Straight Down (Two Photographs)

I don’t believe these photos break any rules. But often when I see dragonflies on the ground the background or other things makes the photo unworkable. Here I was able to crop into a nice composition that works in colour and B&W. Lightroom’s latest version has a much improved auto function in the basics tab and rather than over brightening things it gets most settings bang on, a bit too much clarity and saturation but that is easily fixed. The increasing sophistication of the software trending toward “the one button fixes everything“ is something worth watching. For those who hate editing this may be a solution and for those who like editing this may create a better starting point for creative touches.
