Hi Gert! So nice to see you drop by and many thanks for all your kind comments and time! I really means a lot to me to see you're still checking up :)

In all fairness, the shot you see here is about a 50% crop of the original photo...so i wasn't VERY close to it :) Even so, the 150mm lens proved very useful and gave me a good and fast focus on the snake, even since it moved around all the time.

As for the contrast issue, i also thought about that quite a lot before uploading. I know the picture looks like it lacks a bit (especially in blacks) but the truth is that this species really blends well with the sand and the rocks there and that these pale and washed out colors are much closer to the actual look. That's why i chose to leave the picture unaltered from that point of view.
Anyway, again, i really value your opinion.

Thanks for dropping by and only the best wishes
