Lovely comp on the dragonfly! Nice look from the Anole.
Thank you very much Kenny!
v Cool DOF treatment on both Roberta!
Thank you Tom, much appreciated.
Ohhhh my Birdie, the dragon is da-bomb! Ultra sweet BG and super fantastic facial expression and eye detaail creating quite a unique display of this creature!
DOF is fun to see when it is a tiny slice like on this Anole. The comp is great for me, this is a shot where for me I like to tinker with the light, I will darken and lighten specific areas to emphasize a feature or color perhaps. Much of this was learned by a good visual study of how Socrate presents his subjects, he is just wonderful at directing our attention to where he wants us to see
I also like this shot for many reasons, its a classic pose and a great effort and display of your elevated efforts of photography and PP presentation!
Good work........great work!
Karl, thank you for you much too kind words. I will rework the anole and post my adjustments.
I like them both Birdie. No nits on 2. In 1, is the shallow dof intentional? For me, I'd like more dof because as is, you have several areas of sharpness, (eye, toes, and upper neck), but they are not connected. I understand is the plane of focus, but it doesn't look natural to me. Maybe blurring everything but the eye would help. I'm not sure - just thinking out loud.
Thanks Ron, the shallow dof was due to the fact that I was at f/4 and no flash . Going to work on the anole with Karls and your suggestions and repost.
