Tree Frog on Dandelion

Post by acerola »

I just happen to met this guy in a forest last spring on a dandelion. And he let me take a couple of pictures. I'm waiting the new opportunity this year.

Excellent light, I think blur too intrusive, it would be enough even footing not blur. :D

I like the vivid color, contrast and the way the blur on the right edge helps frame the frog.

If this is full frame, you got awesomely close to a wild frog! Good stalking technique!

The shallow depth of field is "interesting". It isn't my favorite, but I don't totally dismiss it, and because of the strong colors you have here, it does work.

The blur on the right side divide the people. I like it of course, thats why I made it this way.
It was a very small frog. And he has such a good time on the flower that he did not care me much.

I like it! I think you've got just enough DOF on the eye!

That frog must be /Tiny/! (Or you've got /Huge/ dandelions!! ;)

I have these little frogs around my place too and happened to get a couple of shots of them. Really a nice photo I think using selective focus as you have, great color. :D

Just GORGEOUS !!!. The DOF and selective focus is totally amazing in my opinion. The shallow DOF and the bang on focus on the eye with the colours and details just rocks !!!.

If this was mine (I wish), I would make a large print and hang it on a wall. It really is that esthetically good.

All the best and man, this is so neat. :wink:

Worry about the image that comes out of the box, rather than the box itself.

Danny: My wife asked me to make big prints from tree frogs. Three of them is hanging on my kitchen wall. This is one of them. :)
