Hi Laurens,

A wonderful finale to this enjoyable series. Pose, colors and details are all excellent. As for my favorite - almost a toss up between yesterday's and today's but that bright orange one stole my heart.

Hello Laurens,
A lovely shot of this colourful frog. The details and the DOF is great.Well composed and the low POV is very good.
I love it.
Best regards Siggi

Hi Lauren,

Hi Laurens. What a great POV showing the side view of the Frog. Such a bright orange colour. It looks great with the brown. Once again you have taken it with fine detail and sharp focusing. well done TFS.

Hi Laurens
A lovely capture to end your series. I can see why you liked this one so much! Excellent colour and detail. DOF is a little shallow but looking at the other camera settings I am guessing there may not have been enough light to use a smaller aperture.
Kind Regards

hi Lu!
the never ending story of the pumilio!!!!
vivid colors and details

best sERGIO

Hallo Laurens,
Dit is inderdaad een topper ter afsluiting. Ik heb erg van je serie genoten. Ook nu weer enorm scherp en schitterende heldere kleuren. Prachtige compositie en laag aanzicht.
Ben benieuwd waar je nu mee komt. Ik heb zelf fantastische ervaringen uit Costa Rica, maar niet zulke goede foto's (dia's).

Hello Laurens
This picture is very beautiful and colorful. Nice colors and sharpness. The background is amazing .
Good Job

Hello Laurens,
Oranje boven dus.
Moet al terug gaan...denk dat ik er een paar gemist heb.
Kleuren kijken:-)
Bedankt voor de reeks,

Sure not a bad one Laurens but not certain this is the one that I prefer. I feel it's more a picture of a naturalist than a picture of a .... photographer!
Excellent series anyway, it was a pleasure

Hello Laurens,

Your photo shows the frog in very nice colors. You have rendered very well the intense color and nice pattern of the skin. Using the wood as background was a good idea as both texture and color makes a fine contrast with the frog.

Thank you for sharing,

Outstanding again and this frog looks so beautiful with its bright colours and markings. Immaculate sharpness and great handling of flash lighting. Excellent POV, DOF and composition.
