Looking through some of my older shots, I stumbled across this one taken during the DoF challenge. Too bad it's a couple of months old..
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/20925/thumb/95400.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/20925/thumb/95400.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

What do you think, would it have done well on the Macro challenge?

Thanks,
Ara

it's decent... the focus seems to be on the hand, not the lizard. The head of it is blurry. I'm more drawn to the lines in the hand than the lizard.

Yea, I'd possibly recommend having the lizard face the camera and have it on your fingertip or thumb. :-\

Probably not. Do to being kind of small. A bit more in your face, then yes.

Ok, thanks. Anyone else?

I agree with the others, in that the point of focus seems to be the hand.
At 1/125 sec, I suspect the lizard moved at the point of releasing the shutter, due to the blurring of the head.
A tighter shot would have done much better, or having it on a fingertip for instance.

Just my 0.02¢

Yeah, the little dude wouldn't stop moving. I'd try to compose the shot with my hand stretched out far enough away to focus, hold still and he'd already have moved. I should have brought a tripod for my hand, a tripod for my camera and a bottle of behave-all to squirt on the subject... =]

BTW, can anyone ID it?

Well, he was singing Everybody was Kung-fu Fighting, and he did try to sell me insurance, but I wasn't sure.

LOL

I agree on all the topics about the focus. What a cute little guy!
