Shooting through glass is always tricky but you've done a fairly good job, here. They're not super-sharp but the cute pose just about makes up for that. Smile Putting the tank in the sunshine is probably the best way to get more light without worrying your son with the flash. I'm sure it's possible to use flash in a way that doesn't disturb animals such as these; Angi Nelson has loads of amphibian photos (not the same, I know) in her profile that were taken with flash so maybe she can give you some advice if you ask nicely. Smile

As I not able to see the detail I am geussing that it is..
I think a tighter crop would be nice...
I would cropall the shadow out so it just underneath there home ..
The top side is quite dull so a crop above Gecko then crop front right side where that shadow is..
That should balance image...

I hope you understand me..

Thanks Dave. It was one of those grab the camera instances where I just needed to get the photo before they did sommat elseSmile It was auto flash. If I'd got to grips with my gun could have put the difuser onSmile I will look at Angi's portfolioSmile

No, I haven't shot in Raw. I've got the software that came with Nikon and I also use the computers phot software. Had a Nikon D7000 course last month, daughter did their beginners course (I think) she's got Nikon D5100Smile I'm such a novice with digital.
