Happy Frog by FriendFrog is a very cute image, with a great focus and a shallow depth of field that make it a very interesting shot.

I really love the dof, it lets him blend in while his eyes and the details on his face allow him to stand out. The green is a beautiful color, and by it being mainly on the cool side, it allows his eyes to pop out even more and show that he looks happy. You really did focus on his cute expression.

The composition is also well done though I do wonder if a horizontal composition rather than a square would have been better, I just don't know what it looks like before the photo was cropped. Cute frog and great find!

Thank you for your thoughtful critique! I'll have to take another look at the original to think about the composition. I have been liking square crops lately. :)

You're welcome. Ya, I've been liking square crops too. They're fun since I never did them before this site

Adorable. It's amazing how skilled you are at finding just the right pose to convey such "emotion" from your little subjects. 

On a side note, I fear for the survival of our amphibious friends, so many species of frogs are rampantly going extinct. As they breath through permeable skin, all amphibians are incredibly susceptible to pollution.

Thank you so much! :glomp:

I know, the possibility of losing them really scares me. They're so important to their ecosystems and to our planet, but because they're not large and cute and fluffy, no one cares about them. (Don't even get me started on panda conservation. That darn charismatic megafauna.) And while we can tell how their surrounding environment is doing based on how their populations are doing, if something goes wrong, they're the first to go. They're basically the canaries in the coalmine, and it's crazy to me that we're like "Uh... the canaries are pretty much dead. That's okay, right? Yeah, just keep mining, boys!"

(I just have a lot of feelings about frogs.)

The picture itself is very nice and clean shot...the green color is exactly cool with shades, light and dark contrast.

Now what I may say about the frog being happy... hehehe... if you will isolate the eyes, it looks happy, kind of happy. But only if the frog can talk, he would probably say to the photographer, "You ain't know nothing being a frog!" hahahaha.. :D

Thank you so much!
It's probably a good thing frogs can't talk, for some reason I feel like the back-sass would be unbearable. :hexentanz:
