Hi Steve, I like the mood and the concept of this image. The deep in the swamp feel really plays out in this photo. I could see taking out the rather bright green spot in the upper right as it tends to draw my eye. Well done.

Cool abstract that gives you plenty of compositional variations !

I love the dragonfly over its left eye. Please go back with a longer lens to get a macro. Or just wade closer.
