Nice image. the head and the dried flower head are in perfect focus. the tail is lightly off focus, but with dragonflies it is often times hard to get everything in focus. great detail on the flower, head and body.

Fine capture of the dragon - neat colors. I like the angle on the subject and the DOF as is.

I agree with Tom - unless you want all of your comps to be perfect profiles, you’re never going to have a deep enough DOF, and you nailed it where the viewer is going to focus anyway.
Good light,

Your selective focus works very well in this excellent capture, Kostas! The colour makes it appear like a bronze sculpture.

A very appealing view - I think the composition and overall colour palate work well
