I LOVE this little guy. He was so adorable perched there.

I don't like how the image looks like I used the onboard flash. I didn't use a flash at all... and I should have diffused the lights, I guess. *sigh*

All in all, I'm liking this... so I'm hoping for a 6+ score.

The little fellow was set free beside the pond. Life is good.

*sigh* I like the text overlapping the photo, since it's in a non-essential area.

Imagine it all...large... poster-sized... on a wall. Just pretend, folks. *grin*

Is this an Iris? What an incredibly beautiful flower! I love the faces of your models - they always crack me up. Congrats on a great finish!

Good photo just wish the text was not overlapping it. Takes away from the feel of a poster and draws my eyes away from the frog to quickly to see what's going on with the text.

This is a wonderful photo. The text looks a little jumbled together, but that's my only nit-pick.

Great image but the font and layout is really going to cost you votes IMO. Good luck

The title over the photo annoys me greatly, as does the second green border around the whole thing. Its a shame as I feel the image is really good for this, the title is fitting as is the phrase. The choice of colours from the photo is also very well matched.. I really like the colours you have in teh photo, the saturation of this is great..........

You found a perfect illustration of literal tenacity! The composition is great, very balanced, yet dynamic.

Great Photo! I wish the text wasn't running into it though.

amazing picture. text is just too crowded.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow, I really like the image and the tag...my only nitpick is the word "tenacity" overlapping on the border, but that's just my personal take on it. Gave it a 9.
