About the Image(s)

I shot this little guy with my Nikon D750. He was hanging out in my backyard while I was on vacation last week. I actually think he liked getting his picture taken. This is straight out of the camera. I haven't processed it yet. Does it bother you that his body is slightly blurred?

The Christian symbolism and the gecko together is an interesting conversation starter.   Posted: 03/11/2020 19:18:17

Since you have not processed this, I played with it a bit. Not sure I came up with anything special with my processing, but am including it anyway. He is a cute little guy. Wonder what he is thinking? Your subject gecko is darker than the background which for me is a little problematic. I tried to lighten him but was not totally successful. I think part of it is because he is slightly blurred. And, yes.... I would like to see him in sharper focus. I also cropped a little, removed the light boca near the top, added a very subtle vignette.   Posted: 03/12/2020 21:06:14

I like Dorinda's and Leonid's crops and modifications, and here is a little bit more, a brighter gecko and a little cloning.   Posted: 03/25/2020 11:25:48
