    Congrats on your top 4 finish. Good to show leading lines coming out of the photo. I never thought of that approach.

    I'm not usually a fan of insect photos but this is really good.

    I like it. I would have cropped just below the top of picket 4 and half way on the long side going down, but otherwise very nice.

    I love the idea of the lines leading forward to the dragonfly. Great use of DOF. High in my faves.

    ... of course that should have been 'visual design features'

    I like this, there is a sense of humour about it that may not have been intended. Diagonals are always strong visual den features....

    This was a rail along a pedestrian walk over a large pond. I tried to get a shot with the normal lines and the dragonfly face, but didn't have a boat. 😌

    I've never experienced leading lines coming from the background so well, to lead the eye to the subject. Thanks for the experience. I've leaned something new - this worked very well.

    Great photo, what did you put on the fence post to attract the dragonfly?!
Nice and sharp on the dragonfly and like the gentle blur.
Had you considered a horizontal flip? As most people scan photos from left to right, then the blurred fence posts would have led the eye down towards the dragonfly.

    Great shot, and a creative approach to LLs. Light area at left usually would be distracting, but here it helps form a frame around the dragonfly; also picks up some of the same colors- nice!

    Could have been just another shot of a fence, or a shot of a dragonfly. But together it's wonderful. Very high in my TT. I wish I shot this.

    A fun photo reminds me of summer with the white picket fence and a smiling dragon fly... in top 5
