  #84 Backyard Wildlife
Entry 13 of 25
   
 
Dragonfly       ©2010 Lo
Panasonic DMC-ZS3       13th place, 45 points
1/160s, f4.8, ISO 80, 278mm, Normal Program, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Cropped, adjusted colour, levels, resized for web. Camera was set on tungsten, which I could have removed, but I liked the effect.       Extra Info: This fellow was extremely co-operative. He kept returning to land on the deck about a foot away. My LCD screen was useless in the afternoon sun, so I crossed my fingers and took the shot.

    Thanks for the comments everyone- I really appreciate them, and next time, fc, I'll be armed with a drop of sugar.

I wish this guy had been a bit brighter, as he pales in comparison to the vibrant entries that were submitted. I had another, more colourful entry, but in the end decided to go with this one.

    Nice and sharp, but I would have liked natural colours more. However, one of my favorites.

    Very nice capture. I wondered why all the blue, until I read about your tungsten setting. This one was clinging to my top ten until my final cut. There were just too many entries with such great natural colors that could not be ignored. Good luck.

    I'm entranced by the wings but bothered a lot by the lack of colour contrast between subject and background.
