The Frog: 4 in 1
A good shot and a thoughtful and interesting note. It's quite amazing to see so much in the reflection, not only shapes but colours too. It's also interesting to see a frogs eye at such proximity, I don't think I ever saw one so close before. Nice work and an entertaining post, thanks for sharing.
Nice to hear you got some pictures of your family this time :-)
Quite an impressive shot you got here! You managed to squeeze a lot of stuff in that little eye. Even more impressive is the fact that you did it with a zoom lens (as opposite to 1:1 macro lens). Very good job! Congratulations,
This a real macro of an eye and "micro" of a landscape and you! Quite original and eye-catching shot with very good details and reflection.
I see you - that's a lovely shot with nice reflections in this eye - very creative.
Thanks and bye

The shot is great, but I really loved your note. Made me laugh. Very good surprise!
excellent shot of a frog eye and a photographer in the classic..'humped over' mode..:)
we get this all the time..
the clarity here is phenomenal at such a distance
it puts the konica minolta cam range back on my wants list
ps your portrait in w/s..:)
Hello Alexei, I read all your interesting note. I like the "first class lens" and the sentence "Nature has presented me my own image in such original presentation" ! You made an original and amazing shot 4 in 1 !!!! Bravo !
Molto interessante questa foto macro, bellissimo lo specchio nell'occhio, veramente bella, bravo!!
this is close! Very nice shot, I like the details in the reflection and the *frog eye effect* ;-). Very well done, there is so much to explore in your composition.
It's an unusual and wonderful capture.It's interesting to see you in frog eyes:)Well caught,framed and composed.Excellent work!
vous avez reussi la une belle photo avec votre reflet dans l'oeil de cette grenouille.
une netteté impeccable.felicitations.
Perfect close up...Excellent presantation. Extraordinary and creative work ..Bravo, regards
I am all 4 this photo. Great concept.Excellent macro.Amazing how much detail is in the reflection of this frog's eye.It's like CSI stuff. TFS

I like this photo very much! Great macro with your reflection in its eye. It is so close... Great composition and a very good catch! TFS,
what a details in a eye, wauw Alexei,
fantastic, you can see the photographer in the shot, what can I say, the idea is very good and the quality is very nice, well done.
The quality is not the best but it deserves a big smiley for the unusual factor!
Je félicite autant le photographe pour cette superbe image que le dresseur de grenouilles :-))
Avoir réussi à mettre le reflet du photographe et du soleil dans l'oeil est une prouesse. Bravo.
I like this photo within a photo, very interesting idea, my advice is that you add some shadows or tint to make it look sharper and to lose light reflextions, good work!
Hi Alexei !
What a great photo ! I love it ! It is showing us amazingdetails of the frog's eye, but the most interesting part is, in my opinion, the wonderful reflection in the eye itself. There is a whole landscape in this eye, with trees, leaves and a sun - and you, of course ! :-) Very well done !
Oui, vous avez dû être surpris de voir que l'oeil de la grenouille avait pris votre photo! C'est absolument incroyable et c'est réussi avec beaucoup de netteté.
Qu'est-ce que le hasard peut faire. Moi, je donne cinq ***** à la grenouille! D'accord, Alexei?
You are an absolute GENIOUS! So great a close up,
so well done, that "YOUR" image is reflected on the creatures eye.
Your notes bear witness to the quality of your talent.

I like very much your 4 in 1. Is is a lovely shot with a great and detailed reflection which contains even the colours of the scene and a shine star on the sun :)
I agree with Geof about contrasting a bit more, but not as much as the workshop.
I enjoyed to see this one, congratulations.

WOW!! What a stunning shot!! I had never seen a frog's eye so close and with so much information in it! You did an excellent and interesting close-up here. A great shot, indeed!
Thank you very much, dear Alexei.
Beautiful, creative, and unique image. It is not easy to get the cooperation of animals, so it is right to give them co-authorship!
I have a technical question- the tripod button is marked yes, but in your reflection in the frog's eye, it does not look like you are using a tripod. Can you please comment?
