Hello Vipin

Good shot of this beautiful little snake, nice colors detail,composition and snake. Job well done, thanks for sharing!

Regards Hedesan

This image had some potentials to be really spectacular artistic work, Vipin. In my opinion more wide depth of field is necessary her which can be achieved if you step back a bit and cropp the final image. Now seems to me that you have been quite close to the snake and even f/25 is struggling to keep in focus the expose part of the reptile. Good contrast and pleasant composition. The sharpness also can be improved.

Hi Vipin,
A great shot of this elusive snake.As George commented,a little more DOF would have done wonders espicially when you have lots of leverage on ET.

I like it! The eye is pretty sharp. I like the
light and the space in the frame. Well done!
