Hi Craig.
Good capture on the mouth and teeth but the water above your Lady Croc is distracting from what I believe you are trying to acheive. The point of interest is the mouth and teeth and I feel if you crop down to just above her back from the top and crop out the bright water above then the eye goes straight to the mouth, thats the point of impact and interest. The reflection in the water below is also an interest to your photo, a nice finishing touch. Maybe a little contrast and sharpening could help also.
Well seen, I'm glad we don't have any of those in our rivers and lakes.

New Zealand.

Nice capture.
The reflection in water is great.
Some PP work would have been necessary to enhance contrast hue and sharpness.
Some overexposed areas on its back. Not much to do about it though.

Hi Craig,

I give you one point for seeing this fierce monster, and another point for being daring enough to stand there and take her picture!

I addressed in a workshop some of the comments made in your earlier critiques - I enhanced hue, contrast and sharpness, and cropped the water above as much as I could.

One could make the argument that it would be better to crop all but the head, but I felt the reflection below did have some value, so I left it in.
