First PPG acceptance w00t!
Posted By: arpaagent, 07-05-2009, 08:00 PM

Glad to finally get one in! (a week or two ago actually just haven't announced here yet) I think 1 in 11 is my ratio of accepts to submits now. I'll submit a few more and hopefully get a few more in soon. But this is my first so it gets special recognition!

Ooopses happens. What a great pic. Did you try a crop that moved the lizards head towards the lower right corner?
he wasn't very cooperative. that may have been the last shot he gave me before he darted away. I don't think I could really crop it that much. I only have 6 MP to work with.

Congrats, Jim. Great shot

More thanks to everyone. My wife was also proud that I finally got my first one in, she knows that I had tried a few before this one with some disappointment. I've determined that almost any kind of macro-ish shot requires an very nice, smooth tranquil background.
