Caminando por el bosque en la noche, son muchos los ojos que nos observan y pocos los que podemos ver. Un espécimen de Hyla punctata nos observa con curiosidad, pues posiblemente seamos los primeros humanos que ha visto en su reino.

No note? This image really deserves a note. Was it taken in the wild? What kind of frog is this? A superb image but the lack of note lets it down. Sorry.

Beautiful shot! The colours are fantastic, with the right contrast! Do you now if this frog is dangerous?

Excellent shot of this unusual frog, Yuri. Coloration and detail of the spatulate fingers is outstanding.


Very well done. Thought I would add a few constructive comments (sorry, my spanish is not good enough to try here!).

I would like to have seen a little more Depth of Field here. The tip of the snout is a tad out of focus as is the underside of the body. It seems odd that f/7.3 wasn't a low enough f/stop for an E5700. I would think you would get plenty of depth at that setting with a point and shoot.

I find myself watning to see more of the top of the frog, particulary the head. A higher angle might help, although it would obviously change the personality of the shot.

Did you use a flashlight to help you focus? I see an orange cast to the top of the head that I usually associate with using a flashlight to help focus and compose. Or is the frog really that red on the orbits?

Keep up the good work!


Very funny image!
Great colour and detail, excellent lighting, good background.

The 'pose' you captured here is very interesting, and the way you composed the photo is good. Well done.

Superb shot Yuri!
Tree frogs are lovely subjects and this is very good capture of one of these.
Colours are lovely, dark BG looks great and whole has nice details.
I like it very much.

Woooooow ! What a nice and interesting frog that you have very well captured ! Details and colors are great ! Congratulations Yuri and thanks for sharing this beauty.

It's a lovely picture, exposure and focus are good. Background seems unnatural, but I understand it is because of the light fall off of your flash on a distant background. Anyway the dark background is very effective to concentrate people attention on the frog itself. It's a very CUTE picture. I love it. TFS

Vey nice
very well done
nice colors and compositoon

Exellent and funy job Yuri! Amazing and colorful kind of frog acrobat. Composition is perfect. Nice details in dark background looks great.

Hi Yuri,
this is a lovely little guy with pretty colours. I like the dark background, a very good contrast. DOF and POV are excellent, perfect job, thanks

Good Day Yuri:
I love this frog. Though frogs are very plentiful in Florida, they are not nearly so beautifully coloured. This one is like a sparkling rainbow.
Your picture is very well composed and the clarity is outstanding. This allows us to see great detail and colour.
A job very well done!

Praticar com criticas e WS é treinamento também como é EDUCADO.

I have just found this wonderful image, how better could it be? So much character and beautifully exposed and composed. He/or she/ is lovely with such vivid colours and textures. Looking at your camera makes a statement. Beautiful all round. Nice and sharp perfect dof.
