    After Bifurcators wonderful mini-tutorial on DOF ( http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=128415 post #7 - Thanks Bifur! ), I finally got to my friends house and had a chance to work on it. I think I did ok on this little dragonfly here who was kind enough to pose for me.

    Wow, really nice capture. Excellent focus. My only suggestion would be to drop the exposure in the highlight areas by 1/2 - 2/3 stop and possibly increase saturation a little.

    Very nice, Dmitri.
    I would agree with the comment about saturation, but, just a bump.
    Good job.

    Thanks Tirediron! I'll try that! :biggrin:

    Thanks a lot, SympL! :)

    Thank you much! Good luck on your shots too! They can be hard to find sitting still, but when they do decide to pose, believe me, they don't ask for much money :lmao:
