I took this photo because: I loved how the dragonfly was sharp and still. I just loved it. The combination of colour and light immediately get you to focus on the subject, the dragonfly. The photo’s appeal is that it creates a sort of calming mood, like relaxation or comfort. (The dragonfly was also a great model).

To make my photography appealing I used: Framing, Rule of thirds, Focal point of interest, Colour combinations, Depth of field.

A question I have about the subject of my photograph is: Why is the dragonfly sitting on this flower? The answer to my question is: I don’t entirely know but I think he’s relaxing while looking for an insect to eat.

To improve my photo, I would wait for a different light.
