I love how you've separated the dragonfly from the background with the shallow depth of field.

I would slightly adjust the light for a more accurate rendering dragonfly - definitely a good shot!

I understand your comment. The thing is, the color is very close to the color of the creature that day, in that light. Dragonflies have a marvelous range of colors.

I will try your suggestion to see what happens. Also remember different monitors render differently. My monitor is calibrated with Xrite Display so the photo may not look quite the same on yours if it is not calibrated.

Well thank you for the suggestion and the example. Your sample is very attractive but I still prefer the original processing because I can see more of the details on the wings and thorax. Anyway, it is always worthwhile to get others opinions. Thanks again.

Thanks Madhur. I do not use the TC much but it does add something even to these shorter lenses.
