Hi Eric,
What a great shot, so sharp and
colourful,hard to believe it was
taken through glass,I feel I could touch the screen and feel the roughness of the scales,but I'm afaid that he might bite me.
full marks Eric.
Best regards,

Bonjour Eric,
Amazing colors on this reptile! They're so vibrants!
I like so much the pose captured, and your ability to shot thru glass, with such good details.
Well done and best regards,

Hi Eric

Another superb photo from you!
I really love all the details and textures of this splendid iguana!
The colors are also wonderful and excellently saturated, the lighting is great and the POV exceptional!
The eye-contact is definately a key element, but i also like those huge claws, too.
Very nicely framed and composed, my friend!

Bravo and TFS

Hello Eric,
What a face.It looks like a character fom starwars:)Excellent colors,details and sharpness.Very well done!

bonjour eric
je crois que l'on fier comme un paon mais cela n'envele rien a la beauté de cette photo avec des couleurs superbes,surement dû au neon du vivarium.
bien vu.

Very nice shot, good colours and details!
Bye Tom

Hello Eric,

Excellent capture with great details! The composition is very good with a well isolated subject from the dark background. The lighting conditions were very well handled. I don't know where the green light came from but it certainly has a great effect on the picture. Sharpness is spot-on and the colors are a dream. A very good job on the exposure with the minor point of having the highlights in the rock overexposed but I guess that it couldn't have been avoided. The details in the skin are perfect! I can almost feel the reptilian texture of the skin. Some information on this beautiful species would have been helpful! An outstanding work overall! Congratulations and TFS!

With Best Regards,
