    Hi,

    What do you think of this picture? I've made it in Costa Rica during a hike trough the rain-forest.
    I changed levels, contrast and sharpened the photo a bit afterwards.

    I focused on the eye, but do you think that the rest of the frog should have been more sharp as well? And should I crop more of the right upper corner?

    Ahhhh very nice :). It looks to me that the focal point is a little forward of the eye, perhaps the toes are a little more in focus? Great shot especially with the background the way it is and the stem adding to the perspective like that.

    I like it and I think the stem heading up on the right is nice.

    I really like this pic. The frog has such a disinterested look on its face, which makes me smile. And the composition is nice with the stem leading up-and-to-the-right on a diagonal like that. In answer to your question, though, I think if all of the frog had been in sharp focus it might have worked even better.

    That's a wonderful image.
    Might be a little better with a little more DOF but it's great as it is.
    I wouldn't crop anything.

    Hi everyone,

    I've got a somewhat strange question maybe.

    This photograph has caught the interest of someone, but I have no clue whatsoever about a possible price-tag on this one, or prices of photographs in general. Are there any guidelines?

    When this one is but in a frame it looks like below. How would you tag it?

    Thanks for your help. :thumbup:
