Congrats on the award...I loved your shot. I am shocked when I pull it up that anyone in their right mind would have given you a 1 or 2 or 3....I have told my husband sometimes I think bitter people go by and just do low votes to help their own and out of spite. Anyway great job!

05/02/2006 03:52:20 AM
Fabulous - magnificent - superb! I wish I could give you a 10+ for this image, but sorry you'll have to settle for a 10!

It has everything - colours, composition, detail, humour - they're all there. If this doesn't get the Blue Ribbon I'll be mighty surprised and you will have been robbed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2006 11:32:23 PM
Great photo, although the hue seems to be "off" a little if that is a red bell pepper (which it looks to me). Looks more like an apple. However, I gave it no discount for that as I love the idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2006 09:07:03 PM
Well now this is so cute and funny and he looks like he is waving a polite little Hello! I wonder if the photographer has as skinny legs as this little guy does??? HHMMM??? LOL

Now that's cute! On my screen, green seems a little flat but still 8.

04/29/2006 02:14:33 PM
Im assuming that i am looking at a Chameleon on a pepper which would make the chameleon about 1 to 2 inches long. I wasnt aware they were that small.
Nice picture though.

04/28/2006 06:28:24 AM
Great image, lots of nice detail and nice competition. My only issue would be that it could do with just a touch more saturation to make the colours leap out a bit more, but that would be nit picking.

Good luck with this its fabulous!

Awesome photo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2006 09:25:26 PM
6 - Up from 5. Like this, but the 'green' of the chameleon is clashing a little with the green of the stem, and draws attention to the 'quality' of the skin of the stem as well, if that makes sense. Not sure what to suggest, perhaps 'putting it' on the 'red', who knows. Perhaps even the chameleon on its own, as has good color in it. Just needs a little 'extra', somewhere, especially for this Challenge, in my opinion. edit:typo
