    I wish the dragonfly was in the upper left part of the photo. It's a nice capture...could use a touch more contrast and saturation.

    What kind of camera did you use?

    I like the detail of the wings and eyes. But I agree that it could use a touch more saturation.

    +1 on the upper left, but otherwise a very clear, nice shot of the dragonfly. The wings on this one are something else.

    Thanks. What do you all think of it like this?

    Here are the details:
    Camera: OLYMPUS IMAGING CORP.
    Model: E-510
    ISO: 100
    Exposure: 1/250 sec
    Aperture: 6.3

    Oh, I wanted to ask how you all knew it would look better it the top left hand corner? I'm was just wondering if there's a rule or is it just something you all can see?

    You want your subject looking into the frame, not out of it.

    Awesome!

    I love it. I'm so intrigued with all the detail, especially the tiny little hairs on the legs. And his eyes...just look at those eyes.

    With the extra saturation the photo POPS now!
