Hello Emanuelle,
Fantastic photo. One frog with four eyes!! Great reflection and sharpness. Beautiful colours and compositon.

Bonjour Emmanuel,
Magnificent capture of this floating frog!
I like speacially th elow POV, almost at water level, that let you present us this very close and personal encounter with the amphibian.
The sharpness of the image is also remarkable, got incredible clear details on the big eyes and their reflections on the water.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Bonjour Emmanuel,

Very nice shot, lovely pose and I really like the somple yet very effective composition, the reflection is just superb and lovely colours too.

TFS Hilary :o)

Very funny view.
Also sharp capture

This is a very intersting photo Emmanuel. I like the subtle blending of the colors. The frog and his reflection are wonderful.

Evelynn : )

That's fantastic, Emmanuel,
such a lovely shot, I like your low POV to see the reflection of the eyes, that's wonderful, thanks

Salur Emmanuel

What an outstanding low angled POV for you version of an "in-swim" :)
Splendid work with once again breathtaking details and charming well saturated colors!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Emmanuel, a nice capture of the little frog here. Lovely green colors throughout. Nice pov on the frog. Cool reflection in the water. Well done, thanks.


Amazing shot. Well done ! Colour and reflection are perfect. So are POV and DOF

Yes, I do like it...and the former is an understatement.
Wonderful compo! Great reflection. Good colours.
Well done, Emmanuel

salut Emmanuel,

olala je mesure le travail qu'il me reste à parcourir quand je vois ton image réalisée avec le 150mm. La netteté de la tête etson reflet est exceptionnel, le point de vue rasant idéal.

Je fais une série sur les coccinelles cette semaine, je veux bien avoir ton avis, notamment sur la dernière (qui est la meilleure) et qui sera publiée vendredi soir.


Hello Emmanuel,
the head with its equally pin sharp mirrored image makes a very unusual, creative image. The straight frontal approach towards the spectator makes the image draw the attention. The very smooth distant background that ends in a mixture of mist and light adds another very artistic touch.
Minimalistic note. Excellent contribution.
Thank you! With best regards,

bonjour emmanuel
vraiment extra,je me demande comment vous avez fait avec un 150mm sans que la grenouille ne plonge,j'adore le reflet et les couleurs sont egalement naturelles.

Excellent shot Emmanuel. The reflection is the perfect mirror of the subject, it gives the viewer the impression that the frog has four eyes. Nicely done! :)

it's a pity I can't add your gallery to my favorites twice, because it has some of the finest images. Take this one, a superb capture of this frog. The green tones, rimpleless water and surfacing frog are just fantastic. Like it very much.
Regards, jacob

bellissima e simpatica foto



fantastic artistic capture, TFS Ori

Hi Emmanuel. Love the reflection in the water and the bright green colours. The white mouth really adds contrast to the image. Nicely shot with a good eye and framed well too. TFS Trevor
