    I'm really liking your photos even if this one didn't rank - so I'll say congrats all the same.

    Great shot of the bug! I love the sharpness, color and DOF. I don't see how the edges are being used for effect here.

    Wonderful capture, great lighting and perfect focus. Impressive.

    I'm missing the edge bit I think. But as a photo, I like the colour, the good bokeh, the graceful wings. I'd add a bit to the top of the frame and call this a great shot.

    Good attempt but IMO you don't need the part of the fence on the left. The pink is a little bright, but another angle wouldn't give you the Edge. I think he is smiling at you, good luck.

    I like the way the wings hug the upper edge. Nice take on the topic.

    there is too little of the dragonfly
i would have cropped in portrait and touched the wing edges to the lh and rh edges
leveled the picture to same as the wings making a "T" of the image

    Like the delicacy of wings, the sharpness of the subject and the framing. I like the extra piece of railing on the left as it helps the balance and helps explain what the dragonfly is standing on. The blues of the wings and the metal are beautiful.

    Yes kudos to you, the only time I managed to photograph one of these critters was when it was half dead, floating in my pool. In my faves.
