I am not sure why you did not get one ribbon. To my mind, some higher rated picture are far inferior. Excellent Job, but underestimated.

I'm sorry i thought I had commented on this picture during the challenge. Anyways it is awesome! Gave you a 10, it's going to be one of my favorites here in a second...I thought it deserved a ribbon :(

This image makes me want to extend my finger and caress this little guy. Congratulations on your top ten finish.

Very well done. The white in the lower corner is a little distracting with the rest of it being darker but very nice one nonetheless.

Great choice of subject. Day Geckos are wonderful and deserve your attention - which you have done excellently other than a touch too much space to the right and top. More body would make this perfect.

Clear, crisp and delightful.

That is a winner. Well, let's say that it is just perfect, sharp, colourful, great DOF. I cannot see why this picture will not get the ribbon. It will be a shame. 10

7 - Excellent color and texture/sharpness. Criticism; difficult, maybe a tighter crop on the left, or just another variation on composition/balance, not sure. Up to 7 from 6.
