I have heard on the SLR forums that some catch them and freeze just long enough to get some shots on a good back ground. Then released them!

Come on, Steve-o, you just want us to throw in our photographic white towel?!?!?

In all seriousness, Steve-o, what do you use for your post production? You really shine with your presentations.
I appreciate your kind words, thank you! However, Im not on here to compete with anybody, Im just sharing my photos because I LOVE photography and have a blast doing it. Im glad you enjoy my pics, that means alot to me. Ive always been an artist and when I picked up the camera 2 years ago I just started heading out on the weekends and shooting whatever I came across. Macro shots of nature is still my fave, but I do many other types of photography as well (a few portraits, some landscape, etc).

As for post-production, I use HP Image Zone (came installed on my comp) for cropping and sharpening, and Corel PhotoDraw for adding borders and saturating, etc. I dont use Photoshop and am in fact against using such programs. IMO, if you cant take a pic that youre happy with, dont modify it to your liking by using the computer. The most Ive done was black out the background on a car shot simply because there were spectators in the background and I didnt like that. I used Microsoft Paint, selected the airbrush and used black "paint" to darken the background.

Default bravo!

So glad I stumbled onto this photography area... Steve-o, I can't decide if the dragonfly or the mantis in the white flowers is my favorite pictures. There is something about those 2 insects... they appear to be "thinking bugs", and are my favorite things to find in the garden. I swear the dragonflies are studying us... Thanks for posting those fantastic pics!
