The Eastern Water Dragon, (Physignanthos Lesuerii) lives around our water and rock walls in the garden.
They are egg layers lizards, and each year many new lizards can appear in our gardens.
Their natural diet consists of INSECTS, WORMS, FRUIT & FLOWERS.
They have wonderful colors and textures, and look so fierce & prehistoric.
I feel like they have came to us from the past, a long time ago, so that is why I feel they are a perfect subject for a "DPC" movie title.

This lizard reminded me of Godzilla posters, yes ... a little city being stomped in the bg would have added that destruction element, but initially I loved the intense color and detail of his lizard skin. I voted a 7.

Nice capture! Colors, texture, DOF, and sharpness make this image POP! Well done.

Image looks a little off, like a blurry image sharpened a dozen times.

now if you were making a movie about a dangerous prehistoric creature wouldn't you want a poster that did more than just show you a picture of the creature standing there doing nothing? Nice composition, though.

He certainly looks threatening. Too bad this one is a bit out of focus.

Great subject matter! Would love to see this with some interesting lighting, such as from below. Flash creates a distracting shadow. Focus needs to be fractionally forwards (focus closer to the nose and let the DoF keep the ocus on the eye).

I really like the nice tight composition, but the lizard face seems a little less than sharp.

a bit more dof would be better to me
