Nicely done Ann, but signs of noise. Always a difficult subject in artificial light. Looks like a type of Iguana.

Personally, I think he's rather ugly, but then he probably would think the same of me. Smile

Nicely shot. The exposure will have been difficult, I imagine, with all that white stone around him.

Love him or her Ann great capture, must go for V3 because V1 and V2 the crop is to severe, no room to look into.

Super shot Ann, V3 is my choice, although I may have been inclined to edit out the diagonal line above its head

thats it and I couldnt for the life of me thinkSmile I think the noise is probably more to do with the heavy crop, its not noticeable in the V3

V3 is my vote Ann. V1 and 2 are just a bit tight on the crop and it does cause an appearance of noise.

Great shot Ann, V1 for me, contrary to previous comments I have no problems with noise (or graining as us lads used to call it). Maybe an easy criticism in the abscence of anything else.
