This frog was a guest in our backyard. My husband caught him to show our son, and to save him from the lawnmower. He hopped all over my son\'s arms before escaping to safety under the deck. Lighting is natural diffused light under our patio umbrella.

It's a shame that the frogs head is slightly out of focus.

Too bad the frog was moving too fast to get a sharp focus on it, but I really like the roughness of Dad's fingers compared to the smoother hand of his son...so 7.

I needed some seconds to understand this shot, but after that I think it is the most emotional and romantic shot I found in the challenge up to now. I think everyone having childrens will agree.

Unfortunately there are some technical issue damaging the shot pathos. The f ocus is the first point. It seems there is a too narrow dof. This make the whole shot too soft and make the frog eyes too blur to be pleasant.
A second point regards the differences between the two hands skins. With the light you used they seems too similar to be of immediate impact. I think you could try to change the light set up and/or to soil the father hand to highlight its wrinkle.

With this photo, the viewer is pulled toward the frog. It just seems like the frog is not quite sharp and in focus enough.
