    It's really wonderful! Why did you choose that angle? (Just curious.)

    Thank you very much, Katy.

    There's a lot of elements inside the frame that acts like leading lines toward the frog. I merely used them to strengthen the composition of this shot. Here's my idea behind it, Katy:

    Stillness...

    Hope this helps. Cheers.

    Thanks, Willie! It's not a criticism at all. Just wondering. Did you angle the camera at all or was hhe just sticking there? (Sorry, should have asked before. Now, my middle son - who loves frogs and loves this photo - wants to know, too.)

    The frog was actually like that when I saw it, Katy. I rotated the body of the camera just a little bit until I got the right position that I want.

    Cool! Suction cups, eh?

    Actually, did you see the new ebook from David duChemin's group about the evocative image? This would fit well under the chapter on using a limited palette and, I think that it would get an A+, too!

    (btw, Did you hear about David duChemin's fall, too?)

    Thanks, Katy. Yeah, I heard about the fall. I sent him a get well email, and I hope he can read it. I owe a lot of what I have learned about post-processing to this guy. Talk about refining your vision.

    Thank you, Willie and Katy for the discourse. Willie, your illustration and commentary about the composition of your shot was invaluable. I learn so much from everyone's examples.

    Nice work Jiro, being all green, those leading lines were important and you did a nice job with DOF as well.
