Hello Luis,
Another marvelous frog to you collection!
I like a lot the POV used, I don´t know how you get so close to the animal, but details here are excellent.
Good color saturation and sharpeness.
Nice composed too.
Congratulations, thanks for share and happy holidays!

Hello Luis,
A brilliant picture of the poison dart frog. Point of view and focus are excellent, sharpness is pretty good. The background is non-distractive. Clearly, structural details on the dark parts of the frog are difficult to present, a common problem. Nevertheless, some structures are seen here. Thank you for posting this nice picture.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Luis,
Fine shot of the most poisonous frog in Costa Rica. This is well presented with pretty good DOF. Stands well out against the BG.
TFS, regards, Ivan

Hola Luis,
Tu foto me parece preciosa como la mayoria de las que vas subiendo, estoy aprendiendo bastante de la naturaleza de Costa Rica. He intentado hacer un WS para resaltar el ojo pero, solo con sombras y luces de PS, pero me ha variado el color de negro a marrón, supongo que en realidad el tono es más negruzco, pero veo que las patas son más marrón. Espero que no te moleste.
Saludos cordiales.

PD Veo que no tienes activado la posibilidad WS.

Superb exposure and colors on this beautiful frog, Luis.
The markings and patterns are amazing.
I love the golden sheen on the legs and back.
Great POV. The pose is great.
TFS. : )

Fantastic shot Luis.
Great POV and DOF
Superb sharpness and details.
Great exposure.
Well done

Dear Luis!

It appears to me, the more poisonous the prettier these frogs are.

Thanks for sharing, and I add your frog to my theme "F r o g s" :-)
