  • First attempt to catch dragonfly

    I am playing around with my new 'second hand' E-3 with the 70-300mm lens. This lens is not quick and it is so hard to catch them. I am still a noob in photography. Feel free to pass on any comments

    Dragonflies are hard. You did well here. Great compositions, especially the first one. I think both need a contrast hit. I ran the second one through NIK's Color Efex Pro Contrast filter, because it was quick and does a great job and this is what I came up with:



    This could and should be tweaked a bit, but this shows what I think could be done.

      You did well on your first attempt.

      Once you get used to the 70-300 lens you will be out looking what to shoot at next.

        Thanks for the comments & tips. The post-processed picture clearly showed me the way how much better that picture could be.

        I am in a learning process and I haven't reach the stage to do post-processing of a picture. I hope I will pick up a lot of tips & tricks along the way and also learn how to use software to enhance the pictures.

        Cheers.
