Grace of a Dragon
1. in what area is critique to be sought?
the processing (i've only added a +15 contrast and the fruit gradient effect)
and which ever aspect
2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
the tiny details in life (in this case, the lines of the dragonfly's wing)
often, the nicest thing on earth is the tiniest details
take a break from our hectic schedule, and you'll realise life isnt as dull as you think it is
3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
armed with just a PnS camera (IXUS 85 IS), i cannot expect to have the amazing details that the DSLR-users are able to snap
i cant zoom too much as details would be loss
so after studying the habits of the dragonflies, i squatted in position for about 30minutes under the hot sun for this one moment...
and i'll say, its worth it..
4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
as mentioned, this picture took quite a lot of sweat from me
this is my 6th photography that i've attempted to capture a dragonfly ...
and my best so far...
contrary to what my friends all say, i"ll continue to work hard and prove that PnS arent just for snapshots
sidenote: btw, this is my first post and first thread
please do advise if i"m doing anything wrong here =)
