Hi Ganesh,

You spot the most wonderful things when you are at work! I have never seen a lizard on top of a bush. A beautiful portrait with excellent colors and details. I love the eye and the skin. The dark background is perfect and the composition is superb.


Hello, Amazing shot. I can see the teeth inside the lizard mouth. Just beautiful and great image quality. As all said the BG is superb. Vignesh

Hello Gannu,
This is brilliant stuff. Great BG and superb sharpness. Wonderful image quality. BTW how did u manage to get the fella noticed? SAN

hello ganesan,
Its getting better and better by each passing day, this one looks like a studio portrait with the kind of light effect you have created here, excellent sharpness with great details of this beautiful reptile, pleasing composition and the dark bg suits the shot well, i am sure that anna will be delighted to see this well deserved dedication,
tfs & regards

Dear Ganesh
Thank you for this very special dedication. I accept it with great pleasure and pride. I appreciate your kind gesture and can only quote on what Pankaj has said “I am sure that Anna will be delighted to see this well deserved dedication”. Yes, I am indeed delighted and most honoured, and I thank you kindly for your kind words about my critiquing style and contributions to Trek Nature.

You have captured this Garden Lizard with great skill and preciseness. Facial detail are well portrayed and clearly seen. The light shades of green on the scales are displayed well on the photograph and add some extra oomph to this portrait. The shape of the eye is something special and this elegant reptile even has a "beauty spot” on its eyelid. A beautiful close-up, with great focus and framing, presented in an excellent manner. Thanks for sharing this delightful image, and have a most enjoyable weekend.
Best regards

hi ganesh,
very, very decent and simple portrait of this garden lizard. tfs.

Un buen trabajo con la luz y el encuadre sin olvidar una pose excelente ( y curiosa ) del reptil. Bonitos detalles. Quizá el blanco abunda demasiado aunque el retrato es bello igualmente.

Hi Ganesh

A very beautiful shot of this lizard and a terrific dedication for an excellent TN member - Anna.
I really like the natural contrast between the bright colors of this lizard and the darker BG, as well as the gorgeous texture that the scales give.
The pose - with the eyes and mouth - is also great and it enhances the value of the photo.
Very well done!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Ganesh

It is an excellent capture of this lovely little reptile. You have captured fantastic sharp details of the garden lizard. The exposure was masterfully managed and the subject is well complimented by the dark BG.

Thanks for this wonderful dedication to Anna. I know how much it meant to her, especially at this time. You have done a kind deed with this gesture.

Well done and TFS.

Very nice indeed Ganesh, excellent detail and the POV from the side is well seen. The dark BG is perfect.

Excellent point of view and depth of field on this, Ganesh. This is a vivid, crisp image. You show the detail very well.


Wow! nice shot! Excellent details and sharply focussed.

Hello Ganesh. I'm sure Anna is happy with the dedication. Sharp image against the negative background. The detail is very well seen and captured. Regards. Jusni

Hello Ganesh,

Very nice portrait of this lizard. Good timing to have it with its mouth open. Excellent sharpness. Superb detail. Good natural colours.

What a brilliant shot of the Garden Lizard Genesan. It's an awesome shot, so crisp and sharp. And I love its pose - well done

Hi Narayanan,
Great photo, with excellent eye contact and good details. The dark BG gives the lizard a kind of glow. I like that you caught him just with his mouth open and that he made eye contact with the camera. The details and the way its skin is build up out of layers is something every interesting.

Hi Ganesh,
great portrait with excellent sharpness and detail.
Beautiful dark bg and nice POV.
