Eublepharis angramainyu (Western Leopard Gecko, Leopard Gecko) [in Turk. Leopar Keleri]

Hi friends, firstly thanks for all constructive comments/critiques to my yesterday post! Today another post of this beauty, but this time I’ve used more low –almost half- f/ value (i.e., more open aperture) according to previous shot, increasing the shutter speed to freeze the movement. I also attached a portrait as a WS showing its climbing. By the way, I forgot to write that all shots of the species were taken in almost full frame.
Hope you can like this too.

TFL and Have a nice new week!

Hallo Bayram
Great full frontal shot with the face and upper body in focus and the rest of the body almost blurred out. This Leopard Gecko has mesmerizing eyes and it looks as if a small bowtie was painted on its snout. The green grass compliments die Gecko well.
Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Very dynamic capture Bayram with great dept of field created by appropriate Aperture settings!Good colors, sharpness and most of all composition! Bravo!!

Hellow Bayram,
Perfect perspective as you got face to face with the inquisitive leopard gecko.Razor sharp face showing those attentive huge eyes and interesting and unique patterns and colouration.Shallow depth creating the head as the first point of focus.The greens of the grass in the foreground giving some nice contrast, well done and TFS.

Bayram hocam merhaba,
Nefis bir aksiyon karesi olmuş, kelerin derisi çok ilginç geldi bana, sanki şeffaf gibi bir his veriyor.
Elinize sağlık

Selamlar hocam,

Bayram hocam, son üç karede resmen fotoğrafçılık dersi vermişsiniz:) Başlıklar da hepsinde uyumlu. Kendine eğlence arayan arkadaş da peşinizi bırakmıyor nedense. Aman bulaşmayın hocam. Üstünüze sıçrar. Selam, sevgi ve saygılarımla,

Ciao BBB. Perfect details on head only MF! Some DOF problems but from this POV impossible to obtain best results.

Hi Bayram
Another great shot from you!
I like this Leopard Gecko!
Is perfect!
Great details, very sharp!

Hello MF!
Very funny capture. This beauty has a lot of courage and keeps her "smile" in front of you. Of course, it is difficult to choise the correct speed to to freeze the movement in such a situation because you did not expected to meet this beauty. You had to react quickly and you did it well. Have a nice evening,

Merhaba MF Prof. Bayram,
your serie is excellently executed with stories and dramatic composition. This well focussed on the eyes really give a special effect and the grass add some exciting elements to make your shot meaningful.
