I think this would need to be in perfect focus to work well for me. It is a beautiful dragonfly. the background kind of takes away from his wings though. The lighting was great. As I look at it, it looks like the sharpness of the dragonfly might also be affected by the background. Kind of like the background makes the dradonfly look blurrier than he really is. Not sure. his color is beautiful. certainly better than I could ever do. Great job and good luck in the challenge.

The title detracts from the photo for me.
Nice composition, but out of focus and not enough detail in the wings.

Subject matter is OK. Lighting is OK. Seems out of focus to me.

Ooops. This dragonfly needs focus. I think your camera had a hard time "finding" it. I cannot tell exactly where the focus is. I had similar problems with a golden eagle on a dark background, my camera just wouldn't quite get the right focus. Don't hate me. 4 Swash

focus needs work

lovely colors and composition but I find it out of focus on my screen.

Very poorly done -- blurry/out of focus, poor composition, doesn't meet the challenge.

I like the subject but the quality is just not there

This photo lacks a good focal point... It also doesn't show me much about an impression of childhood... Maybe you had a fascination or fear of bugs as a child :) - jmsetzler

Needed a little more focus.
