Excellent shot!
Great lighting, nice pose, good colour and details.

Great greens in the photo Radu, well exposed for his face and caught in an interesting pose. A great photo!

Nice portrait Radu!
I like the pose and the nonchalant expression.
I can see that the lighting was very in the green range. That gives a nice color to the lizard, but it contaminate the wood it stand on. A local correction to make it brown like the BG would be looks better. I may try a workshop on it. TFS

I'm the big green boss here.
He looks very majestic from this POV, very well done. Very good sharpness and colours.
The light is nice from the side.
I like it, thanks

Nice composition of the subject and colors and the darker background really sets off the lizard.



I'm not able to see Mona Lisa smile ;) but no doubt there is something in this pose.
I guess this green colour isn't natural, however it match well with dark BG. Whole photo looks quite gloomy and in this case that's very good.
It's surprising seeing here only 5 (now 6) critiqes :)

I hope you know these are not any "exchange points", but the honest ones... :)
