    Which of these two shots looks better. One was taken from above, the other from an angle with a different color and mood.

    I know its not the same picture, but it it just different angles of one dragon fly so I hope thats still following forum rules :)

    I like the first better. The angle makes it flow. The second one is kinda just there... like, oh there's a bug. the first one makes you look at it like wow that's a cool insect/dragonfly
    his wings also look more dynamic

    I think the first works better as far as coloring is concerned, it doens't blend as much with the background. You might try a tighter crop on this, and a bit of sharpening as well.

    I definately like the first picture more, and I think the cropping you did helps with the composition. I'm not sure I care for how sharp it is however, especially when looking at the splits in the wood. You might also try adjusting the curves to bring back some of the detail in the highlights of the wood that look a little washed out.
