[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Found this little guy in a Bottlebrush Tree. Only managed to take two shots before he had enough. Not the best quality but I like the way his fingers disappear into the tree.

Thanx for the look and please crit.

Hi Jannie,
I like your composition and framing on this. Some might say it is to tight at his nose. I think your flash has over exposed it some, and this has washed out some good color detail. I do not workshop other members work, but I think you can bring some of this back with some post processing adjustments. It is a great example of camouflage in nature.

Bonjour Jannie!
La pose du spécimen sur cet arbre et le camouflage est parfaits.

Félicitations pour l'éclairage qui fait bien ressortir les détails.



He has awesome camouflage indeed. Maybe not the clearest pic but the Comp and POV are good indeed. There is also enough detail on the pic to appreciate the detail of the specimen. TFS, Sheriff

Hi, Jannie.
I think it's very educational photo about animals hiding capabilities. Good composition and sharpness. I think details are not so bad.

Well - You did flash it quite a bit. I know your frustration here so I understand. good shot considering the camera you used and how you had to take the picture


Hi Jannie

This is great work. Well composed with good POV. Nice colours and textures. Well done. TFS.

Very good lizard shot with eye catching eye contact - if you get my drift. Smiley will follow.
