My Crocodile Gecko.


I ripped a hole in a sheet of paper, put another piece of paper behind it, I set up a clamp light and covered it with a piece of wax paper lighting it from over head. Camera was on a stack of CD\'s. Gecko was very cooperative.

Hope it does well :)

****************************

YAY BEST PERSONAL SCORE!!!!
YAY! IT DID AWESOME!!!!

thanks to Joey who gave me a lighting tutorial in 10 minutes and helped with the concept and Justin (elsapo) who helped with the post processing.

Converted to black and white. Resized.

Brightness and Contrast levels adjusted.
Some dodging and burning on the subject.

a slight irregularity on the paper to the left side cloned out.

thanks.

What a fine, fine image. Nicely setup and captured. Clever concept, nice use of the rule of thirds. Good in every way except the purity of the white background.
