    Nice!

    I was at a place in Costa Rica...I don't know if it was a refuge for Iguanas...or if they just liked to hang out there...but there were tons of them.

    Wow! Your second shot is great, Alex... seems like it's moving! The 3rd one is also impresive.

    I cannot see yours right now Mike, due to some filters. I'll take a look later. Thanks for the responses...

    anyway, something in your
    first one bothers me about the grass, did you sharpen a lot? or maybe it was just the light which gave it this grey-ish. fine structured unnatural look?

    Also, sometimes white balance is not ideal.

    still the images give us a feeling of how the place is like and also some nice facial expressions of the iguanas :)

    Anyway, never was to Cozumel, so thanks for sharing!

    Gaaaaah! Although I like iguanas, I think I prefer them from a distance. If I'm not mistaken, BigMikes' pics depict them on a balcony???!! [​IMG]

    Nice pics, Ghastly. (And Mike and Alex)

    It was actually a store, they had a cafe and sold lots of touristy wood carvings and products. There was a balcony on one side of the place, and it overlooked the gorge with all the iguanas....however, they were all over the place...including walking down the isles of the shop! And they were BIG.

    I adjusted the levels and made some sharpening, but I don't think I over di it (still learning, though)... The grass was actually greyish in this part of the island (San Gervasio Archaeological site)

    Ok, I'll work on that... could you give me a specific example?

    Thanks, I still have some stuff to finish processing and dewonkifying and post later.

    Yikes!! In Mexico they'd sunbathe near the place I was staying, but they didn't come that close to people. Thankfully. I loved seeing them though, and you couldn't miss 'em cuz they are indeed big.
