I likey the shot. Is that an insect on one of the leaves? Was it intentional to leave it there?

If no why not remove. If yes, ignore :)

I live near a rather large river, so one morning I went down to the end of the road I live off to take a picture of the full moon setting on the water just before dawn. I shot only the reflection on the water using some weeds as foreground. When I had the film developed, I noticed I had been able to capture a sleeping dragonfly on one of the tall weeds. Nice surprise.

The image is good on its own but with the dragon fly as well I think it promotes it to a higher level of art....a great shot.

For a 3 second exposure its real crisp.

Suby, I think you're funny :)
Micky, I loved the dragonfly, and the tone/mood of the shot.

What a great accident- the dragonfly definitely catapults this already stunning shot to a new level.

Really cool image. Catching the dragonfly is what makes this shot for me.

Cool. I love the way the moon came out in this, and the drangonfly and silhouette of the grass are great. What are the horizontal lines in the image?

You know what? I actually followed the instruction of the title, and went nearer to my monitor to take a closer look! It sure caught my attention for a while, well done.

I think I can see a dragonfly? At first I thought I was looking at a curtain! cheers

He,he... I also thought it was a curtain with a spotlight! Then my eyes adapted to the darkness and I spotted the dragonfly!
It was fun ! :-)

I like the shape of the moon. Also, the grain of the film adds to the photo--something I do miss since I'm now completely digital.

Your image has an oriental flava to it, I feel. The dragonfly is indeed a wonderful occuring accident that creates a breezy, rustling in the wind reeds, type of scenario, painted of course with a Japanese influence.

This one is just great. I'm sure the original is so much better too! I guess it's time for a better scanner :)

Back to the photo...that light in the background is so intriguing. I'm not sure if it's a streetlight, the moon, car headlights...very cool. I did look closer, and I see the little fellow hanging on. If only the scan were better...
