    Mr. Welcome Frog

    Hello, had some time today in the parent's garden, and amongst all the whimsical shots this one really makes my wife smile. As an amateur with much of my skillset to 'develop' (love photography humor) I'm curious your thoughts on the overall composition, post processing treatment, etc...As usual, thank you very much in advance.

    Wow, how did you get the critter to hold still for you?

    Seriously though, your shot works for me. To heighten the realism, could you have brushed some margarine on the fellow's legs and belly for that wet-frog look? Maybe you can try this trick next time you visit your parents--if the green guy hasn't hopped off into the weeds by then.

    If he attempts to move, Robert, threaten him with a welder.

    The only thing I would change with this photo is to slightly tone down the bright area of background on the right.

    Thanks Wayne, Geoff, appreciate the feedback (and I'll take your word for it that Frog is a tasty treat )

    I have yet to master knocking down hot spots in Aperture 3.x; will see about adjusting once my skills catch up to the task....
