Thank You Pierre !

For kind comment ! these guys look great:) almost like mantis (related surely) in closer view,  even closer inspection is in in process -  so let's see how close I get:)

Pierre Dumas
Looks great!

Best regards Hannu!


Hannu Soini
Thank You for commenting!

Ian : I am glad you like the use of dof. Thank you for defining the species: it is indeed “white legged damselfly”, which has great color diversity.

Jose: I am glad you like the photo - and I hope to deliver more in the near future.

This is a very nice macro shot.

However, the use of too much sharpening also brings up the noise level seen in the image.

I have applied a mild noise reduction to your image (it would be better, but there were no details furnished along with your image) .

Best Regards, Mike

Great photo, love the shallow depth of field and neutral background. A white legged Damselfly I believe. Top job.




Hannu Soini
Thank You Mike !

You are absolutely right. Sometimes the post-processing makes it difficult to determine the best way to correct the photo. Certain programs have better capabilities of correcting the produced noise.

Your version certainly has done good to the picture. I try to include one with Aperture where the result was better thanks to your advice. br Hannu
