My window, looking out, little lizard that looked like he had a close brush with something dark but managed to get away. He left after I took this picture so no change to make it better.

I really like the composition of this... the grid and the lizard really make a good scene. I took the liberty of downloading it and playing with it (deleted it right afterwards) and think it would have scored much higher with some Shadow/Highlights and contrast... perhaps even Black and White... to make the lizard more of a silhouette and the background to be less noticeable, but still be an interesting background. Good shooting, for sure.

Something needs to be in focus in this picture. I would venture to say that it should be the lizard.

Great capture of the moment! The background is a bit distracting. Also a bit pity of the converging lines.You could have prevented it by positioning yourself a bit lower and right. Regards, Marco

The grid pattern works well to set off the lizard, though I wish there were just a bit more detail on the lizard itself. As a sillouette, however, it has interest.

I'd like to see more of this little guy. your gamma adjustment will lighten him up without blowing out the background too much. wonder how he lost his tail? :)

Clever -- good eye! The DOF really brings out the little guy.

I think this would look awesome just as a silhouette.
