Looking Back by Cristiana

This is a beautifully creative shot; the photographer has used a shallow depth of field to blur the grass in background. The composition and the sharp focus of the foreground draws your eye to the dragonfly on the leaf. The silhouette and the shape of the grasses are somewhat reminiscent of shadow puppetry, which helps to make this an enchanting image.
