Hi Emmanuel,
I really like your lizard, its colouring is glorious. The surrounding look great and it would be camoflaged we in the tufts of vegetation. It posed nicely for you. The quality of the image is great.

Hello Emmanuel,
A noble pose with good eye contact. Love the detail and that incredible hues of green which contrast so well with the background. Well done. Regards,

Hi Emmanuel,
Excellent pose of this ocellated fellow, the lighting is very nice on this wonderful capture. I like how just its head is in the focal zone, and the soft background couldn't be more perfect for this shot. :)

I wish the depth of focus had been just a bit deeper as the head of this fellow is fantastic. I love the expression and the colors. He's wonderful.

Bonjour Emmanuel,
J'aime bien votre petit lézard vert et je suis jaloux car j'en ai déjà vu mais pas réussi à en capter ;-)
Excellent focus et netteté sur la tête, plus un bon effet de profondeur de champ, jolies couleurs et luminosité.

Hi Emmanuel
Composition background POV and DOF just perfect. Amazing Macro shot.

Hola amigo,
bello pov.
nitidez y genial color...
agradable captura.
Saludos PT

clearly your handwriting, once more: a wonderful pose, amazingly clear details with perfect fall-off in sharpness.
A very lively, even dramatic encounter of great intensity.
Plus precision. And charm.
Minimalistic, sufficient notes.
With thanks, and best regards,

Hi Emmanuel

What a splendid lizard! I really love the pose here!
The head is in perfect focus and the details and textures are so well visible...purely delightful!
The colors and are also superb and i really like the composition here, with the back legs of the lizard and the tail leading towards the blurry BG.

Bravo and TFS

Bonjour Emmanuel
C'est une belle prise en macro de ce lézard.Les détails et couleurs trés harmonieuses.
Félicitations et merci...JP

Les sourires demain

No need to say what all the previous already stated. An exceptional quality photo with sharp details, motivating theme and noise-free result retaining the sharpness. You have probably heard too many bravos and cheers, so here's another one for you.

P.S. Many of us including myself are still trying to capture similar (in sharpness at least) shots with no success. In fact, your work makes us look so amateurs!!!

Fantastic shot
Well done. Regards

Hi Emmanuel,
This focus is done so well. I am impressed.I do like the DOF as it is. The D200 brought out the colours so well. The flow of the little plants surrounding it work nicely in making this a fine composition. Bravo.

Hello Emmanuel,
so it's true, there are T. ocellatus in Southern France! You made a marvellous portrait here! Congratulations, and thank you for presenting the pic.
$My best regards to you,
