With texture Angi - the texture adds a complimentary dimention to the shot without removing any attention from your subject. An excellent piece of work.

V3 is my preference I think, followed by V1 - it's a little dark, but it doesn't look bad - then V2 - the colours seem too bright.

V1 for me by far. I think it would look even better if feet were in full focus too. Just personal preference. Amazing colours and details captured.

Yep, I quite agree, I rather stupidly had the aperture at F5.6 to blur the background, but wish I had upped it to F8-11 for a few too. I will next time Wink
Yay, an HC and a guest editors award, thanks very much guys ;D

I love V3 as a visual image, it's just beautiful. I suppose if you just want a straight froggy shot V3 would be the one, but personally I like a bit of art too.
