My daughter's baby albino corn snake, named Rudy, was very patient with me while I wrapped him around this grid by turning the grid this way and that. The diffuse light is due to the tent we have set up in the backyard. I prefered another shot but since it is her snake , she got to choose. Shot in RAW, exp pushed down a stop, converted to TIFF, sat raised 12 then yellow sat raised the same. Contrast bumped 10, usm @ 160,.5,0. A touch of burn & dodge on the head of the snake. Saved for web and USM @ 160, 0.5, 0.

Cool shot. I like the combination of the snake's colours with the red grid.

My roommate just got a snake that looks almost identical to this. I actually put a link to this pic in a thread where I am asking for suggestions on a name for him. In this shot you stated he was a baby...is he still pretty friendly now that he is older?

there is something naturally disturbing about this picture. it might be the lack of harmony amongst the oranges and pinks or might frankly be that snake. great title, and you stuck to challenge.

You've captured a uniquly interesting shot here. Great use of color and line, different textures form a nice contrast. Only detraction is that focus seems a bit soft in spots

I am not a big fan of snakes, but I have to say this is one beautiful snake.. I like the red cage with the red snake against the black background

The girder is a little oversaturated, but this is an interesting shot. If you cropped it a tad more, the girder would be more like a frame. Since the background is entirely black and doesn't disturb, I think you could add a little more depth to make the snake completely in focus.

I love this, a closer crop might be a suggestion, the snake alone is a super subject.
Good luck, 8
