Orange dragonfly at the park near my house.
Cropped, resized, selected the dragonfly using the magic wand tool, inverted and then removed the yellow from the rest of the photo to desat. Curves, noise ninja, save for web.

I am giving this the highest score I ever have......9 (just to let you know I have never given a 10, and very few nines)

This is a good macro but on my screen I'm sorry, but it looks a little over-sharpened. I wonder if cropping a chunk off the left may have given it a bit better composition? I actually like the OOF of the wing tips. Good luck

Quite pretty, but I feel that with the eye partially desaturated it is missing something. Love the angle though, and the way the wings kind of 'vanish' both toward and away from you.

The picture is nice, but does not work with desaturated background.
