Hi.

This lizard was running just in front of us, when we were walking in a nature park last sunday.
This is my first photoshop-edit. It didn't work out perfectly because some of the grass was blurred, so was hard to remove without taking color away from the lizard.

Image
Shot at: 400 ISO (Mistake, should have chosen 100 ISO)
70 mm @ f 8

I'd appreciate any comments or advice from you guys for the future...

Greetings,
Sander

Great idea! I've never seen this technique used to "un-camouflage" anything before. Nice shot.

The selective coloring works great here! I bet that the grass was either brown/green looking so you couldn't really see the lizard, this way its very clear to us where he is, good choice!

Thanks!

Yes Alex, the grass was very green, so it didn't realy stand out.
Glad you guys like it.

greetings,
Sander
