Nice subtle colors. I know how difficult it is to get pictures of snakes. I have a ball python. Lovely expression with the coils. I gave it an 8 but if you couldave gotten one with its tongue out I would have given it a 10.

I wish the lighting wasnt quite as harsh, but then I wouldn't volunteer to move the thing to a better lighted spot. What kind of snake is that?

Yikes. I hope you had a good zoom for this. His head doesn't seem perfectly sharp to me. Maybe it's the camouflage of his scales. I think I would have liked it without the blurred part of his body behind his head. I find it as effective cropped just above the top of his head, where it is more clear. I like the texture and detail of his body below the head. (shudder - I'm NOT a reptile lover)

Hmmm... I think you need to check out that tutorial thing and learn to curve your colors a little. The brown is a bit overbearing.

Cute title. There's something "off" here, and I can't put my finger on it. Focus, maybe? It seems like there's something missing, and it may be a need for a touch more sharpness in the front. Not quite sure. Nice choice of B&W colorization.

Great angle on the snake, on tis monitor it loks over processed. - 6

This is a great idea. I wish I could see the scales in the background better.

veeery interesting subject, but the image quality is a bit low. my guess to the cause of this is either a very low megapixel camera, compression during resizing, or you cropped it very small compared to it's original size. but besides that, it really meets the challenge well.

It looks rather soft, which is a problem when conveying textures

the high contrast doesnt work very well here. also not the cyan-nish colour on the scales on the bottom part of the photo. if you would have done sepia, maybe you could have done it all the way. there also seems to be something weird about the overall cropping of the photo.
