Found this tiny green frog in the garden and thought she'd enjoy a pea feast! She was very willing to sit on the warm spoon in the sun and let me take her picture. After a minute, she was ready to go home and I returned her to her hangout by the hose.

Shot in RAW and even though it was a good capture, it needed fair amount of post work: cropping, levels, hue/sat, burning in around the frog's eye, contrast & sharpening for the web.

I like this picture...now, let's roll the dice and see if anyone else does!

My husband would probably want to throw out the dishes after this shot, but I think it is whimsical as well as colorful. 8

Great idea! But this would be better without the bowl and the spoon, just green peas and the green frog.

The idea is nice and the frog is cute. I might have cloned the lights reflecting in the bowl edge.

Ah so the princess who slept on a pea is the same one who kissed a frog? Cool! Cute idea!

This is cool. Nice coloring the little bit of blue from the bowl really helps the greens pop. The frog is a nice touch. Hope you get a nice score for this.

A tighter crop (from the bottom) would have worked out better, IMO. Also might be a bit too contrasty. Otherwise well done.

very sharp and great colour...I wonder if it would have been better to crop tighter and leave out the plate...very good 8
