozdrawiam - Roma
