About the Image(s)

Here is another one of my backyard frogs (I am currently obsessed with). I found this little guy siting on the rock on top of the water fall. I couldn't get in real close, bit focused right on him. I did some adjustments in Lightroom as far as contrast and clarity. I also cropped in from the original because I felt there was extraneous background going on.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

This little guy is definitely well camouflaged. Because of that, it is difficult to see him as the subject. I cropped more off the top and tried to reduce the hilites on him.   Posted: 08/10/2019 13:17:34

I too did not see the frog at first glance. I agree with cropping Since the frog is to me the focal point I would crop the bottom also I brought it into Topaz Jpeg to Raw then Topaz Studio Ai and back to PSCC where I changed it to mono and darkened the background   Posted: 08/10/2019 14:09:21

I like these images that pose a mystery. The eye was my clue until I began to see the entire image which is well camouflaged. I think Judy's cropping is an improvement. I like the deep greens of the moss which adds some life to the shot, so I prefer your color version. The fence is a distraction and downplaying it is beneficial.   Posted: 08/10/2019 14:30:23
