    Falcon: Superb clarity.

    Rich: Looks more like detail smearing from noise reduction at ISO 3200 than OOF to me. Was that shot with just available light?
    Nikon D7000 and a bunch of Nikon stuff oh, and some Canon p&s's too

    The subject is in focus; you are allowing yourself to be distracted by the brunette in the foreground

    I used Topaz Adjust to simplify and flatten the model. Below is a pullback shot showing my assistant the Elinchrom Ranger RX with a 27" deep octoabox on a monopod and the uncropped out of camera jpg image.

    It always looked to me like the subject was the two in the background behind the fence. That was what I saw anyway.
    I still think that the Fuji section needs love though.

    Rooz;
    Here is the full frame shot, as you can see the only part that is really in focus is the head area, very shallow DOF.
    Unfortunately with the resizing all the detail in the eyes is lost. 150mm F8 1/800 ISO 400. At a guess 6-8" from the subject with a wingspan around 3". Did lose the tips of the wings from being so close.

    Rich, crank it (image size) back a little. Hard to see the shot.

    Thanks!

    P.S. Ya know, the more I look at the image the better I like it. Kinda grows on you.

    Title: "A Woman Scorned". Good job by the model...

    ... oh and the photographer.

    Man you are one sneaky dude. Every time I get within 2 feet the subject disappears... except Seagulls, and Pigeons.

    I think that it had recently emerged from the Nymph shell and wasn't quite ready to fly much. I usually find hat I can't get much closer than 5 feet or so. With some species and most Damselflies you can get much closer. Wait 'til you what is next.

    What's Next: Territorial Conflict

    These two fellas were fighting over this perch for several minutes. And I took several shots from about 8-10'. This is the best one. Once I realized what was going on I simply pre-focused on the dead plant and kept the lens at manual so It wouldn't drift or shift focus.

    Damn! I really must get myself a new desktop monitor; the shot looks much better on my laptop.

    How nice to have an assistant with a 27" deep octabox........... <sigh>
