deep in the swamps of mississippi, there was a ....... no just kidding. taken at home, in the 'studio' i don't have with some big leaves and a stuffed frog toy. i created the webbed feet if your wondering with some almost clear tape. shot from below looking up through some glass with a light from above. tried to make it look as real as possible. darkroom includes cropping a tiny bit, saturation, curve, and sharpen. resize, save, and submit.

great focus on the leave. The shadow of the leaf on the right detracts.

If you could remove whatever was making the other shadow (not the frog, of course), I think it would have helped.

A nice idea for an image, but it seems a little obvious that the frog is a toy and the other silhouette is distracting as its unlear what it is.

The colour here is really nice though, and the high contrast works well too with the detail in the leaf being especially nice.
