Hello Erwin,
No need for ID, you'll recognize this beauyty immediately:-)
Very good DOF and thus sharpness with a matching BG.
Well done

Hi Erwin

I'll play along with Annick's game, but I'll give you a hint in saying that you could perhaps come a little closer to recognise the ID from the theme I've added this one to (chuckle).

It's sharp yes? Well in fact it's very sharp. It's so sharp that I cannot believe anything else then to think it was shot from a tripod. Remember that during the uploading phase you have the tick which you can switch on to indicate if in fact it was taken from a tripod or not. Anyway, at 1/30 second shutter speed and with such excellent sharpness it must be a dead give away. The colour saturation is great and the DOF has ensured that the BG was well removed and totally OOF thus isolating the reptile and making it stand out nicely. The composition is good giving this portrait just the right proportions of cropping and positioning of the subject. I just love that little Lacertilian eye. Loosehands your best posting yet.

Well done and TFS

Hi Erwin, Fine portrait of this Iguana. Nicely detailed with this close view. Beautiful colors and well composed. Good DOF. Tfs Richard
