Damselfly in the Sun
Photographer: Andrea Salas
Location: Houston, Texas
I rented a Nikon Nikkor 105mm Micro lens for a week, and this particular day I decided to go outside and chase these damselflies around my backyard, hoping to get close enough. These photos were totally worth the grass-burn I gave myself (since I was in shorts and a tee-shirt in our hot, humid May weather in Houston) crawling through the grass.
Digital Alterations: 
I decreased the brightness, increased the contrast, increased the vibrancy, and reduced both the luminance and the color noise.
Camera Information: Nikon D5100 with a Nikon Nikkor AF-S VR Micro 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED lens
