"Dragonfly on Branch" is going to Ljubljana!

Dragonfly on Branch

Awesome news - this photo is going to appear in an exhibition in Ljubljana, Slovenia!

Quoting the email:

Your Photo was selected to be Digitally showcased in the "Solo" exhibition taking place at the amazing Ravnikar Gallery, located in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

See GuruShots' event for more details here.

This is a prime example of what happens when the sunlight is coming from behind the subject, and the background is dark enough - magic!

What do I like about this photo? The lighting, obviously! The Dragonfly just shines! The pose is also dynamic and interesting, with the curved branch adding some interest. There's good color contrast between the Dragonfly and the background, as well. I used an open aperture to create a shallow depth of field, so the Dragonfly is in focus but the background is blurred out.

What would I want to improve? Some parts of the wings are not in focus, as a result of the shallow depth of field. A more closed down aperture might solve that, but would also make the background less blurry and more noisy.
