Accidentally good shot :P

Edit: Hahahahaha, no it's not. This is pretty terrible now that I look at it now.

There is so much power in this shot. The texture of the skin is stunning and the lightning makes it look multicolored. It's so appealing to the eye that you can imagine how its skin feels like. The blurry background is simple, yet beautiful, but at the same time it does not distract the viewer from the main subject. It gives a great focus to the animal by making an empashize on the shape. The colors give a warm feeling to the shot, but at the same time it's breath-taking. The fact that you can see its eyes makes it look like a king among reptiles. This shot is perfect!

I'd say it IS a good shot, in my own, unprofessional opinion. For one, there's this level of interest created by not being able to see the lizard's eyes. He could be a conniving dragon like Smaug for all we know. Beautiful colors and composition.

This looks really awesome to me. Great shot of the lizard and the way the lights hitting him is giving off this whole dragon vibe that just looks great in photograph.
