Love this one.  Amazing that at 1/1250th the wings still blur, eh?  Thanks for posting the camera settings.  That makes it that much more interesting to us camera geeks!
Yes, but what would  surapon  say ??  :D

Thanks Rusty, at 1/1600th it froze the wings in the previous image but I really wanted to try and convey the motion, just a little bit so I decided to start stopping down the shutter speed.  1st adjustment to 1/1250 did it!  I was hoping to see some motion but not lose to much detail... Thanks again!  :)

After taking another look at this image, I revisited my processing and decided to bring the exposure back up closer to where I started at out of camera.  Initially I didn't like all the green reflections on the water, it just seemed to busy as I remember, the wrong type of contrast for my likings...

lifting the exposure back up, I kind of like it better now.  Odd isn't it?  Why just a couple of weeks ago, I looked at the original image and thought, yuck, too much green... Now I look back and think, my, that's too dark, too black... I'm thinking this is a happy median.  Almost back to original exposure to bring out the vivid colors and textures but not quite so much that it spoils everything..

Perhaps I should revisit older images more often! lol! 

All the best!  :)

Butterflies... End of the season...
I don't know if I ever posted this second image before, but if you look closely, he/she is relieving himself!  lol, never gave it much thought but seeing it after uploading images to my pc, I got a good laugh!  If I did post it before, my apologies!

Thanks Ken, it's always good to see nice dragonfly images, mind you, I might get jealous :P. One thing I've been playing wtth recently in Lightroom, is reducing HSL of certain colours and green was one I was playing around with. If you're usnure whether or not the green is too much, it might be worth a play.

Yes, I'll look further into it.  Sometimes I just cannot decide.  The very first image I ever took with my 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II was a dragonfly image I took several years ago, the same day I received the lens.  I'll post it here and you'll see what I mean, I just couldn't decide about the green.  I even did a B&W rendition of it...

The greens couldn't be helped, as the creature landed on a single blade of grass in my backyard, down deep in the grass... Perhaps jumping into the HSL settings would have offered some better options to "tamper' it down a bit...

I've attached the "green" photo and the b&w for comparison...

Of course it complicates things when the dragonfly decides to use green as its primary colour :P. I think the only way would be to duplicate the layer, then use a mask or eraser after toning it down in the background.

This green image is so cool. The framing is excellent and the look in the dragonfly┬┤s eyes is just wonderful. A clear 5 star!

I agree with Eldar.

I prefer the color version also. Nice work.

I may try that Richard, sounds like a good idea!  Many thanks! :D
