Perfect! I've seen pictures like this only in National Geographic!

A beautiful shot, Marilyn.

Just think, how many beautiful creatures like this are destroyed with each rain forest tree cleared for cash crops. It makes me sad :(

Que beleza de imagem. :-) Saudações desde Portugal

Marilyn Whiteley on July 16, 2007

Many thanks to all of you for your comments. It was a real privilege to see this little guy (or gal). And posing so well, too!

Fortunately in this area there is still much untouched rain forest.

This is a super shot Marilyn! Everything about it is perfect: composition, colours, sharpness and the reflection of the frog finishes it perfectly Congrats! What camera and lens did u use? Travel greetings from Belgium.

Marilyn Whiteley on July 16, 2007

Thank you, Kristine. I especially appreciate your comment since I so enjoy and admire your portfolio.

I'm almost embarrassed to say that this was taken on my first digital camera (2004) which now seems almost primitive: an Olympus Stylus 300, 3.2 mp with a 3x optical zoom. I chose it partly because it's weather-resistant, and I knew we could run into rain in Guyana. But obviously it served me well! (Now I've passed it on to my husband, and I have an Olympus ultrazoom [18x] which I love. But I mustn't take it out in the rain!)

Great picture! :-)

kristine hannon on July 18, 2007

You're welcome Marilyn and thanks for your compliment! By the way, don't be embarrassed about your 'old camera', I took analoque pictures untill very recently (except from my last dragonfly pictures who were taken with a pocket Nikon, all mine are old scans), only this week I baught my first 'real' digital reflex: the Nikon D80. So I'm brand new to digital photography! Soon I'll be posting my first shots... No matter what camera you use, you have an eye for a picture and your work is great! Travel greetings from belgium.

Marilyn Whiteley on July 18, 2007

Kristine, you should have a wonderful time with the D80. I look forward to seeing the results.

I got my first SLR before you were born, when the idea was fairly new! (See, I have looked at your interesting web site.) But when I upgraded from the little Olympus digital, I decided that at this stage of my life, I would make better use of a camera that gave me less to carry and fewer decisions to make in a hurry when we travel. As I said, I'm very happy with it, but I still think of SLR photography as "real" photography.

Rafael (Retrocool) on July 19, 2007

That is simply a wonderful beautiful picture. But I would not say you are not doing real photography if your photos are coming out as spectactular like this one.

This to me is a real photographer photo. SLR or NOT, it is just a great photo from a person who has an eye for such beauty.

Note: There is a fashion photographer who uses throw away cameras to take pictures! Go Figure!

Marilyn Whiteley on July 19, 2007

Thanks, Retrocool. I appreciate that.

Most of the time I can remember that it's not just the camera that makes the photo. Years ago I would make calendars as Christmas gifts for my parents and my husband's parents--Cibachrome prints of slides. When I showed them to my co-workers, some said, "You must have an excellent camera!" My 25-year-old Contaflex was good, but I wanted to tell them that it hadn't taken the photos by itself!

Rafael (Retrocool) on July 19, 2007

I agree!

I say what they don't know can't hurt them!

I still work with film from time to time, myself, specially with infra-red!

Melkan Bassil on July 24, 2007 need for words, it's nature. Great capture.

Paulo Yuji Takarada on July 28, 2007

Parece que o sapinho está bem protegido entre a planta, excelente registro!!!

Marilyn Whiteley on July 28, 2007

Many thanks, Melkan and Paulo.

Very Good Shot Marilyn!

Digital is nice, easy to work with, but I still find working with slide film just as enjoyable.

Please keep up the Great Work!!


Marilyn Whiteley on July 29, 2007

Thanks, Michael, for your visit and your encouragement.
