My thanks to my toad friend for an afternoon's shooting. We became friends when I saved him from drowning in the pool skimmer where he was stuck today. He appears quite grumpy in the photo, but he was a sweetheart. He happily did everything I asked him to, although he was a bit distracted by a fly... *sigh*

I don't know how to anticipate a score on this one... it's my first really heavily processed image that I've submitted. I think folk'll either love it, or hate it. *sigh* But, really... what can be exciting about a photograph of a camera??

I guess I'll find out with the ribbon winners. *grin*

I'm always so amazed by people who get such great pictures of frogs, little and big. I've never been able to see one that sat still long enough to even get a blurry photo - much less get all posed, situated . . . . or shoot . . . Cheegirl puts fake eyelashes on them sometimes :)

Anyway. . .all my respect and hat bowing off to you miss LydiaToo! This is awesome!

And BLESS you for saving the little fellow :)

A bit over-staged, it becomes cluttered with all the flowers. The frog was a nice idea, but would have made a better company to the camera by itself I think. Still on the better half of the submissions for this challenge.

Interesting setting, although it seems way oversmoothed to me, it distracts from your composition

Nice focus and composition. The flowers look a little over-processed.
