Hello Pankaj

Excellent POV.The eye contact is fantastic.The focus and details are sharp with very good textures.The DOF is well done,and the lizard stands out well from the OOF BG.TFS


Hi Pankaj,
From the thumbnail image I thought this was an Osterich. Great shot of this Lizard. The image is wonderfully sharp and the detail in its upper part can be seen well. Nice one.

Eyes can tell 1001 stories! And this one is telling a few!

I like your low PoV as well as the compo. Tfs, JAy

Hi dear Pankaj ,
nice macro with excellent focus.colours is amazing too.

Hello Pankaj,
It is a well composed image, good point of view!
I like the strong diagonal in the composition, and the fine details in the reptile...
DOF spot on and very good colours!

Pankaj, yes it is watching. I love the saw blade kind on the back. I dont know why they look through their eyes like this? Ganesh

Hi Pankaj,
Good shot of the Orinetal garden Lizard. Nice PoV and the bokeh BG is really nice.The posture is really fantastic.
TFS & cheers

Pankaj, you dug out this picture from your 2005 collection when you were not a member here obviously but were doing good nature photography.
This is a very well captured shot of this lizard with fine details on its head and upper body.
Goes to prove nature photography does not begin with TN. On the contrary, TN gets recognition from those who have an inherent love for nature.
Well done and TFS.

Hello Pankaj,
you right it does feel like being watched, the eye contact here is very nice.
Excellent close crop and very nice focus on the eye.

Oh yes, he is watching you :) This is a funny capture of this friendly little one. I like this POV and the way you composed this picture. Details and exposure are very good too. This is well done with a great model :) Thanks,

Hi Pankaj,
Nice to see you back after such an extended 'leave'. This a great portrayal of the lizard and an apt title. They have this habit of rolling their eyes so eloquently. Sharp details and fine focus. I like your POV and the diagonal composition. Kudos.

Hello Pankaj,
Interesting comp and the eye is definitely watching me :)
Very good detail and DOF. A couple of bright spots behind the head, but that would be nit picking. Well done.
