I think you just missed the focus on this one - I think it should be the eyes.

nice background. the foreground twig I find distracting, but there is not much you can do about it...better if it was in focus. the dragonfly seems a bit overprocessed/sharpened

Lovely composition with your fly perched along the top thirds line. You caught some nice details wish it were sharper.

Good angle on this Green Clearwing. Maybe a bit over saturated and over sharpened. Seems kind of grainy.

Nice colors. Good capture but needs better focus. Interesting perspective in a challenge full of simular shots.

Really nice attempt, focus just doesn't pop.

The composition is beautiful, the background is nicely out of focus, and the dragonfly has a lot of details especially on the wings. But the details around the head are a bit overprocessed... Very well done!

Great capture although I would have like to see a little more of the Dragonfly in focus.

I fear the depth of field was just a little too shallow: it looks like there is only one point in the photo that is in focus. The stick in the middle is quite an annoyance - I think the photo could be improved much by cropping off the bottom third or half.

Good capture. Didn't get real high marks because the focus is on the wing, so its face is soft focused. (I understand i t's hard to focus on a moving insect). Also a tad bit grainy for my taste.

If the subject was sharp it would help this pic tremendously.

Wish this were in better focus.

Nice capture, too bad it's a bit out of focus.

The most important part (the eyes) are out of focus.
