Caught this frog walking to my pond and thought it would be good for the green challenge. It was a little crazy trying to get the eyelashes to stick on the frogs head. Put her in a little clay pot for the shot which she jumped out of and knocked her eyelashes off a few times. Actually this was pretty funny to do and the frog was taken back to the pond with a few stories for her buddies.


Wow! Thanks everyone for the funny and kind comments, its so very much appreciated. I had a lot of laughs doing this shot!

Very cool!

Love those eyes!
The blank background and offset subject are spot on. Only one thing spoils it and that is the halo, probably from USM around the eyelashes. I suspect the eyelashes donít need to be so sharp Ė as it is they are fighting with the eyes for my attention and I know which one I would like to see win. If it wasnít for that it would have been perfect to me.

I'm looking at a ribbon contender here - well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/12/2006 10:11:58 PM
Classic shot! Great comp and DOF. Clarity and colors are right on. Subject is interesting and the title made me laugh. Nose seems a bit flat But I've no idea how one could address this. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/12/2006 05:38:11 PM
Very good. And the job in focusing and sharpness is awesome! My congratulations.

Nice close-up, but i'll pass on the kiss part, thanks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/12/2006 04:35:09 AM
One of the few frog pictures that had character and is technically good. Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/12/2006 01:02:40 AM
Love it! My only two complaints would be that it looks a tad oversharpened, and that I would like a deeper DOF to get the nose in focus. But other than that, this is rad!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

06/10/2006 03:53:43 AM
I would like a slightly darker hue of green
06/09/2006 05:51:59 PM
I like this but it seems like it's out of focus around the mouth.
06/09/2006 09:08:48 AM
Very lush!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/09/2006 08:02:59 AM
my daughter loves this! excellent shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/09/2006 12:18:31 AM
I think maybe the false eyelashes weren't such a good idea. Also, it might have worked better as a square centred photo, with a bit more of the frog's body. (I was hoping to find frogs to photo, but they were only around the week before the challenge started...)
06/08/2006 10:25:51 PM
Man... Elvis turn into a frog... Somebody kiss him again :P I like it though :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2006 09:00:37 PM
LOL! This made me laugh. Love those eyelashes!!!

This would win if I were king... or even a prince. Wonderfully whimsical and technically splendid too.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/07/2006 04:19:05 PM
This is so cool.

It reminds me of the cover of a greeting card. Maybe a "Please Forgive Me" card complete with batting eyelashes.

Cute!

my favourite of this challenge, hands down, although the tiny hair between her eyes keeps making me brush my monitor. the nose to me is maybe a touch too blurry but 10!
