Wow, it's a vivid little critter isn't it?, metallic green on metallic grey, well seen and captured.

I found it in a garden during my vacation. They were very cooperative...

I understand the lure of the rule-of-thirds, but I would go with a vertical crop of just your friend. That is where the interest is.

In fact I don't have solution to put it in vertical mode in post production... I've just crop a little bit to obtain this picture. The next time I will try to think about it during the shooting and make the two orientation

This is very handy for cropping, resizing, batch tools, and viewing, etc. I use it all the time...and it's free.

I do like the image and would agree cropping might help. I tried a square crop, placing the frog's dominant eye on the vertical centre line: I think it works well. A really cooperative critter!

Love this one!

The color is both vivid and pleasing.

Did you do some basic post processing? If so, what kind (curves, levels, etc...?)

Hi Michael,
I didn't do so much adjustment I think. You can find below the before/after. Just the basics

Those greens are gorgeous! Did you add or modify the lighting?

Oh thanks ! I only works on the element that you can see above in the tread. The principle light was a flashlight.
