my kids love this one. i like it, too, but wish you'd burned in the hotspots from the flash. they really detract from an otherwise fun image. love the contrast and the overall lighting. good luck in this and the coming challenges!

I love the leaf texture and the composition of this picture...the only improvement for me would be to see a little more detail or light on the salamander's head/face...

Would have been a stronger shot without the reflections on her body...

I would have liked a natural background of some kind.

Nice underlight, but needs a little on top

Focus on Sally seems a little off. Good luck.

I like the way you have lit this from underneath, maybe little to much plain background.7

An interesting shot but I find the subject lacking and the colors pretty bland. Outstanding clarity and good DOF <7>

Good close up shot

Interesting subject, and the leaf is terrific also, but the lighting seems a little harsh. Additionally, the sterility of the background doesn't really work with 'sally.' 5.
