btw, to share your pics, use a smaller size like 600x480. besides reducing the filesize, most people would be able to see it without using horizontal scroll.
For me, most photos here look great; typical fascination of a newbie! But in personal preference, I think yours captured a good wing spread; mine looks like a tired dragonfly who has just completed a marathon.icer said:I seldom post my photos here but I took one that looks exactly like your dragonfly too. Any comments? Me also newbie.
Yah, I was really quite close and this dragonfly is on a plant above the pond. I was hovering above the pond and trying my best not to fall inside. I did cropped too but lucky the lighting was good so I am able to capture it quite clearly. Cropping it shows more details of its body and wing.Clark75 said:For me, most photos here look great; typical fascination of a newbie!

Did you do a lot of cropping for yours? Was wondering how you got so close. Maybe as approach from behind has more stealth! (No lah, we all know they have thousands of eyes and can even see almost 360 degrees.)
Wow, you very pro. We newbie mah!y0ngcheng said:wah dragon fever here is it? can i join too? hehe
Clark75, interesting pose u get there! but can try going closer to it for bigger magnification
icer, great effort for ur shots! 1st shot is interesting. ur 2nd shot background is too distracting, try look for a cleaner background next time.

How do you make your background so dark? You use flash?
