A young gator lurking in a lake. Some people were feeding him crackers (they were off to the left of the scene), which I gathered wasn't unusual, since he proceeded to lurk in front of each group of people along the shoreline in hopes of more food. Someday that will end badly for someone ... at the very least the poor alligator.

PP - converted from RAW, straightened, cropped, levels, color correction, increased saturation, CEP (tonal contrast, Midnight filter brightened), cloned/Viveza to remove a bright branch and its reflection, dodged/burnt gator a bit, resized, Nik Sharpen.

How many voters have breezed through with a 5, not looking and enjoying?

Lovely image of that wood and croc. I think I would have cropped it a bit more (get lost of the left tree and part of the river), giving more focus on the croc. But I still like it!
