A very minimalist and zen photo capturing a dragonfly at rest on a reed. The B&W presentation also makes it a study of light and shadow. I have two suggestions on how to strengthen the zen haiku feel of this photo. First try to keep that light and shadow aspect of it at minimal which means either cropping or, in this case, changing the angle slightly so that dark foliage does not appear in the frame. Second cropping or having the reeds extend out from the bottom left corner will act as leading lines for the eye to follow and be greeted with the sight of the lone dragonfly.

Wonderful image. The sort of shot I would love to capture and processing that I enjoy.
