well capture no doubt about it. i notice that you are using a 60mm macro lens and 1.4 TC i don't exactly know why you have invested money in this manner because total price of both exceeds the price of a reasonably good 100 mm macro lens. Although you may have a good logic behind it.

your subject in this image is the head of the dragon fly and you have captured very good detail of it's head. again the focus and point of interest is also the head. but you have tried to place it at the center of the frame which is not marking this image as an extraordinary piece of work. placement of the subject at the center of the image does not work well every time so it is better to avoid such kind of placement. compositionally, you could have experimented with the subject because dragon fly often gives many chances to do that. e.g you could have placed the full body of the dragonfly diagonally giving a soft focus to lead the eye to the head of it(sharp focus) maintaining good detail of it's head. It is an example and personally my view you may differ.

Hope it helps,
somnath

Thanks all for your viewing and comments.

Somnath:
The reason for using 1.4TC: This was bought much earlier for my other telelens.
Yeah, in fact I took many shoots including what you have suggested and it turn out quite well. However since I can only post one pic in a week, I intentionally choose this pic which (I think) still have rooms to improve. I treasure the free advise from the members here and do not want to waste the opportunity to improve my skill.
Thanks all again.
