My nit is a bit the tight cropping under the frog, otherwise an overall well done photo.

Hello Tobias,
thank you for your kind words on my photo and welcome to TN! You start with a great shot, i like your low POV (point of view) and the detail in the grass. Your DOF (depth of field) is good and so is your composition, but perhaps a little more space to the left and below would be good too. I look forward to seeing more from you, well done!

Hello Tobias,
This is a good looking shiny frog, enjoying his outing in the green grass!
Good colours and sharp fine details, a well composed presentation!

Hi Tobias

Lovely frog you have their. I like the off-centre omposition but you can allow move room around him. He does look great with his green habitat. Excellent POV, nice DOF and well focused



Welcome to the club, my friend! Thanks for your comment on my picture of the spider. I like your picture of the frog. She looks so wet... sticky... Just natural frog! Congratulations!

Hi Tobias!
Very nice picture,I think the best one of your first four.
You gave the frog an excellent positioning and chose a good point of view.Lickily you left the colors realisticly and dind´t saturate them too much.
The sharpness......Maybe it would even better if you´d have taken it from a lower point of view,so you could create more depth.
Unfortunately there´s one big blade of grass in the foreground in the middle which doesn´t look so good,but that´s just a small detail.
The contrast could be a bit stronger,but you have to look for not oversaturating,that´s very impostant,as I already said.
A frame isn´t really necessary,but if there was one I would like it.....

At all a nice composition with some small things that could be improved.So I made a workshop for you to show you some things you could make better with the photoshop.
Thanks for sharing,Jonas

Hi Toba.
It is a nice capture, the focus is good and textures are very clear. The open space in front of the frog works very well and short DOF (depth of field) makes a grat effect of the grass. Thanks and regards, Felipe.

Hello Tobias,
Very nice capture of this frog nicely in focus. Sharp details and natural colours. The grass I find a bit bright, perhaps you've used too much contrast here. Well composed shot!
TFS and welcome to TN, Ulla

Hello Tobias, it's good shot of this frog. Sharp image, well composed and with a good exposure. Nice background and good note. Thanks,


I love frogs, and this is a very beautiful one. It looks like it is bigger than the tiny ones we have here in Sweden. Great photo! Clear and sharp. Well done, Tobias!
