[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I keep thinking how sad you'd have been when you deleted all your shots from TN, Big Bro.
You've taught us all so much about herpetology, your subject, and also a very human value, the ability to give and share.

This is a tribute not good enough for you, but I know I'm not a great photographer.

This is just to say 'Thank you' for teaching, sharing, caring, and encouraging me, and everyone else....

This one's for you, Big Bro (Bayram Gocmen).

Thanks once again!

Hello Goldy,
wow...another exciting shot for this excellent head of a lizard.
So close and so nice added colours in the background.
the details on the head is so well seen.
what an excitement!


Ciao Goldy. Exciting warm light and colours like gift for Bayram. Nice compo.


Wow Goldy, this is amazing
Lovely capture of this lovely reptile. Nice closure up and nice bright BG. A bit soft in sharpness but I liked your composition. Good work


Ciao Goldy, splendid portrait of fantastic creature, good details, great warm colors and excellent sharpness, lovely dedication to our friend Bayram, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Goldy,
Wow! Certainly, you and your Fuji HS10 camera bridge make things very interesting! ... this is a photo with good technical quality and certainly difficult to take. The background looks achieved with a reflex! ... There is some grain in the lizard's head, but the overall result is very impressive! Congratulations. Good job!

PS: I see you edited with Photoscape is a good software and I would have yielded very good results. I recommend you also install GIMP for a more advanced post-processing. Additionally, I use NeatImage to mimimize digital noise. I've almost forgotten the existence of Photo Shop, combined this software! :)

Regards, TFS,


Hi Goldy,

Dear Goldy!

It's a fine dedication for Bayram and a surprising picture. The lizard's head in front of the red background creates a strange and stunning impact, highlighted by a certain softness of the picture.

Kind regards


Hi Goldy,

Very good image from you with great pov, sharpness and details.
Fine colours.
Great dedication to Bayram Goldy.


Hi Goldy. impressive shot of this beautiful lizard. The pov, dof and composition are phenomenal. Great tribute to Prof. Bayram.
TFS. Kind regrads,

Hola Goldy

Imagen buena en tonalidades, con ese fondo extraño de color, conjuntando con el amarillo de este pequeño lagarto.

Un saludo de Antonio

Hi Goldy,

The subject is well framed. The close-up pont of view is showing the details and colors of the reptile. It is clear and precise. The afternoon light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.
