a critique comment: like the image not only for the robin, which always seems to attract attention, but also for the upper background. The image is sharp and very well exposed. But for me the image consists, at least that is how I perceive it, of four parts competing for the eye's attention: the lovely upper background, the lower, bit duller background, the stake, and the main subject, the robin. Maybe by a simple more panoramic cropping one could reduce the role of the duller lower background and the stake.
Many thanksl for your comments and for your votes; as with **** I am also curious to see what modification work Lynne had done with it. I realize the small portion the human element has in the mainly landscape matter. Didn't even attempt to search for a crop that would emphasize the searching people party though realizing they are a very important part of the image or maybe the most important; I mean to say: leave them out and the image becomes far less interesting. In order to make their presence felt I uploaded the image as large as could be by making the image panoramic.
Can you make a great shot of despair? It drips from the image like the streaks - are they blood or tears - on the door she sits against and the street is wet. There is only one niggle to despair you: would have liked to see her a little bit out of the center by cropping a little from the pavement.
like this image and as said especially for the watercolour suggestion; seen in that light, it is sharp enough; and indeed monopods and tripods are cumbersome tools in macrophotographing those little beasties that tend to fly away on approaching; as said, the dragonfly can be easy as it sometimes stays in place until you try to kiss it. I have also noticed with the damselflies that they sometimes tend to persistently return to the spot they just sat on. In such a situation a tripod can be ideal to take a pinsharp image of them > so, this one well done, like it and could be a sort of raw material for a print.
