Hi All

Your continued support is amazing and very much appreciated, thankyou.

This image of a Dragonfly isn't particularly sharp, it was a long way away, but thought I would have a pop at it anyway, wasn't helped by this cold wind we have at the moment, blowing it's perch about, but I hope you like it anyway.

Regards

Jackie

Considering you took this at a telephoto end of your zoom it looks pretty sharp to me, certainly better than most of my efforts. Nice work.

love the way the focal length used has thrown out the background to a blurr suits the shot so well and helps to sharpen the outline good detail and colours i love it

Love the composition and colours, One tip for you Jackie! If you have Photoshop or other softwear, try using high pass sharpening on the image, it will make a difference to sharpness, it will even to some extent sharpen out of focus images, not saying yours is out of focus, try it if you have it, if not allow Modds and let someone have a go.

Regards

Trev.
