The way that this was shot makes it seem almost like a color pencil drawing. The reflections really help highlight the frog. Lighting under the chin and on the face make for a very dramatic picture. The depth of field is good and the frog is push forward from the background.

Looks like Jabba the Hutt :-) What an interesting subject. Looks a bit oversharpened, though.

Great expression, shame about the burnt out highlights. Background looks like it has some bad artifacting left behind by NeatImage. The sharpening's gone a bit wrong, perhaps the radius was too wide. I think a closer crop could have made this a stronger image. 6

The lighting shows off the waxy texture of the subject's skin.

what an interesting creature...the texture is almost palpable, the eye is nice, and the all-over color is nice

I see this and I get the impression that this guy is 10 feet tall.:)

I have NEVER seen a frog like that! Great picture! Some spot editing after the challenge will make this photo incredible. The background compliments this shot beautifully.

I like the smoothness in the pic. Wish the lighting were more even - not so bright on the nose and elbow,

Maybe a tighter crop on the right side...pretty fried there. However....this is so nice on the left. Great shadow/light and the color is just creepy!! Great work. Really a neat beast.

what a face! the lighting could be improved, so that the eye had brilliant light on it. also seems to be a little on the grainy/sharp side. otherwise very nice!

cool shot. great pose but way too much overshaprened has ruined what would have been an excellent image.

nice caopture, but bad quality. grainy as if oversharpened?
