[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This green lizard is around 15cm long which was on the wooden walkway around Singapore's water resevoirs. The water looked very clean and like everything in Singapore was extremely well maintained.

Dropped onto one knee to get closer to this small lizard which rushed away after a couple of shots.

Oh, man, Murray,
this is outrageously good! Your fine lizard is perfectly placed, I like the diagonal lines of the boards and the detail is remarkable. I love its pose and expression. That's hilarious. Great shot!! Many thanks and warmest regards,

Hello Murray,
A rather curious little lizard it is. Excellent detail and lighting...

What a curious lizard, Murray! :o)
Excellent focus, colors, texture and details.
Very nice your POV here, my friend. TFS!

Greetings from Brazil,

Hi Murray

Maybe a tighter crop about 1 inch above the tail? Superb dof, sharpness & colour. Tfs!

wow great capture
real cute
maybe closer crop would be nice

(just saw workshop, maybe a crop just off the top to keep tail)

Wow ...!

Terrific sharpness on this one Murray. Nice placement within the frame. Good contrast in colour between the lizard and the wood.

Maybe a crop from the top of the shot to remove that bolt in the wood ...?

Great shot. Looks like he posed for you before rushing off. Sharp detail and strange placement of limbs makes it special.

Hi Murray,

what a pose! this lizard is about to jump out of my screen! looks like a cartoon show! this is an excellent shot, great sharpness,DOF and details, can see the texture perfectly on it's green skin... very impressive capture indeed!

greetings and regards

Hello Murray,
What a green lizard, it is sharp highlighted by its eyes, the square stance is most appealing, texture on the wood ought to be appreciated. It is an awesome posting. Regards. Danilo

Hi Murray
Superb sharpness and detail; great light and colours. Wonderful lizard... This remember me Jim Morrison: «... I'm the lizard king I can do anything...» (more or less).
Greetings, mb

Hello Murray!
Very cute this green lizard!
Excellent colour, perfect detail and clarity, great focus!
Nice two version in WS.
I have an WS for you, too. I hope you don't mind.
Best regards!

Hi Murray,
Browsing your gallery, I am stunned by this one!
This is a very sharp and clear photo of this lizard!
Perfect pose, very engaging, like this little guy wanted to say a small hello passing by. With a little crop( like the one in WS), this could be a fantastic poster!
Bravo! Annie
