Aluminium Lizard by darkdex52 Aluminium Lizard by darkdex52
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.

Интересное фото)

Напомнило мне, недавний случай. Я была на музыкально фестивале весной. И там трое ребят, продавали музыкальные инструменты. Там было много всего интересного, в том числе и несколько каримб. На одной из них была нарисована ящерица и мне предложили поиграть на ней, сказав, что надо сыграть так, чтобы ящерица проснулась =) Я думала продавец шутит и немного поиграла на каримбе. И спустя какое-то время - отдала её обратно. Так вот, из неё действительно вылезла ящерка. Причем в отличии от своих сородичей, она медленно лениво передвигалась и как будто бы совершенно не смущалась присутствия нескольких людей. Наверно моя игра её убаюкала =) Потом мы еще подходили на то место, ящерка была с ребятами весь фестиваль.

interesting perspective: just the jaw and claws! It's suspense, as if it's ready to pounce into the picture any moment. If you hadn't written aluminium, I would have thought it was real :)
darkdex52 Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Then you'll be surprised to hear that it is actually real. The title refers to something else...
nerrinb Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
oh wow! I shudder at how close you got to it! 
  but why would you write it's a terrible picture? I actually like it. I'm kind of waiting for it to step into the picture.

I want to paint something using the palette you've created here. So striking.

I love lizards & this 1 is no exeption
EarthlyNugget Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
One of my favorite photos on Deviant art. I love how this picture is souly based on the "grip" of this, if you get what I mean, I can't quite put this into words. I also think this stands out because of the angle you took this at: instead of the picture revolving around the lizard, it shows the "feels".
darkdex52 Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
The background is really crappy though.
EarthlyNugget Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
