Thanks everyone for the comments! This is my first challenge with my new 20D :)

This is soo good Justin! I had this pegged for a ribbon. Congrats on the top 10 placement in a very saturated field. ;-)

Wow! How beautiful! I love the way the background colour morphs from pink to yellow to lime to green! The clarity of flower stem and insect is excellent, so too are their colours and placement within the frame. Nice one!

Great shot! This should do very well... crisp detail and interesting 'pose'. High marks.

Wow.

very nice. My only nitpick is I think the picture would be perfect if the whole stem were within the field of focus. 8

i think this picture would look even better in b/w

Nice definition on the dragonfly and overall the bokeh is of pleasant colour. It's certainly a hard call, but I would have been tempted to frame or crop this image in a different way, latitude allowing. The bottom of the photo gives the nice orange colour. If only the bokeh was a little more concentrated in effect up towards the top.

Nice focus on the dragonfly and smooth, pastels on the bg. I like the positioning of the subject as well as the negative space. 9

Very nice capture. The image is tack sharp and the Bokeh really adds to the image. Tigher crop may have been even better.

Great shot, the hints of color in the backround enhance the pic. Lots of patience here.
