Earthen Lizard

September 4th, 2010

This picture was taken during a walk through Chapin Forest in Northeast Ohio. Rain had fallen shortly before the walk. The contrast between the dark, wet bark and the deep, green leaves was amazing. I spotted this lizard on a fallen tree.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon 50mm 1.8 @ f/6.3 and ISO 800.

Nice pic, but.................................................

...that's not a lizard, it's a salamander. Specifically, it's the "red eft" stage of the Eastern Newt.

Great colors and textures. Nice composition. Refreshing subject matter.

Would be nice if the camera were zoomed out (or raised) just a fraction more so as to include the entire tuft of moss in the upper right, but it's no big deal.

Great clarity. The focus is very crisp also. The textures make the image very unique.

This image lacks some cohesion. The different colors and shapes do not fit together well in my opinion. Could use some color correction to make it tie together a bit better. The focus also could've been softened just a tad to make the image a bit less harsh.

Great colors! I love how the orange of the fungus complements the orange of the salamander. There's great color contrast between those orange hues and the blue/green ones around them.

I like your depth of field for the most part. If I could ask for anything, I'd like the moss in the top right to be in focus, as it's a part of the image my eye is drawn to.

Thank you for the comments and I appreciate the suggestions!

I definitely wish I would have put some effort forward to identify this amphibian. Oh well, live you learn.

It is an eft of a Red Spotted Newt
