These little guys are curious and are not too shy of people (lucky for me). Looks like he had a little scrap with another male and busted up his noise pretty good.

Sorry, my earlier comment was incomplete -- I meant Shrek because of the texture being so clean in your photo, it almost looks like computer graphics! The crispness of the foreground really works against a hazy background. Congratulations on your win, it was well-deserved! :)

Thanks to everyone and to my little anole friend for displaying for me. And thanks to my Powershot Canon A-series friends for helping me become a better photographer. Not bad for a 2MP camera.

YES!!!

Awesome - I've been trying to take a shot like this for a couple of weeks now.

Good detail in the skin and well framed. The only real problem is the light green region in the background which forms a weird merge with the head.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/23/2003 02:24:46 AM
Amazing colors and detail. You have lifted the subject off the background with an excellent DOF, congratulations - 10.
