Terrific study in color and texture. Not a 'nature' shot per se, but a fine image nonetheless.
wow! I think you've found your entry for wildlife photographer of the year!!
Very nice photo, great, Jitka
I thought it a log at 1st glance, indeed very well camouflaged. The field of green algae provides a very good overall background.
wilson: although all the comments seem well meaning, what do they say? great, wonderful, the best, blah blah. A photographer has to always ask himself how to make things better. Can this photo be better? Yes. Before I tell you want I think, ask yourself if you could see this photo in the National Geographic. I could imagine an editor looking at and saying 'where are the rest?'. Maybe something out of series would be choosen, but I don't think it would be this one. For one thing, the photo is flat - the lighting is real flat...no highlights, nothing. This photo is about texture and color...neither of which is shown its the best advantage. Where's the croc's teeth? Could you have sqirted a bit of water on his snout to reveal a tooth or two? Would that alone have made it better. YES. Did you try? Probably not because you were afraid he would move. So, take a few photos - and see. If he disappears, you still have a photo. If he doesn't, you have a better photo. You didn't do this. This is a critique. Ken
Wow It has all been said. Very nice. Colours are really vibrant.

Wilson, Great shot. I'm always leery about water that I can't see into...you never know what might pop out of it! Nicely done. BTW, where were you in relation to this croc? A boat, a dock, ? Leslie
