[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Recently, I've been messing up with white balance in my shots. Therefore, feel free to post a workshop.

This one was taken at Mocambo Park, a place I usually go to when I want to take pictures.

As for the identification, sorry, but I have no idea at all. These lizards move too fastly, but this one allowed me to take several shots.

Nice detail and sharpness, interesting lines and POV.

Nice shot. I like the DOF and the Composition. The lizzard also has a good pose.

The image seems to have a slight yellow-ish tinge. I did a workshop hope you like it?

Well composed shot Livio with a very good POV. Sharp & detailed with good exposure. What did you set your WB for this one? With such a bright and reflective surface I would've used "sunny" and watched that EV closely..

a very nice composition, your shot is very sharp Livio. The WS done by Johan help a lot.
TFS, Laurent

Oi Livio,
Gostei muito da foto, parabéns.

OMG this is great!
It's too bad the front foot falls into shadow but the colouring is so natural and the depth is quite good too!

Hi Livio
Nice attitude - like "here I come and it is my domaine". Nice composition with the diagonals made by the line in the middle and the lizard's tail. the dof is spot on and the colours look very natural on my monitor. the well blurred background and the blur in the tail add a nice perspective to the picture. - I simply love his attitude - well done.

I think this is a great image, you can tell he was about to make another run for it.
The colours are great as is the composition.
I think he could have been a tad sharper (personally).
Thanks for posting.

Hi Livio,
An excellent capture. The colors look great. It appears the sun was very bright and directly overhead, but you did an excellent job. The pose is great, as it appears he is trying to scare you off.

Very nice picture, Livio.
I don't have to say anything about the WB, you know all about it now.;-) You know how to fix it in PS.
Well composed, good POV and details.
Very well done.

Ola Livio!

Perfect title for this picture! Great pose and great moment, I like wide open composition and POV. But what I like most is lizard's face ;-)

Hi Livio, he does look like he's moving fast too. I love his pointing up toes, quite dainty, but sharp! Good capture, even on such a sunny day. Good job!

Great shot Livio,
Very busy few days for me, so I'm afraid a short visit!!
No time to read notes, but enough time to enjoy your post.Well worth a big green smile.
Thanks for posting.

Hi Livio,
a perfect headline for a perfect shot.
The POV is great and the sharpness very good.
I like it, lovely, thanks

Uma coisa já descobrimos do animal...não sabemos sua identificação... mas sabemos que é vaidoso...He...He...
Esperou e ainda fez pose!
Uma boa foto, bom retrato, nitidez e boas cores.
