About the Image(s)

Recently in Puerto Rico, this little guy was hanging out on the tree I was sitting next to. He seemed to like having his picture taken. As he should, I liked the way he blended into the tree. I shot this with my iPhone and cropped and did some post-processing in Photoshop Express.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

Unusual tree to be gray, but I have never been to Puerto Rico. It does really blend in with the tree, good eye to have seen it. I would crop some more off the bottom.   Posted: 05/13/2023 10:44:08

Good eye to see it! It looks like he was posing for you. You have reasonably good focus. I agree with Tom that you could crop up from the bottom.   Posted: 05/23/2023 09:25:53

Cool shot; he does pose well. Although the camo is as nature intended, your subject gets a little lost in the wash of similar tones. Brighten him up a little so we can see him smile.   Posted: 05/27/2023 16:49:41

The more you look at this shot, the more you see. The angle of view up the trunk of the tree is interesting and step to the left or right would change the picture entirely. Gordon has the high ground and it looks like he knows it. Is that numerals in the bottom right corner? Almost looks like 1943 or 47.   Posted: 05/29/2023 21:17:07

Hi Jessica - I too like the way he blends into his surroundings. And as Andrew says, the more you look at this image, the more you see. I would also suggest trying cropping some off the bottom so we see him better. I like the eye looking at you. Definitely a cool shot!   Posted: 05/31/2023 04:46:25
