Ready to Strike
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|My husband and I were in Thailand last week on vacation, and went to a snake show. This was one of the cobras just as he was about to strike the handler. The snakes were all very beautiful, and the show was really fascinating. I was given the opportunity to touch this particular cobra.|
I only cropped, resized, adjusted brightness and contrast, and then sharpened and framed the photo. Hope you like it!

Great pose you capture here! Quite good details, even I could wish for more sharpness... But then, if I were to take this picture you wouldn't be able to recognize the creature at all! I like the shadow, as it adds to the dynamics

wow ... there seems like so much intensity of force if this snake were to strike.
very good capture of the snake that does not look that friendly

This is indeed a very nice capture!
The pose of the snake is excellent! Totally specific to them :)Its colors look superb! The surroundings aren't quite natural, but since you've said that it was a show...you could't do anything about it.
Anyway, nicely done! Thaks for pointing it out ;)
PS: how come your son has so many of them?

Hi Joy, Very well timed and sharp capture of this active cobra. I like to see on a photograph like this rather than in the flesh. Well done. Murray.
