photoblog image Iguana

Iguana

Don't ask me why there was an Iguana in the Barcelona Aquarium, but here he is in all his glory. Quite a colourful fella isn't he? Apparently, Iguanas make good pets. They are affectionate and can even be walked on a leash (if trained well) - I got that off Wikipedia, no kidding.

Thanks everyone for the great responses. Sorry I've not been able to blog recently. It's been hectic at work, but I do appreciate each and everyone of your comments. :)

EXCELLENT capture.. loving the details. I have a friend with a pet Iguana smile he adores it to death, although I don't see the purpose of it lazing around all day and doing absolutely nothing! lol

A fabulous picture, wonderful detail on the scaly body.

I don't think I'd ever take one of these for a walk!
A little to bright though I love it smile

Looks abit blown out at some areas but otherwise a very nice capture. I love the contrast between the grey and the orange/yellow bits. It's almost like a gradient was applied on the body. :p
Well done, this photo works on numerous levels

colour composition
Textures
Eye-highlight
lighting
even the "shallow" depth of field

well done!
One friend of mine has one Iguana. Very cool.
impressionnant
clear and crisp...although the impression of one of its fingers being chopped off is a bit annoying...
Brrr... Nice pet but not for me... My bathroom is really too small. But your shot is fantastic !

Barcelona Aquarium??? Hmmm. We certainly don't have one in our Georgia Aquarium, so I can understand the question mark, Duane.

But the dtail is fabulous enough to include it in any aquarium as a token of sorts. smile
Wonderful lighting you got here; clever DOF, magnificent details.

The Maven: Yo Suby... I'm around, don't worry wink This weekend I've implemented XML-RPC pings on the blogs. So whenever you update your photos, VFXY and Weblogs will be informed of the update. Hopefully, they'll then come to check out the new updates more quickly than before.

Hi Maven, me parece perfecto el resultado que está teniendo esta template. Me gusta como se mueve esta casilla del comentario... pero yo pediría tres cosas... 1) que el título de la imágen, siempre aparezca fijo en la parte inferior izquierda de la foto. 2) que si es posible, justo encima de la frase "Leave a comment" apareciese a la vez, con el mismo movimiento que el comentario, el thumbnail de la fotografía. y 3) que cuando has completado de escribir en esta casilla y estás haciéndolo en la parte de abajo de la página, el funcionamiento es incorrecto porque no se puede ver lo que se esta escribiendo. Espero, Maven, que la traducción que ofrezca Babel Fish sea acertada. Un saludo y te felicito por tu trabajo smile

Hi Maven, seems to me perfect the result that is having this template. I like as this square of the commentary moves... but I would request three things... 1) that the title of the image, always appears fixed in the left inferior part of the photo. 2) that if it is possible, just upon the phrase "Leave to comment" it appeared simultaneously, with the same movement that the commentary, the thumbnail of the photography. and 3) that when you have completed to write in this square and are doing it in the part of under the page, the operation is incorrect because this cannot be seen what being written. I wait for, Maven, that the translation that offers Babel Fish is guessed right. A greeting and I congratulate you by your work smile

Pretty animal, isn't he? And your picture shows him off well. Many aquariums exhibit iguanas 'cos they are water lizards.
