Here is one of my favorite macro shots, which I have been using recently to test some new sharpening method.
My goal was to make the body and wings of the damselfly sharper. At the same time I have tried to avoid enhancing the noise in the flat areas, as well as over-sharpening the bright reflections.
I’d like to see what others can achieve.
Of course, any other creative interpretation of the image is allowed and very much welcome!
