The compostition is excellent and the inclusion of the shadow works well.

Thanks for posting

It looks like it's in midair. Wonderful picture Grzegorz!

Wonderfully composed. I think I would like to see a little more color depth. I realize this was taken in bright sunlight, but perhaps just a touch deeper with levels or curves . Still a great image!

Good shot Grzegorz and well seen. Did you use a polarisation filter?

Nice composition details. I also see Lesley's point about the colour.

Good work.

Amazing image, letting us think on the thumbnail that this frog is flying! Well composed, with the underwater shadow. Unusual capture. Well done Grzegorz.

Looking at the thumbnail I thought "yawn, another frog", but this is superb. The focus on the frog is spot on, and it looks like it's just floating in space except for the reflection by the chin. Well done.

Hi Grzegorz your "flying" frog is very good.
The composition is great and the details are very good.
Well done.

Un seul mot: superbe. L'ombre ajoute une profondeur et un 3d formidable. Merci. Rudy.

It is a "very well seen" shot with an unusual DOF. Thanks for sharing, Grzegorz.

Flying or swiming?
I like this shot
Very well done

Very cute instant ! Darkening the shadow wouldve likely improve the captured momentum !

Great view of a frog suspended in virtual animation. There is a 3D quality to the composition as the water and shadow are incredibly clear. Well done.

I would like to live on the earth when every kind of frogs will be so happy that they will be able flaying in the sky :-)This picture is only image of flaying but... maybe someday ;-)))

Grzegorz, to me, everything is just perfect here: sharpness, composition, pov, dof, colors...

An original, funny and great photo.


Its really fun the way they stay in the watter.
good picture...

Great shot. The frog is so sharp, and I love the composition where you have it's shadow off to the left.



Hello Greg,
Excellent composition: light, colours, sharpness, details...all very good. I understand why it´s a favorite.

Hello Grzegorz.

Excellent image, nice composition and colors.
