like this! Beautifully composed and executed with a real "muppet show" feel about it. The expressions and originality here are wonderful as is the sharpness of the main singer. Excellent!
Enjoy a great weekend - Brian.

Good and original photo with this singing animal, Sharpness and light is well taken, tfs.

Effectivement, les iguanes ont vraiment l'air de chanter en coeur. Probablement s'adressent-ils au soleil au dessus de leur tête.. La contre plongée leur donne une belle ampleur.

First, correct the name of the town in the note. I must admit looking at those Iguanas, never can understand some people have them at home as pets.
Small Aligator's descendents... Fine taken from a side profile, inspite of the backlight there.

I like the focus on the second one with the mouth open. Probably it was time for her solo. Good and warm colors.
josepmarin (55209) 2013-01-19 11:13
you caught a funny and nice scene, with these two iguanas, and one of them seems to sing indeed.
A good work with the focus and with the field depth, which increases the three-dimensional sensation of the ensemble.
The subtlety of the light adds a very special atmosphere to the composition.

Truly a shot to being a smile to the face, these little guys look brilliant, and they loo like they are having a great time at their singalong too. Perfect point of view on them in all their scaly glory.
All the best

Une netteté sélective qui met bien en valeur l'iguane du second plan.Bonne gestion de cette lumière en contre-jour.

Is the feeling of living in the middle of prehistory. The photo is spectacular and interesting. A very good idea, and a good quality photo. Bravo.
Have a nice evening

Very nice, different and attractive composition, with this pair of iguanas, I like the POV with the same plane in a corner and looking about at the top .... something caught his attention.
Good game of shadows and light in the composition, it has a good color and sharpness.
Have a nice day.

Την πρώτη φορά που είδα μια σαύρα τραγούδι ;).
Πολύ δροσερό φωτογραφία της φύσης, παρόλο που έκανε στο ζωολογικό κήπο. Μεγάλη χρήση του βάθους πεδίου της εικόνας και υπέροχα χρώματα.

Good Morning Chris,
This is a beautifully composed shot and works well with the title.
It is not so often that we see a shot so carefully focussed on the m/g. Sometimes other photographers don't realise the intention and chastise for a blurred f/g. I like this very much and applaud your intention.
Have a lovely day,

I am a very big fan of a Zoo visit, every year to two different Zoo's in Belgium, Antwerp and Planckendael.
A nice image for the Dutch Tv "Animal Crackers" singing animals!
Your picture is very well taken.
Sharpness and clarity are perfect.
Lovely composition, good presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.

Very cute title it is good to have a laugh - the focus is certainly on the fellow that is more vocal.
Thanks for putting a smile on my face.

Great capture of these inguanas!Nice singing scene,good idea!
Have a nice week-end,my friend.

Geia sou Chris
I would rather say the farthest one is gossiping about how the human beings are ugly and put on airs, walking on two legs!!
Nice pair anyway that chose to come out with a lot of rubbish, hidden in a dark corner!

Kalimera dear Chris
hehehe this makes me smile. As a musician, I am sure you can appreciate this photo. The iguanas are adorable and I like the shallow depth of field here, with the BG blurring.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day
nikkitta (6144) 2013-02-02 8:22
Great super capture of the iguanas, really they seem to be singing at the light
Well done TFS
worldcitizen (4930) 2013-02-03 16:23
I actually like iguanas. :-) Your capture is funny, and it does look like that one iguana is giving a performance of some kind. Your focus is very good, and so is the soft blurring of the background. Even reptiles can show some personality for the camera. :-)
bona (10224) 2013-02-04 6:26
Rewally like this photo Chris, nice composition and use of DOF. I love animals of all kinds.
tatadalou (3327) 2013-03-07 12:55
Well done ! I love how you put focus on the singing iguana, the low POV and the low depth of field.
jmdias (46240) 2013-03-28 2:34
nice framing with focus in the second animal in a curious position. I liked the light and the mood of the image.
