Greetings from the Critique Club...

First impressions.. A really cool pic, and rather you than me! :-).

The greens are wonderful, and the lines of the branches reflected, along with the OOF forground leaves lead into the subject so well.

Technically you've got the focus right where it's needed on the face, and exposure looks right on the money.

This realy is a well executed image, and the only thing I think might be improved is the crop, to remove the distracting detailed leaves at the top of the frame.

They compete a little with the croc for attention, and because they have a full dynamic range (light to dark tones) they are equally attractive to the eye, pulling me away from the main subject.

Having said that, I'm playing around with some bits of paper over the screen and I really can't see how I would crop for better effect, but I still find the leaves distracting all the same.

Wonderful image, thankyou for sharing it with us...

Doesn't fit into challenge topic as no fear is shown

this deserves first place but not 2nd or 3rd. It is good but if not acknowledged universally then it can't suffer a stand on the podium.

great photo - figured it would look a bit better to have a chunk of the bottom of the photo cropped off so that the aligator doesn't get as lost in the photo.

Good one. Very nice capture and it certainly envokes a little fear.

7 - Good capture, nice 'fore' and background bokeh, good color and reflection as well. Criticism; think this has more potential (depending of course what you had to work with). Firstly the 3 extra pixels would have helped (this is 637), also, a nudge rotation up on the left, (or even going the other way and more diagonal) and a variation in the cropping, and as mentioned the size, would have made this even better in my opinion.

Beautiful photo, but doesn't show fear.

I think the title ruins the presentation. Nice shot though! :)
