    G’day Deb,

    These make very good subjects as most times they will pose for you before they scurry off.
    You have caught this one in great light and have made a very good composition for this reptilian study.
    I di feel though that you could improve this by:
    1. Lowering the highlights slightly along the lizard’s lower jaw, and
    2. With some careful Clone Stamp work, remove the two blades of grass above the dragon to open up and “unclutter” the area.
    Good use of depth of field, nice sharp focus and lovely natural colours.
    Good attempt that girl!


  • I would love to have taken some light of his chin!!! My programs dont allow such detailed “work”..not that I’ve found as yet anyway!! LOL…the cloning…yes..could "handle’ that!!Appreciate very much your most welcome suggestions!!! Thank you!!! *-)
