Hi Christian,
Excellent shot of this shy caiman.Details, lighting and timing great. Composition, sharpness and colouration so nice. TFS.
Best wishes

Nice shot Christian
Lovely details and reflection of the light in the eye.
You gould add a little more sharpness to the image and 1 or 2/3 exposure compensation would darken the image a little more and therefore pop-up the details even better.
Warm regards and have a nice sunday, Harry

nice expression good colors nice setting. i'd increase sharpness a bit and also increase constrast to bring out the sun reflection.

Good shot !
I like the view close to the water.
A little more contrast could be better but it's already nice.
