Perfect. This is so sharp, and with great colours.
Felicidades,,,muy buena imágen.
This is a perfect photograph
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
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.
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! :-)
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
waw...no need for words, it's nature. Great capture.
Parece que o sapinho está bem protegido entre a planta, excelente registro!!!
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!!
Thanks, Michael, for your visit and your encouragement.
