While I put this in the photomanip section I tend to think of it more as a design piece

As some of you may have guessed, I find dragonflies to be rather fascinating. This particular specimen was photographed and scanned by Dr. Dennis Paulsen of the Slater Museum of the University of Puget Sound. He was kind enough to let me use several pictures of dragonflies and provide a wonderful site with lots of information about dragonflies. The lettering on the side actually covers some dragonfly terminology. See, art can be educational!

Anyways, I kept this piece deliberately rather simple because this was such a wonderful shot and I felt that the detail of the dragonfly deserved attention.

Excellent! I love the techno-style stuff mixed with the organic element of the dragonfly. It seems to me like it would make a great CD package... Nice repetition of elements, and you could turn the text on the right side into a track listing easily enough.

Great wall. It would be on my desktop but I hate white backgrounds. They hurt my eyes. Great source pics and great technique in design.

neato! yet another reminder that Nature *is* art (or beauty, one of the main components of art). The simplicity is a good thing.

You are a dragonfly FREAK. (everyone's a freak about something, eh?) ;) (Wink)
