.... down my little forest slide.
This little frog - forget what it was - was only about an inch long. I soooooo love frogs - they're soooo cool!!
excellent shot Karen,now thats cute :o)
Well taken shot, great dof and colour on the frog
I love them too and this is a great shot - well done !
Great detail on such a little frog ! They are so captivating aren't they ☺
+ve: Great colours and composition.
-ve: DOF could be a little wider. I think the crop needs to be shifted a little to the left and down as you have more space behind the frog than in front of it - the way it is facing. The downward shift (placing the frog higher) will place it on a third line too which would be better in my opinion. Loads of potential.
thank you all for your comments.
Lauren - i agree with you about the crop, unfortunately that is as far to the left as i could get it, as there was a rather intrusive pink flower there. there are out of focus leaves below and to the right that don't look right left in. Just a chance shot - the only one i got cos they kept moving away quickly to hide. well - i do have one other shot, just it's nose poking out from the undergrowth!! LOL!!
Wonderful colours, well done.
Ah ok, I didn't think you'd have done it on purpose. Then I'd crop a bit more off the right and top instead to balance it up just a smidge. Was this at Bristol too?
very good photo,excellent d.o.p
Lauren - I can never get this cropping business! LOL!! Yes - another trip to Bristol today!! Only to find out the name of my last photo i put on here - had to know for definite Had a lot of fun there today - but not many decent photos!
Lovely capture, nice and sharp on the eye. The frame works well.
Excellent! I love the vivid colours.
Hey Karen,great to some of your new work, really like this one, great colours and DOF,
like this one good color and DOF. Vinny
Superb shot of a little green frog.
My wifes nickname is Frog
One word stunning lyne.
Wow excellent close up lovely colour of the frog.
I think everyone above has summed up my thoughts. You, on the other hand, seem to enjoy it so much as a learning curve that I actually relish your answers.
All I can add is, What a wonderfully cute shot. DOF is good as it centres on the eye. Framing a touch off but overall a very good piece of work. Well done
Man oh man did you nail this one! Excellent shot, the detail is stunning, and the colors are so vivid! Hats off to you! Spot On! Click!!!
Excellent shot Karen,
now I've got to go out and buy a canon 100mm macro lens
Got any spare money?
This is truly excellent!!
Excellent close-up, nice image.
Thank you all for your encouraging comments, very much appreciated.
Don - i won't ask why your wife's nickname is frog!
RE: cropping - just have to concentrate on the amount of the space around the subject. Basic rules apply that it works well on third lines (esp where third lines bisect each other) and there should be more space in the direction the subject is looking.
Bought a season ticket to zoos now? LOL!
Super capture - love the colours here
Frogs are indeed cool. Like this one, the sharpness and colour. Judi
Great capture, I can just imagine how hard it must have been to snap them before they jumped off. -click-
Fab shot - love the colours and the sense of movement.
brilliant.........up to wildlife photographer of the year standard in my opinion
Thank you for your lovely comments.
Marc - you won't believe how long i hovered - and how much foliage there was for them to hide under.
John - you are very kind - long way to go to ever come halfway near their standards. LOL
Lovely creature - good shooting
I could do with a handsome prince right now lol, but I like this one the way he is!! So no kisses for him but a big click for you!!
Very nice work, your patience has been rewarded
Great capture - really like the strong colours and composition.
