I wonder if you will ribon with this one. If not for the focus on th nose of the dragonI would guess that you would. I will give you an 8.

I would never have known that a dragon fly had so much detail to photograph. The hot spot at the head, and a tighter crop than ideal will hurt the score a bit, but this is an amazing shot. 8

Stunning. The colours and textures are captivating. Might even scrape in as being relevant to the challenge :)

Seems a bit out of focus, and maybe trying to fill more of the shot with the wings than the body of the insect would get the point across better.

Color seems a little forced on the eyes (IMHO) but great detail on the wings

A little overexposed on the top of the shot ... whatever he's standing on (looks like a nail?) seems a bit washed out. Otherwise a great shot of the dragonfly. :)

I see the branching ... I feel the lighting/processing is a bit harsh.

I like that you did something different. Maybe a little more of the dfly's wings would have made the composition of the shot more pleasing. Still a very interesting shot and a good detail. Nice Job.

Althought I find the very top (white branch?) distracting, what a cool macro.

meets challenge but image seems both over sharpened and out of focus. Good idea for the challenge topic. Colors well done.

nice macro, too much reflection, otherwise nicely done

I'd pull back a bit to get entire wings. Great detail!

This is such awesome macro and wow.... what a specimen! He is branching alright. Good color and composition - perhaps do not cutt the wings off next time.... good job though
