The Real Victory Was Inside Me All Along

Well, it didn’t win or place in the photo contest, but I’m still extremely proud of this photo. I chased this dragonfly for ages and took several photos (I posted another a few weeks ago). In color, this one is actually pretty drab, but on a whim, I converted it to black & white. That looked pretty cool; the structure of the wings popped and the details were no longer lost in a sea of dull green. I added some sepia tones for warmth and sharpened everything a bit more and ended up with this. I think it’s one of my best.
