Really great shot, Mr J! IMHO, worthy of a freakin' ribbon. The only distracting thing is he seems to be holding a little hair that sticks out of his mouth...

Awesome shot. The texture of his skin is amazing. The only thing that I might suggest is a slightly wider cropping/framing on the left. Excellent picture.

Great Light -- Super sharp-- nice subject-- I cant see why this isnt a 10-- good luck
09/28/2003 04:16:47 PM
Nice sharpness. Striking subject. I predict this one will do well.
09/27/2003 08:00:15 PM
A tough capture! Great detail in the face.
09/27/2003 03:38:58 PM
Wonderful sharpness and clarity! 9
09/27/2003 02:22:57 PM
Good color, nice crisp clean image. Don't like the blurred rock at the bottom so well. But its not that bad. Personally, I would've cropped the image just above that. Good work tho 7
09/26/2003 07:37:25 PM
very nice closeup, just a slight bit blurry at the bottom, but still a great photo
09/26/2003 01:32:40 PM
Stunning detail and color. This is the Blue Ribbon photograph.
09/26/2003 01:18:21 PM
That would awsome if you could have gotten the whole background black, like the upper corner. Nice lighting and excellent focus.
09/26/2003 11:20:58 AM
The subject is nearly perfect; I soulod have done something different withthe background, perhaps gone with all dark as in the top right.
09/25/2003 08:33:57 PM
This really shows off the shapes of the scales and the textures they form. But the lines of the jowl and leg lead my eye to the fuzzy dark spot behind the dewlap, drawing attention away from the interesting face. A little more space above and in front of the iguana would open it up and help the natural lines draw attention to where you really want it.
09/25/2003 03:29:40 PM
Great face. Wonderful dof and colors. Nice shot.
09/25/2003 03:07:18 PM
I really like this... The "earthy" colors, the DOF, the lighting... Great pic all around. good job!
09/25/2003 12:38:22 PM
wow ... love the colours 10/10
09/24/2003 06:32:40 PM
Nice lighting, lovely detail (including little red ticks?) and a beautiful subject. I've got one just like him myself (called Dylan). He looks very happy, healthy and content. ;) [8]
09/24/2003 12:28:37 PM
Great clarity. Love the colours. What's he been eating?
09/24/2003 11:44:38 AM
This is a terrific shot - Composition, Lighting and Clarity are very good. I think it could be slightly better cropped just a little tighter at the bottom, but now I'm picking. Excellent work.
09/24/2003 10:45:44 AM
Absolutely perfect. Great tones and clarity, and the texture is really amazing. Truly a remarkable shot. 10. This should get a ribbon.
09/24/2003 10:16:21 AM
very cool my friend!

siento un poco amarilla la luz, no sé si era la idea. se me antoja verla con luz blanca. ah, y aunque te rias, sí le falto aire arriba. tanatas clases para nada... ; )
09/23/2003 08:43:08 PM
I have 2 fav critter shots ...this is one of them...10
09/23/2003 03:25:39 PM
I think the beauty of this iguana and the way you have showed him off in the photo with the clarity, color, angle and lighting -- makes this my favorite for the challenge. I hope you win. Solid 10 from me.
09/23/2003 12:46:49 PM
Great use of lighting and focus.(7)
09/23/2003 10:48:38 AM
Best iguana I've ever seen!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great Photo,
09/23/2003 09:43:15 AM
Very nice lighting; it really brought out the texture of the skin.
09/22/2003 05:23:29 PM
Wonderful and engaging. The color is so nice. Excellent shot.
09/22/2003 04:38:56 PM
very fine and noble iguana...textures are very nice and although I might have thought a crop on the lower part, right to the sharper green scales (?) I like what you have done as well
09/22/2003 11:53:44 AM
The color and the detail in this shot are wonderful! I have a Tokay Gecko, which is a turquiose and orange color. I wanted to shoot him for this challenge, but didn't have the time. Your lighting is prfect for this shot... The only thing I would change, if anything at all, would be a solid background. That is not always possible for a shot like thei though, due to environment not being set up for the shot. Well done!

lovely colors, detail and texture. The "dewlap" and front leg aren't in focus, and destract the eye from the central subject. They do provide some context - but i'd experiment with croppin them out.
09/22/2003 03:32:08 AM
Beautiful details in the iguana. Absolutely incredible shadows and lighting reflections help to bring them out. You can almost feel the texture of the skin. Great depth of field really makes it pop out of the picture and feels alive.
09/22/2003 01:59:22 AM
Great color and focus. He is beautiful.
09/22/2003 01:32:52 AM
