    The detail on the body and wings is wonderful.

    I am wondering why you chose the aspect ration that you did. The background is very busy and cluttered and perhaps it dsitracts our attention away from the main subject - the dragonfly.

    I see that you used an aperture value of f10. If you had opened it up a bit you would have got more blur into the background

    I am sorry Donald.I can understand your point.I had no other way to avoid distracting background as the Dragonfly was very close to ground filled grass.I had to choose an aperture of 10 as anything less could spoilt the details of the insect.Thank you very much for your valuable opinion.

    Really well done! I don't blame you for wanting to get as much detail in the dragon as possible, you can always easily tone down the background in post processing but you can never recover lost detail in the subject. Fascinating how just the wing tops are clear of colour.
