    Cool looking frog. Well lit and composed. Is it a stack? You got both eyes in focus. For some reason the image just looks flat, no depth. I'm guessing a long lens was used, maybe?

    My thoughts too Kevin. Needs a bit of shading and shadow - looks like it was lit from all directions?

    Something not quite right with it, it looks like a painting a bit sort of wooden

    thanks for looking guys

    As said it is a studio shot - lit from above by a single light, macro lens, one shot at 1/125, f11, ISO 100

    Which Macro lens? I ask because I find myself looking to acquire multiple Macro lengths for different effects.

    mine is a Canon EF 100 f2.8 LIS. I am not sure though the focal length of a macro lens would have any effect on the Effects

    Have to say, I'm not seeing too much wrong with this shot. I'd be happy with it.

    It's a lovely frog. The shot does seem a little flat though.

    I like the shot, good colours and pin sharp. Could the flatness be a result of the BG being so uniformly dull and consistently OOF? I often comment that cluttered OOF BGs hurt my eyes, because I can't not try and focus on them, but this one seems to me to go to the other extreme of having no interest at all.
