Ancient wings

Post by Erland R.N. »

Here's a photo from early summer in Sweden.
Canon 5D, Sigma 150, uncropped
f/8, 1/160 s, iso 400

I just had to try composing a post of two pictures, as I've seen other do :wink:

Hope you like it, although the wings are not completely in focus.

It is a pretty picture!

The two-images trick works better if you wrap a [size=0] tag around the newline, like this:

[img] ... 01_a_1.jpg[/img][size=0]
[/size][img] ... 01_b_1.jpg[/img]

Without the [size] tag, many browsers will leave a blank line between the two images.

I am always fascinated by these insects when ever I come across them, they have to be one of my favorites. A really great job of compositing there Erland. :D

I think it is one of those pictures that seems to be right at the top of the craft IMO. Great background, excellent detail on the insect and justs looks beautiful. :wink:

Beautiful composition and good detail too. In my opinion worth every extra pixel of the combined image.

Bruce :D
