Congratulations Lydia. The softness of the background is a nice contrast to the sharpness of the dragonfly.

Oh way to GO, Lydia! I bet you were bouncing around over 7.00 all week too! This deserves a 7+ score for sure. Congratulations on another honorable mention!

Beautiful capture Lydia. Congrats on a nice placement. Love the composition on this gem.
Edit to say: the dragonfly is one of my faves, my little sis always sends me dragonfly art when she finds it. In fact I just received a piece of pottery from her this week.

I'm still admiring the wing detail, and once again get cranky when I see the ridiculously low scores... there is just NO excuse for those.
