Blue Dragonfly
Lens: Pentax SMC F 100-300 Camera: K-30 Photo Location: Nagle Dam, South Africa ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F8

My first attempt at posting a photo on the forum.
This nice blue dragonfly caught my attention while out fishing.
Being a newbie to digital photography I am still getting to grips with
my K-30 and post-processing, so any critique would be appreciated.
The image was heavily cropped and reduced, with light sharpening.

Thank you Eaglem. I've admired your beautiful rose images for some time.
