Thank you. Ive done quite a bit of post processing on this one. Obviously there is the selective colouring, then there also general toning, but most of the work involved rotating the little finger slightly, as it stuck out at an angle that just looked weird.

It's very nice.
I'm using at Pentax camera, what macro lens would you recommend, if any?
Reply
:iconmessiahkhan:
MessiahKhan Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2007   Photographer
Thank you. I really don't know much about Pentax stuff at all im afraid. Im not sure if you can get it in the right mount, but if you can, have a look at the Sigma 105mm and 150mm.

I really enjoy the contrast here. The idea is incredible as well. I can agree with the statement concerning the head of the dragonfly needs to be more in focus. DOF just needed to be a stop higher.

MessiahKhan Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2007   Photographer
Cheers. Yeah, in hindsight I could have stopped down a stop or two. But I think I was a bit too excited at the opportunity to check the settings etc, lol.
