I have cropped out some more distracting features to give more impact o the Iguana.

I have just cropped a little of the OOF area from the right, and a bit from the bottom to enhance the composition.
Also boosted the contrast slightly.

Hi Ganesh,
I attempted a workshop to try and suggest a good composition,but I don't think I've done very well really.
A lot of detail was lost in the rotation,so I've had to sharpen it again.
Also,I had to fill in the black corners cut off by the rotating and cropping,and I cloned over a couple of the brighter leaves, but my cloning was a bit rushed, so not as good as it might have been.
Anyway, that was roughly what I had in mind.
Hope you don't mind me mucking about with your photo like that :o
Cheers

Hi Tom,
This workshop isn't ideal,due to the resolution (and my limited editing skills) but just an example of how the image might be cropped for impact.As you can see,some bark detail and leaf has been cropped from the right too.(Although I don't mind them personally,the 'official' line would be that they are a distraction)
I wasn't sure whether or not to apply sharpening again after cropping.I did in the end,but think it almost looks oversharpened now.
It gives you an idea of the sort of thing you can do anyway.
Cheers
Steve
