Scary biscuits. A superb capture. Bumping up.

Might have straightened out the line formed by the water surface, or shot from a slightly higher angle to take it out of the frame. Nice detail on the eye.

Wow... This is a really clear shot, and very mezmorizing. o.o I love it. The top looks a tad washed out, but it sort of helps with the camouflage anyway. Lovely.

The perspective and reflection really through me off here. Camouflage indeed! I didn't know it was a croc until I saw the title. Was thinking frog first, until I noticed it was a reflection. Boy, that would have been a big boo boo! 8

Better if the crop were squared to the waterline. Also a higher shutter speed could save some highlights from burning out.

the caiman does fit the challenge, unfortunately the blown highlights are very distracting

colors seem very off to me, but did love the angle of the pic

A good idea for camoflauge but the purple area to the right is quite distracting (and confusing as I can't really make out why it's purple.)

Always thought of 'gators' in terms of hiding or lurking, but green on green works.

Perfect for the challenge. The blown out highlights really detract from this photo. Since the alligator is the subject of the picture it would be nice to have a good sharp focus on that. The whole picture is slightly out of focus.

Excellent shot. I really like the reflection and the way he blends in with the rock. Little overexp on the rock.

Wow that's camo AND an optical illusion. Love the purple in the shot. I'd straighten out the image, or maybe that was your intent.
