GOLIATH AMONG FROGS
Hi Radomir . For a picture taken at night this has come out so well with the use of the flash. Taken with fine detail and sharp focusing. You have been able to capture he green markings with fine detail. Well taken TFs.
All the best for 2010 for you and your family.
This is such a good gift and a real nice surprise so near to a new decade of the present millenium my friend, a splendid representation of a Levantine Frog from my own country!, captured perfectly with some help from a flash illumination in fine focus and characteristic posture. Thank you indeed for your kind dedication my friend, may God give you best of everything in the coming New Year!
Best regards from Izmir,
P.S.: sorry for the lack of smileys MF, just run out of them...

Splendid fotografowania. Wspaniałe makro.
Mam nadzieję, że otrzymała wiele pięknych prezentów. Wesołych Świąt.
You are a very brave man to run around at night - I would be afraid to walk on a snake!! On top of all you did that - loaded with tripod, camera, flash etc etc.
No wonder - our partners think we are crazy - and we drive them banana :))
I always look up the location before I write a critique and saw, that Denizli - Bakla are nearly due east of Ilzmir, and it appears to be a wonderful place for climbing (it also advertises the "Dry Bean Festival").
Is that gravel stuck to the underside of the frog??
I notice also, that the animal has webs between the toes on the backlegs.
In this part of the world (NE of South Africa)most frogs are without, I guess this is due to the very dry climate and lack of lakes, rivers etc.
I like very much your straight forward presentation and the natural colours. You did very well exposure and focus in these difficult conditions.
My best wishes for you and your family - especially GOOD HEALTH!

Hello Radomir, and "Merry Christmas"
A super shot of this unusually patterned and colored frog, I have never seen one like it before. The detail is super fine and the exposure is right on the money. Very informative notes! Well done!!

With your stunning shot really makes our Holidays perfect. Incredible picture of the beautiful frog. Its details are reproduced fantastically. Shooting distance (I feel that I can touch it If I would like) is amazing as well as POV and composition of the image. My compliments and best wishes for rest days of old year.
