Hola Hernan.
Interesting pose of this guy. It seems a bit sad. You have reflected its expression very well. Colors are natural and well saturated. Did you use digital zoom? Well done, bravo!
Un cordial saludo amigo mio,

A estos sapos los tenemos bien conocidos ya que son bastante amigables como para poder retratarlos.
Un adecuado punto de vista para captar buenos detalles del anfibio sobre todo en su verrugosa piel.
Buena iluminaci[on, sin exceso de reflejos que muchas veces provocan, con buen foco y nitidez.
Por la abundancia que deben tener por tus pagos de estos bichos, buscaría otro entorno o ángulo para obtener un fondo más claro o limpio.
Un fuerte abrazo y muchas felicidades... Ricardo
