How we did it?

The uniqueness in some of the dragonfly images on this page were produced through standard Photoshop filters and extraction tools. In some instances we may have extracted the dragonfly images from the original photo, first, and then applied the appropriate filter or filters to achieve eye-catching results. We believe the more unusual dragonfly images underscore some of the limitations in human eyesight, which is a key factor in how we perceive and develop an understanding of the world around us.

Unfortunately, human eyes do not see all parts of the light spectrum. They only see visible light – the rainbow of colors – but not infrared light or microwave light. What does that mean? Our perception of our surroundings is limited by our human senses and by our brain’s ability to process only so much information. Maybe imagination is how we compensate for this shortcoming. But then, perhaps, the real shortcoming is our ability to imagine. We hope you enjoy these interesting and sometimes unusual dragonfly images.
