Hi Luis

What a superb composition with this absolutely amazing little frog!
Its colors are fantastic - beginning with the eyes, to the sides and even to its little fingers.
Also the details of this picutre are very clean and sharp, the POV and DOF are great and the light is very well managed.

Bravo and TFS

well done,
tfs & regards

Your logo is very distracting.

Apart from that its a brilliant shot,
beautiful composition and well exposed with the flash.

Bonita captura Luis con bellos colores, intensamente iluminados contrastando con el difuso fondo.
Buen DOF y foco, que permite ver los detalles del anfibio con buena nitidez.
Me gusta el encuadre que elegiste para su composición.
Gracias y saludos... Ricardo

Nice capture Luis with beautiful colors, intensely illuminated contrasting with the diffuse background.
Good DOF and focus that it allows to see the details of the amphibian with good clarity.
I like the framing that you chose for their composition.
Thank you and greetings... Ricardo

Hello Luis,
Fantastic sharp shot of this little tree frog in a very nice pose. Beautiful colours and details against the dark background.
TFS, Ulla

What a wonderful shot, the composition is a very good one, the form of the background makes a perfect frame to show the frog over the leave, the blues-purples makes the pic so rich in colors, not to metion the intense red of the eye.
Have you tryed to put your url in at least half the actual size? It would let us apreciate a lot more of your work.

Very nice luis, the composition is well chosen all with a well controlled flash exposure. :)
