Hi Aviad

Fabulous shot of this amazing viper, i have never seen one before, the composition is just superb with a great POV, fine details and I love the warm colours and lighting. One question please, did he get a Gerbil?

TFS Hilary :o)

Shalom Aviad... una gran captura con excelente agudeza, foco, profundidad y iluminación, produciendo un efecto muy agradable.
Me gusta mucho el punto de vista captado bien bajo, con apropiada elección del encuadre.
Una presentación de calidad, sin dudas.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Shalom Aviad... a great capture with excellent sharpness, focus, depth and lighting, producing a very pleasant effect.
I like a lot the very low point of view captured, with appropriate election of the framing.
A presentation of quality, without doubts.

Hi Aviad

A true beauty - both the animal and the shot!
The low POV is really great here, the sharpness of the details impressive and the light awsome.
Also the DOF is very good and the composition wonderful.
Great work! A Favorite :)

Bravo and TFS

Hi Aviad,
Nice light , i really like the horns.Probably you could crop off the OOF sand from the bottom, it would make it even more upclose & personal.
