Another shot of this wonderful animal I've found in Miami's Sea World. The details of its skin are amazing, with so many forms and textures, doesn´t it? It´s a big adult animal. Hope you like it!
All the best!

Hi Jose
Excellent capture with amazing details.
Great composition (although in my opinion a little tightly cropped on the right), good POV (point of view), and lovely colours. The BG is well removed thus enhancing the reptile and the exposure/lighting was very well controlled.
Good work and TFS.

Hi, Jose.
Nice iguana portrait. Good exposure and sharpness.

Hello Jose,
Very interesting shot!
The tight crop is always good when you want to concentrate on some details of animal not the animal itself. You said you like the structure of it's skin. Such tight cropping helps to show the scales better, so I think it would be a good thing to do, even if there wasn't anything distracting in BG. I like it.
Apart from that, great sharpness and lighting.

Thanks for posting, enjoy the rest of the week.

Hola José,
Muy buen y nítido primer plano de la cabeza de esta iguana, los detalles son magníficos. Yo la hubiera tomado un poquito más atrás, para que no llene demasiado la foto, pero es mi opinión.
Un abrazo

Awesome capture cousin! I love this ugly lizards. Excellent idea to capture the details of the animal, with the deserved sharpness. That made that capture a special one. Well done!
