[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Red-throated Skink Leiolopisma platynotum. A large uncommon skink about 80mm in length. Both sexes have red-orange throats with the male being much brighter in spring and summer. Found in dry woodland and forest throughout coastal New South Wales. I found this one near Glenbrook about 70km west of Sydney in Blue Mountains National Park. Original image cropped to show detail of the head and body and slightly sharpened.

Interesante captura Chris.
Buena composicion y perspectiva.
Quizás la escena esté algo sobre expuesta, pero es aceptable y el foco es algo soft tambien, pero en general la calidad de la imagen es buena.
Me atreví a realizar un trabajo... espero sea de tu agrado.

Good composition and perspective.
Perhaps the scene is something overexposed, but he is acceptable and the focus is something soft also, but in general the quality of the image is good.
I dared to make a workshop, I hope you like it.

I like a lot , the texture of the skin is beautifully captured, it suffers a little from very bright lighting from the sun, some people here recomend using infill flash to over come this. The person to ask is Callie who I think is away on holiday for a couple of weeks.
