A Dragonfly Dilemma

I'm undecided. The original photo is shown first.

The second, tweaked in Photoshop by desaturating the dragonfly but keeping the setting sunlight on his wings.

I feel like I am leaning towards the original. What do you think?

On the desat one, the background is less intrusive but I like the whole dragonfly on the first one so maybe you could just desat the background and leave the dragonfly in all his glory?

Gorgeous shot either way :)

as I said on the POE forum, I think the edited version removed too much vibrancy and drabs out the critter.

Still cool shot though, to have gotten that close and not have it flutter away.

Great shot. I love the first one, the second has lost too much color. JMHO.
Peace, Judi

Jen, I like the top one best. It really pops out at you. The color and warm light is what makes it special. Good work!

Gr. That was from me. I don't know why it is anonymous.

Both are lovely, but the original has color and a verve that is compromised in the second.
