Very nice! I think that you could trim a bit of the pond background at the top.

The sharpness and focus are fantastic. I noticed you used F/18, yet you have a shallow depth of field. Was the dof created in post production, or is this common for the lens?

Re: Sharpness

no effects added - only crop from larger image + colors and contrast.
DOF looks like that, please remember that these dragonflies are rather small objects :)
