I've had the idea for this shoot for a while, so when I saw this challenge, I had to go for it. I didn't have a frog handy, so I rented one (you really CAN find anything on Craigslist). His name was the Hulk, and he wasn't too keen on wearing the crown (which I got from a Barbie Doll), but he tolerated it.

I had a hard time choosing between photos; hopefully I chose the right one. Here are a couple of my favorite outtakes:

'....' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/57775/120/728713.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/57775/120/728713.jpg', '/') + 1) . '....' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/57775/120/728714.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/57775/120/728714.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

The model is Nhi Do and the MUA was Nicole True.

I love the shot you kept! I like that you can see the dress and see that she is acutally rolling around in the forest in that beautiful gown. And with the hair on the ground it totally looks like a Vogue advertisement minus the frog! Awesome job! ;)

Briana! CONGRATULATIONS! This photo is absolutely awesome! And kudos to your outstanding green model. Not quite as beautiful as your other model :) but a striking figure nonetheless. Congratulations on an honorable mention! I wish 4 ribbons could have been given out for this one.

Congratulations and it's nice to see your shots here again! I can see what you mean about having difficulty picking your entry. Those are some nice outtakes.

ETA: And a special congrat's on your new non-ribbon high score! You just have to hope no one at the top DQs and ruins this for you :P

Love the composition and different colours, the pink satin dress looks great against the greens. The little crown on the frog is so cute!

LOL! wonderfully thought of and completed :)

Poor froggy! Clearly not impressed by the princess.

luscious tones and textures all around - stupid frog...very stupid frog...

Love It! The frog looks like he has had enough already!

Nicely set up shot - is that a real frog wearing a crown? Nicely done!

good lighting and concept, girl's eye makeup a little distracting. However kudos to her for not minding cradling a froggie and smooching for him! 8

Lovely shot, really like all the colors and detail.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very pretty composition. Personally would have liked to see her eyes, but I realise this would have been awkward, given that she is looking at the frog.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/10/2008 02:05:42 PM
What IS this frog's problem?! You should have asked me to help. *Ribbitt*

hehe... dumb frog
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautifully laid out with a very beautiful girl. I thought it had given her warts until I realized it was flowers against her skin. I think if she was holding the frog face to face with her and closer to her puckered lips it would help it.

Reluctant? Doesn't know when he's hit the jackpot then, does he? Lovely photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful model and lovely done makeup, hair and gown. The frog (which I assume is to be the focus of the shot to match the title) tends to get lost to the model's beauty and hidden in her hands

I like this one after the challenge tell me how to make the skin look so nice.
