    Butterflies and Dragonflies

    Recently I have been gleening images from what I shot over the summer. These images are from those. C&C welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for viewing.

    Some lovely images Joes. Thanks for sharing! I especially like the fourth, but wonder if it is possible to do some burning on the flower head though as at the moment it draws my eye away from the dragonfly.

    Nice little series Joe. I agree with Trace about the flower head, actually a sopt or two in each image could use a toning down somewhat. I take it the light was a bit harsh? You have done well and a slight adjustment and they will be for me a bit better.

    Hello Trace, thank you for viewing and commenting. Your suggestion is right on point, I plead being lazy. Most of my images are works in progress. I did some more work on it, posted below is what I have done.

    Hello Paul, thank you for viewing and commenting. Regarding the light... I would say, when is the summer time light in Florida not harsh. It is a constant problem for certain colors. As I wrote to Trace, the images are works in progress. Everytime I look at them I seem to see ways to improve them as my skills improve.
