I live in the country so I took a walk and saw the toad on the road.... I see pheasants, turkey and deer all the time.. The day after the challenge ended I saw a peacock on the road
(someones pet I guess). I did not have my camera on hand at that time :-(

Nice Sharp Colour !
06/14/2002 11:41:00 AM
Awesome! Nothing wrong with this photo! What lens did you use?
06/14/2002 12:15:00 AM
Congratulations! I think this is my favorite shot this week :) This is just amazing... I love just about everyting about this photo... The blur in the foreground doesn't bother me at all.. i know how difficult this is to do and if you increased the camera angle, you would lose this view of the frog... good work!
06/13/2002 10:53:00 PM
I need a toad like this..........
06/13/2002 07:18:00 PM
Poor gal. I hope you put her back in the grass!
06/13/2002 04:49:00 PM
Good use of focus and blur. I love this picture, and the humor behind it. I thought about something like this (thinking of the video game "Frogger"), but you've done it better than I could ever have. I also like the colors.
06/13/2002 09:15:00 AM
I just changed my vote on this one, and up too. It is a great shot with good color, excellent detail,and fits the category. Shallow DOF works well here also. Now I know why I couldn't do one like this, you had my toad.
06/13/2002 06:56:00 AM
Excellent. I love pictures of critters and this sure is a great critter. My only complaint, and I'm not even marking you down for it, is that the foreground is almost distractingly out of focus. But that's ok cause I really like the picutre. :)
06/13/2002 01:22:00 AM
What a cooperative toad...
06/13/2002 01:03:00 AM
Awesome focus and great colors. You really captured the texture of the road and the toad - 10
06/13/2002 12:28:00 AM
Great image. Nice DOF. I like it.
06/12/2002 09:25:00 PM
Nice toad--as toads go. Great controll of DOF!!!
06/12/2002 08:27:00 PM
nicely done!
06/12/2002 06:20:00 PM
This is a great shot! Excellent DOF.
06/12/2002 01:26:00 PM
Great job with the dof.
06/12/2002 11:09:00 AM
Good job on this shot. Great focus on the subject, and it conveys to me a good playful spirit.
06/12/2002 09:47:00 AM
Excellent. The narrow depth of field isolates the subject from its surroundings.
06/12/2002 09:20:00 AM
Cool subject...
06/11/2002 10:00:00 PM
This one is my favorite! I think it's perfect! Great idea!
06/11/2002 09:16:00 PM
Very nice, great color on the toad!
06/11/2002 01:00:00 PM
Good toad. Was it really that orange? (or is just my monitor...) Very good focus/framing, nice colors, sorry, but I have no "constructive" advice.

Cute! Awesome detail and you really get right down there with the subject!
06/10/2002 08:54:00 PM
Great picture, best so far, I gave you a 10! :)
06/10/2002 07:44:00 PM
This photo rocks... The toad rocks. You rock.
06/10/2002 06:45:00 PM
Like the way the color of the frog is echoed in the pavement. Don't know if it would be possible to get closer to the frog, but I think I would have tried. (Might not look any better than it now does, so I don't know.) The only thing I really find somewhat distracting, and it seems very small, is the pole up and to the left of the frog's right eye. It just keeps catching my attention. Like I said, though, very minor.
06/10/2002 05:21:00 PM
Love it. Bit over exposed to me, but nice job. Well done, creative.
06/10/2002 03:08:00 PM
Oh, yes, beautiful. Apart from the fact that I think toads/frogs/lizards and the like are kinda cute, this is great angle, lighting, DOF, and excellent take on the challenge, my top 3 this week.
06/10/2002 12:18:00 PM
i love the detail you captured on the toad ... how mch of a zoom lens did you have to use?
06/10/2002 12:16:00 PM
precisely what I would have submitted had I been able to find a toad. lol. nice picture. you did relocate him to a safer location after his photo-shoot, didn't you?!
06/10/2002 04:56:00 AM
Such a cute little bugger.
06/10/2002 01:02:00 AM
Ten out of ten for this little bloke. Well captured.
