MYN do-over – Tramea carolina exuvia (face)

Carolina Saddlebags dragonfly (Tramea carolinaexuvia, collected by Andy Davidson near Richmond, Virginia USA, was photographed against a pure white background using the “Meet Your Neighbours” (MYN) technique. Twice.

I love the way the original photo turned out (shown below), but the composition wasn’t quite right. So I decided to shoot a do-over (shown above).

One of the legs is broken; it was hanging on by a slender thread of spider silk, so I decided to shoot the subject “as is.” Problem is, the position of the broken leg bothers me.

The original version has a little “crunchier” look than the do-over, and I like that. Who knows? I might be compelled to do-over the do-over by tweaking the adjustments I made during post-processing. That said, unless you look at the two photos side-by-side, the updated version looks good and is certainly much improved over the original, compositon-wise.
