Feel free to bash (constructively though)

G'day Greg

As the song goes ... he's my brother, he ain't heavy

However, from the facial expression [great!!] I feel it's more like she's thinking .. geez I wish the lazy sod up there would bugger-off and hop off somewhere else ...

cc- you've chosen a small DoF to emphasise the eyes - and for that you've succeeded, and the cross-lighting works very well too. 8/10

Regards, Phil

Great use of DOF, and very accurate color rendition. And the lighting was very harsh, yet you handled it well.

You asked for "constructive bashing" so... Just to be picky - these are toads, not frogs.

PS - here are some photos of their friends from here in East Tennessee: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/pe...ark-masks.html

Really nice photo. I guess that's a sure sign that spring is upon us!

What's to bash? I really like it! You've handled the harsh conditions very well.
