    Woa the colors remind me of pencil and paper. Personally it's not doing a whole lot for me, maybe as a print it would be more impressive.

    I like this - inventive idea and the diagonal line of the grass(?) works very well. I am curious as to how you captured the shot - the background looks too clean and the reflections lacking in ripples for it to be water.

    If I was to have a problem with it I would say that I would have prefered to have had the angle as such that the whole insect was in the plane of focus- though I do admit getting a long bug like a damsel is often very tricky.

    Jeph, Ocular - Thanks and appreciate yopur comments


    I captured as it is. If I were to titled it "tranquillity", that may say alot about the stillness and calmness of the water. I have seen landscape with almost near to perfection of reflection and its almost near unbelievable.

    And thanks for your input.
