Nice pose, good sharpness almost to the tail. A bit harsh light, that's a pitty. Why don't you try it just after sunrise, beautiful light.

Boy, the lighting doesn't bother me at all in this one. I think it's sharp, detailed and eye catching! I kinda like the OOF clover but, yeah, it wouldn't hurt to mow first. :D

Lolol..if we mowed, we'd never get out taking photos, I hate cutting the grass/weeds (weed killer not allowed in Ontario)...the image nice, has sharpness, detail..I might darken it just a bit but thats just me. Nice work Ovidiu

Love the rich colours and sharpness. I guess I would agree with thijs broekkamp about the light being a bit harsh.

Hey Ovidiu,
I agree about the light harshness.....but just bringing down the brighness overall will help. VG pose and perch but another vote for mowing the lawn (or at least a patch of it!) next time out.

Looks like a Common darter dragonfly to me, I would suggest making a mask of the thorax and abdomen and lowering the highlights a little.
