Here comes the dragon!

I arrived at Kalinga Park early on Sunday, so went for a wander and came across this fearsome beast.

    That fearsome beast is probably only 10cm tall. :-)
  • David de Groot said:
    Indeed they are ;-)
    'tweren't bad
    Well as he is here, about that, but sitting up properly he was probably 30cm tall. :P

    Excellent composition David!! Love the crisp detail & a cool DOF.

    A great DoF!
    Exactly sharp where it must be sharp.
    A beautiful reptile, a kind of leguan?

    Thanks Adam :)
    Not that I know of, although they may share a common ancestor.

    beautiful lighting & DOF David - love it :-)
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Kath :) I have one from the other side, of him sitting up, and when I came around the front he flattened out a bit like this. A case of dappled light through the trees working in my favour.

    Amazing David. Depth of field is perfect and the background has a nice slight bokeh look.

    Oh very cool, love the DOF and the framing.
