Colors and composition/situation are great. I feel, on this page, a little more sharpness would make it perfect.

Whites are great subjects. very happy, expressive, and patient. Did yours croak during the shot? It looks like motion blur. (Good for stock you think?)

This has a LOT going for it. The processing (looks like tone mapping) is really nice for this scene. Unfortunately, the whole thing lacks that sense of critical sharpness that would elevate it another rung, and the BG to the upper left is bleeding off and robbing a little power from the image. If you'd done a vignette from the top corners to tone them down, the frog would pop a little better I think. Still, nice shot :-)
