A nice shot.
Composition and DoF are spot on.
Excellent detail and colours.
A great note too,very well done.
Gerhard, It looks like the snake is looking at you. Good portrait. I experimented a little and come to the conclusion that cropping part of the bottom and left increases focus on the snake. (sew my WS).

I have a huge phobia/fear of snakes, so as my therapy I force myself to photograph small garden snakes...this snake I would have run from...I know, silly me. Anyhow...this is a lovley protrait and I think the composition is just right. I looked at Jan's workshop on this photo and although I understand the point, I like the fact that this snake in the original has somehwere to go...there is enough space between the head of the snake and the direction it is going in before the photo ends.

En Argentina, no es muy común tener mascotas de este tipo.
Yo a fines de los 70, llegué a tener serpientes de hasta 4 metros de largo como una de ellas... siempre me atrajeron los ofidios.
Gran captura por su nitidez y colorido.
Es imposible retratar a estos animales de cuerpo completo si se desea obtener un primer plano de los mismos.
In Argentina, it is not very common to have mascots of this type.
I by the end of them 70, got to have serpents of up to 4 meters in length as one of them... always attracted the ophidiens to me.
Great capture by its colorful and clearness.
It is impossible to portray these animals of complete body if it is desired to obtain a first plane of such.

Great picture Gerhard. Very sharp and lots of details - as usual. The blurred background is perfect and I love the composition with the snake coming in from the corner - very good job. Very informative note too.

Very good job on the compo, Gerhard. Two strong diagonals, one significantly more vivid-looking than the other, and fine use of DOF. I like the way in which the sunlight accentuates the texture of the snake. Well done.
