My 3 month old Chameleon
Cute little guy, eh

Lit in my whitebox
W/ Green background
The title is the most common colour used throughout my photo
Greeny, yellowy kind of colour.
Which is my favorite colour :)


Applied neat image to soften overall look
Some shadow&highlights and sharpening as well

Thanks everyone for the comments, and thanks to my little chameleon Murphy for being such a great model.
2 ribbons in a row is more then I could ask for :)

Those little guys are so interesting. What a great capture. Congrats.

03/06/2008 12:35:28 AM
Wow! I was wondering if this would do this well. I thought it might get hurt by the narrow DOF. It works for me because of the great blend. Good job and congrats on the ribbon.

Ladies and Gentlemen we have the winner. Nothing I can say about this to improve it so I'll just hit the 10.

Beautiful work and the textures are just amazing! I fell like I could touch this little guy (or I suppose it could be a gal) and he (or she) would flinch!

Striking! Vivid and compelling. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/03/2008 11:47:39 AM
Very nicely done, the background matches well, and the yellow creates a great outline.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2008 03:37:35 PM
cool lizard. I'd like to see his whole face in focus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2008 09:46:16 AM
Almost looks like he's got a large nose and is facing right! 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/01/2008 06:02:59 PM
Goodness, that's vivid! I like how parts of the critter almost melt into the background. Love the shallow DOF choice too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/01/2008 03:23:19 PM
This guys is cute. Love the colors and texture but have mixed feelings about the DOF.

Is that how many times you've taken his/her picture? LOL! Nicely done, very sharp, you can feel the texture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2008 08:57:44 PM
Great detail. Could have gotten his nose in focus and raised the score a bit. I really like the colors and patterns.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2008 10:37:35 AM
Beautiful, vibrant colors. I love the values and the rough texture of your subject. He gets a little blurry but that is to be expected wih how close you were. Really nice shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2008 10:15:57 AM
Don't get the title, but a cracking image.
