Four Spot Chaser 1

By ade123
Four Spot Chaser Dragonfly.
The dragonfly allowed me to get very close and i would have loved to have been able to move the grass in the foreground but would
have certainly scared it off so apologies for the clutter.
Many thanks for your comments & votes on the female bullfinch and i hope you enjoy the Four Spot

Two excellent, beautifully presented shots. That grass is not clutter, it is context!

Really nice sots Ade.

I think though that the framing doent work to complement the subject, it dilutes it. Using the dominant colour from the image in a large frame has the effect that the subjects get lost and overwhelmed.

Ive uploaded a mod to show the difference. I also did a few tweaks, the insect has a little more contrast, and the background blurred; exposure is increased. The yellow of the buttercup can cause the camera to underexpose.
