The Toad

The Toad
I found this lovely toad after a rainy day in Guilin, China, I took it home together with some leaves, shot 200 pictures of it in my living room, and set it out again. Not a easy job.

This picture is a good example showing that you dont allways need very expensive gear to make a good photo, this picture is shot with Canons cheapest lens a 50 mm f1.8 (90-100 USD) with natural lighting.

Thanks for looking at my work. Comments are truly appreciated, especially constructive criticisms.

Software used> Photoshop and Photomatix

This a stunning first image that you have posted to your new group In My Opinion. Welcome, I hope that you will be very happy here and will enjoy sharing photos, comments and ideas with the other members. So, this image has real impact. The light, bright and sharp image makes the frog jump out of the screen and that is so impressive. I like the details this is uncovers and allows us to appreciate. I am sure that most of us would not even have given a cursory glance to this creature had you not captured it and then photographed it endlessly! In My Opinion, this is a stunning image that I would love to have taken myself as I'd be extremely proud of it! Here's looking forward to your second post if this is the standard.

like jaykay72, i think the photo is wonderful. i also agree with his comment that the yellow spot is distracting. my eye keeps falling there and not moving away. i wonder if you could lower the intensity of the spot, or make it a bit less yellow as the frog having some similar tones draws the two together. i think the photo is worth the effort of adjusting that. what do you think?

Yeah you are right, I should have removed it, was not aware of it before Yaykay pointed it out, that is the great thing about a site like this, I have spend proberly 10 hours on this project and still missed out such important thing. Thanks to all for your support and kind words. :)

Very good detail here.
Taking it home, well I guess a toad is not too much of a problem, glad I did not try taking home one of the Water Monitors I saw in Thailand.
