nice photo. the branch and the lizard are in good focus but the background is so blurry that its actually a bit disracting.

more focus

What a great capture. He is really camouflaged! This is a wonderful shot and I hope it will be appreciated. The only thing that is problematic for me is that the colors are so similar and muted that it loses a little impact. I don't know if black and white would look better or worse. Another idea is bumping up the contrast.

Very nice pose - be sure to thank the lizard for that. Focus is good for this shot, and I like the level of detail.

I like how the lizard blends in with the branch! The photo is great

Could have backed off a bit and made the shot less about the lizard and more about the branch which happens to have a camoflaged lizard on it.

I think too many people misinterprated the challenge. A photo doesn't qualify for the branch challenge JUST BECAUSE there's a branch somewhere in the photo. Try getting more creative!

Good use of DOF. Perhaps this shot could use a touch more sharpness and/or a contrast adjustment to really bring the foreground and main subject out. Also, it would be a much more interesting shot if the lizard was shot at a lower angle to make it look like you are sharing the branch with him. Good luck in the challenge and keep shooting!

This image is lacking in technique. The constrast is rather shallow. The far branch competes with, rather than compliments, the head of the lizard.
As for the challenge topic...your title says it. This is a lizard on a branch, not a branch with a lizard on it.

I like how you actually have a subject ON the branch, not just a plain old branch like in other entries.

Nice shot. Kinds hazy looking though. Maybe use more saturation to bring out the colors a bit.
