OH MY GOD... I just love this picture!@!!!!!! Great Job!!!!!!!

Thanks for the comments everyone! I was trying to focus your attention on the face and eyes through the direction of the frogs body, leaf placement, and depth of field. I think that the slightly brighter level in the upper left corner does pull one's eyes away. It was fun and my best rated photo yet!

I would like to see more of these longer challanges as I really do not have the time during the week to participate in the weekly challanges as much...

Oh, if you are interested...the common name of this frog is the "Tiger-Legged Monkey Frog" or the "Barred Leaf Frog". They are not poisonous and use their brightly colored flash markings to attempt to startle any would be predators...

This is such an amazing picture...the shallow depth of field and the composition make it one of my favorites on DPC. Excellent work.

The quality and beauty of this one is stunning. The use of the rule of thirds and perfect focus on the eyes makes this a great shot.
04/04/2004 11:46:57 PM
Very nice. Great color, focus and DOF.
04/04/2004 10:37:15 PM
nice detail
04/04/2004 12:57:16 PM
Beautifully shot. Very interesting. Good color. I like the use of depth of field to draw attention to the head. Very good detail.

Do the patches of yellow and balck signify that this is poisonous in some way. He is very agile, is he a tree frog? He has an intelligent expression on his face (perhaps it is a 'she', who knows)? and the picture seems well-balanced.
04/04/2004 10:34:33 AM
Fantastic color and POV!
04/04/2004 04:40:26 AM
Great color and DOF
04/04/2004 01:04:13 AM
Well now, isn't this a good-looking dude! He is so cute..very good job capturing his eyes.
04/03/2004 03:36:02 PM
emphatic 10
04/03/2004 09:57:27 AM
Great composition. Everything in the image leads the viewer's eye to the frog's face: the lines of the frog itself, the shallow DOF, and the leaf on the right that acts as a frame.

My top pick, well done.
04/03/2004 12:01:37 AM
I wish all of the frog was in focus.
04/02/2004 09:36:08 PM
dang that is a sharp picture and great colors and composition lovet the water droplets too
04/02/2004 05:41:39 PM
It is one of those wow shots - 10
maybe a tiny bit wider DOF would help with his back legs.

awesome .... 10

The bottom of this shot is fantastic. I don't think the blurred top adds to the shot.
