Finally...

Finally...It's a commendable effort Alex but a shutter speed of 1/640 is a little low,first of all you really do need a good sunny day to get the shutter speed up then sometimes a macro lens is not the best option for these and dragonfly shot's in flight,i would personally use a 70-200m f/2.8 if i had one,but it is possible to use a macro lens but like i said good light is needed so you can use a high ISO to get the shutter speed up and i would would shoot wide open too,

Eden #4

Eden #4If you want to see GOOD glamour and nude shot's take a look at 500px,you may learn something,the reason you are not getting that much interest is because the shot is not a bad one,it just need's some PP doing to make it pop,and personally the last time i saw nicker's like those was on my wife when she was pregnant,no offence intended,

Eagle Owl

Eagle OwlHi Malcolm,i am going to be totally honest as i see no point in me telling you it's a good shot when it is clearly out of focus,i have looked at your exif and your setting were nearly there,the main reason the image is soft because your ISO was too low for a bird in flight shot,your ISO should have been set at a minimum of 400 just for starter's,then you could go a lot higher depending on light,ISO 100 is not a good setting for bird photography,here are my starter setting's for BIF's ISO 400,AE,Al servo,high speed continuous,centre weighted average (but that's just a personal choice),single central focus point,AWB,

hope that help's,

John.
