This is fantastic. I could see this on the cover of National Geographic. Very nice job.

What a little cutie! I love having the alligator and waterlily in the same shot. The composition and color are terrific. And alligators always have such nice smiles and bright eyes. Congratulations on the good score and top ten finish.

The only thing about this that I would change is to remove the wisp of grass from in front of his eye.

Ok Nora, we're not just gonna stick a star to your forehead, we're gonna tattoo it. Congrats on another top scorer. Great color and clarity. I cannot get that lens to perform like this for me! Hmm maybe can I borrow your gator?

great colours and details, the subject is great. perhaps you could clone out the green line across the alligator on the left but is only unhelpful perfectionism. 10
