Red Dragonfly - A right little poser

By Humblebee
Hi everyone, I would like to thank all of you for your comments and votes on my last upload ... another dragonfly and give my very special thanks to Netta (Netta1234) and Camellia (powerderpuff) for their much prized UA's GrinGrinGrin

I am still decorating and as a result not on site much, so please forgive me if I only leave a vote. Hopefully this situation will last for a few more weeks a month tops - she says with everything crossed. Grin

A bit burn out at the bottom here Carol,
but the dragonfly is well coloured and detailed.
(Besides,I can live with a bit of burnt out bottom !!)

You are so right, Mick Sad - So I have gone back to see if I could recover some of the detail and colour of the wall, and have been amazed that it was actually possible so have now put up V2 Grin

v2 is a very good improvement, Carol. Always worth under-exposing to keep the highlight detail and putting light back into the shadow areas. If the detail is burnt out it's gone forever.

Yes an improvement with V2 Carol.
Surprising what a bit of sun tan lotion
can do to stop the burn out !!

It is V2 for me also. People are more forgiving on images that are too dark than they are too bright.
The actual Dragonfly looks amazing as the detail and colours look the business!WinkGrin

Beautiful Carol, the dragonfly itself is spot on.

Hope you're well & the family also?
