I have a couple of hours to fill in between school and evening class, so sometimes I park my car in the shade by a quiet road and have a nap. This time I noticed this frog sitting on a big leaf. Reflected in his eye is my car (on the left, with door open) and me on the right, and a bit of sky and rice field in the middle.

Changed white balance and other stuff in the RAW file, sharpened, cropped and resized in PSE5, added an inside border (first time for me).

He looks so composed and rather regal. Indeed, as jmritz points out, this is very comfortable. Lovely shot, great score, great placement in the challenge!

What a cute little bugger! Great detail! I am torn between liking it how it is or wanting a deeper DOF to get more focus on more of his body.

more DOF would have made the picture better

Ooohh, this will score well. Great DOF, and contrast. My only critique would be that the border is distracting but that is more of an opinion than critique. Maybe it being slighty noisy? Meh, that doesn't bother me.

Wow - insane detil! Sweet! I'm not big on the border, but that's all.
