[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a simple field turtle which I found in the northern part of the Negev desert. When he saw me he entered his head into the armor, so I can't show you any portrait. So I choosed a view from above, which I find very interesting.

Gran composicion Yitzhak!

You always find the detail exact to turn a photo something beautiful.
The idea to catch the shell of a turtle of this form, is brilliant.
Great composition Yitzhak!

Your classical approach of going for the detail worked out well here, Yitzhak. The shell of the turtle provides interesting patterns, textures and colors. Well captured.

Excellent idea but I wonder if it is as sharp as it could be. Original and simple, well done.

If only these patterns could talk - This is a very nice approach and your DOF i great. You do have a bit of over exposure here - must have been harsh lighting conditions as well. Good work here

Now this is VERY original. Well done, Sir! As is, I like it. I would turn it also through say 30 degrees to get a different pattern on the shell.

Very interesting capture Yitzhak. I like the patterns and the colours. Well seen.

Bonjour Yitzhak
Comme d'habitude une composition répétitive très originale transposée sur les animaux
J'apprécie la texture des écailles de la tortue.
Bientôt ce sera le tour aux crocodiles ?:))

Hello Yitzhak
As usual a very original repetitive composition transposed on the animals I appreciate the texture of the scales of the turtle. Soon it will be the turn with the crocodiles?:))
