Hello Srikumar,
Very nice photo of this crocodile portrait in great sharpness and beautiful natural colours. Fine composition.
Have a good weekend,
Peter

Ciao Srikumar, great portrit of fantastic creature, fascinating reflections, fine details, wonderful natural colors, excellent sharpness and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

I like how this guy is poking its head out of the water. You managed to get a nice clear shot. Well done. I saw a few of these while in Africa but never really got good opportunity to get really good shots. I find it interesting how you can find both hippos and crocs living together in the same communities although when push comes to shove the hippos seem dominate at least with the adults. Well done.

Hello Srikumar!
Very nice shot of this Nile Crocodile. Very good sharpness and details. Water surrounding the subject is adding beauty to your shot. Thanks for sharing,
Best Regards,
AKBAR

Hello Srikumar,
What a neat shot of this fearsome looking creature. I saw my first one in the wild two years ago in Costa Rica and they are certainly impressive predators. Wonderful focus and just the right amount of exposure allows us to view this specimen in fine detail and beautiful colors. Great work!!

Ciao Srikumar. DOF sharp and focus perfect against the environment of water. Fantastic light.

Hello Srikumar

Great portrait shot of this Nile Crocodile in its natural habitat,
fine POV and DOF, beautiful light, great focus, sharpness, details, TFS

Asbed

Hi Sri,
Good job again. Well focused, sharp portrait, simple enough to be truly spectacular! I like it. Probably a different crop (more from the bottom and the top + a little from left) should help to off-center the head more and to make the whole image even more pleasant (in my opinion). However, just an idea, the original crop isn't bad either to say the least.
Best regards, László
