    I guess it's about how serious you wanna improve or pursue the ability to express your work.

    I myself have encounter some who wants an immediate settings to reach some particular effects.

    Taught and show them many times, bring them to shoot, show them how to process step by step for a few hours,

    Still they can't achieve (and i don't mean they die die must process the same way as me, but they did ask how i do it)

    For example, landscape. They simply have no patience to wait for the best light, no discipline to wake up to capture the golden hour and no patience to processed them.

    If so, then why start?

    That, one has to ask himself/herself.

    That's no right or wrong if one is not interested in a particular genre/hobby/etc.

    I like it that i can managed to get the focusing right, eyes sharp. What i don't like is that the lighting is harsh but bo bian last minute use pop up flash diffuser that doesn't really work. But of course i feel that it's not the flash fault but mine, maybe i should have gone without the flash and raise ISO a bit i should achieved a better result and if not at least i can say i've tried.

    Composition wise of course can improve by making the DF more perpendicular instead of a bit tilted.

    But if my eyes are not playing tricks on me, the insect eyes are not in focus.

    The post may be difficult to find.

    I think he said he went to the same spot after work everyday to learn how to shoot and understand macro photography.

    You can apply this to your photography.

    my 2 cts...

    you've cropped the wings and subject is too centered.

    as you've mentioned, do watch the light and exposure. Not a bad effort in terms of exposure, but the problem may be more of the composition. How do you think would showcase the subject better?

    Never check in camera. The LCD can trick u. The brightness is also not exactly correct. You'll need to check on the computer and histogram for best correct confirmation.

    If i can go down lower and show it's face i believe i can show the beauty of the DF. Another way of composition i believe is parallel which i did shoot too but i chose this as in this photo can show both the DF's eyes which i find is the nicest part of the DF. (Besides it's color.)

    One thing is i didn't calibrate my moniter so i don't dare to check using comp. Getting new comp/moniter soon just that don't know when...

    You only like it because the eyes are sharp.......

    What you what to see me thru this image????

    The background, the angle you choosen, the composition, and the cut off wings, all those unable to fully showcase the beauty of the dragonfly.
