Hallo Laurens,
Ben steeds meer verbaasd over de juweeltjes die je ons steeds voor houdt. Prachtige foto met een perfect scherpe focus. De f 3.8 was een uitstekende keuze. Net als de compositie. Erg mooi!

Hi Laurens another great macro of this poisonous frog's colour-pattern variant. Very well composed and focused.
TFS this fine capture my friend!

amazing creature, TFS Ori

Hello Laurens,
Beautiful frog. And it has a bit the color of a banana as well.
The depth of field is a bit shallow.
Did you use flash here?

Hi Laurens,

I can see that I am going to love this series! I don't know how you capture them so beautifully - they never stay still for me. The pose on the leaf is marvelous. Beautiful colors and excellent details - another big eye. A perfect background and composition.

Hello Laurens !
He may be posonous, but he is also a wondrful little frog, I love its yellow color very much, and you managed to capture skin texture very nicely. I also like the pose, the grof looks curious and attentive. The picture is very nicely composed, with the border of the leaf making a diagonal. Very well done !

Hi Laurens,
I already visited your great portfolio several minutes ago. Now, I saw newly my other neighbour:) Nice to meet with you in neghbourhood. This is another great capture of colorful and poisonous Dendrobates pumilio. Coloration splendid with greatly contrasting greenish color of leave to frog's orange. Focus, POV and composition also great. Thanks for sharing. I hope we will see more shots from colorful tropical frogs. best wishes

Hi Laurens,
a very good shot of this cute little frog.
Really sharp and clear.
Nice colours.
Excellent composition.

Well done,

Beautiful shot! I like the way the upper postion contains the sharply focussed leaf, while the lower shows the blurred out bg. Sharpness and details on the frog are excellent. Also I like the colours and the sparkle in the eye.

Hi Laurens

I love to see you jewel coloured frogs. They look wonderful even if you wouldn't want to handle them. I love the setting for the frog here with the lovely greens in the background. Lovely DOF, nice clarity, great POV. Very nice shot



Good location, crop and composition. Again colors are very nice. Sharpness is good. Light is fine also... Best wishes.

Hi Laurens,
Fantastic shot of a beautiful frog, which I like most though poisonous. Perfect composition, beautiful natural colours, superb sharpness and details and splendid lighting. Very well done, my friend, and TFS.
