[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A dragonfly sculpture in Jikjisa Park outside Gimcheon, in north western Gyeongsangbukdo Province. A very rare blue sky in South Korea, too. Yesterday there was a yellow dust alert, & the sky was orange! Still getting over my headcold. Taken last October before it got cold. I even managed to get a little sunburnt!

Hi Chris,
Wow what a stunning clear blue sky! Excellent sharpness and contrast to showing this art dragonfly on it's best! A fine post Chris.

Hi Chris
What a interesting dragonfly!
Great idea to make a photo of this lovely sculpture.
Blue of the sky is unbelievable!
I like it!

Hello Chris,
I find the sculpture quite interesting as it is for sure not one we see anywhere else but here on TL, and on your post. Very clear day as you stated, and it appears to have been warm also.
Good catch with this one...

Hi Chris,

Hope you're all better soon! The dragonfly structure contrasts nicely against that wonderful blue sky. Very sharp, with nice color contrasts.

Stylized dragonfly. Nice!

Hello Chris,

I do like how the shadows of the scupture, on the vertical pole, suggest the segmented body of a real dragonfly.
Excellent clarity with the sculpture making a strong impact against the clear, blue sky.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Bom dia Chris,
Beautiful image, according to a vertical format that was very well here.
The contrast and brightness of this beautiful sculpture against the sky was very beautiful.

Hi Chris,

The trees are framing well the rest area and the sculpture. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the rest area and of the sculpture. The quality of the light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
