Great DOF. I like the diagonal.

I gave this a 9 and thought it would finish much higher. I thought this was a very beautiful capture!

Exactly, about the dragonfly. That single blade is what grabs me, draws me in, holds me; the bokeh is to die for and really forms a lovely stage for the blade. Is this a new lens or just one I haven't paid attention to in your arsenal? (I'd never be able to handhold that sucker and I'm too lazy to carry a tripod, but it does have remarkable bokeh!) The dragonfly is a spectacular addition to all of the above. This would have been an excellent entry for Zen as well - very peaceful and restful.

Man, what a rip off. It deserved front page. I only gave two 10's and this was one of them.

Great detail on the wings! I think I might have cropped a bit from the bottom and the left to set him off-center.

Just a bit tighter crop.... Very nice as is but could be better.
