[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We have painted our balcony and our long beloved gecko was insulted, left its territory and entered our home. I tried to take its pictures so many times without success. This time it worked.

Hi Ori,
I totally agree with your house friend. Who's paiting a balcony when it is his balcony. :-) Great photo of the gecko. with nice soft light. I do feel it could use a little more contrast and saturation. I did a quick WS on it to show you what I mean.

Hi Ori, wonderful photo of geco. Cleare and bright. This is litle anoreksic ;-) with fantastic position of "fingers".
Good photo , Marjan

Very beautiful creature, nice shot with great sharpness and very nice warm and soft light. I'd rather the pov was a little bit lower.\

Hi Ori!
At first my best congratulations! It is not easy to take a good picture of these creatures (please believe me, I understand you very well :>). I like POV which allow to see entire body of this cute reptile species. Also DOF is very good, all parts of its body are sharp and details (I especially like its legs :>).
Best greetings,

PS. Just for fun - please look at similar species here :>

Hi Ori, I like to see these creatures which are clever enough to walk on walls and even the ceiling. Their pads must have very special features.One day we will learn to do this-perhaps! Maybe nano sized features enable this. TFS. Murray.

I love this shot. It really looks like the geko is hanging on for grim death :-) BUT although the colours are all so bland the geko still stands out. Tail heading up to top left. Hind foot in lower left third, head in central right third!!! Well composed all round in my opinion. TFS
