I wouldn't say he's ugly Sandy! Nice job here, perhaps underrated

When you get right down to it, there were 110 people who didn't have a clue when it came to voting on this. This is way above an "Average" "5" photograph. The majority of the voters got it right, and you still came in in a very good position at #24. Good job Sandy!

I agree that this is underrated. I really like it. I think the lighting is great and the colors are pretty.

So close to a "6" Sandy, so you did ok with this great photo.
It has some amazing textures, and did deserve a higher score, but there are some great entries in this challenge.....
I also have noticed that the tolls votes, are quite a number, and that has damaged your score.....

I think that lizard isn't that ugly, more cool looking. I'll give you credit for a good picture though.

This photo quality should be in National Geographics, the DOF is brilliant,as is the color, everything is top shelf, Oh it fits the challenge as well.
