Taken this at Wilpatthu National Park in Sri Lanka when the Lizard was posing me to capture this one . The evening light was coming through the branches of trees which illuminated the subject in a nice way. Not an award winning capture but I personally like this for so many reasons. I could have reduced the ISO to 100 as the light is relatively bright at the time.

Hi and welcome to NPN. What a great looking lizard. The pose is engaging because of the eye contact and that gorgeous crest. Dappled sunlight is tough to shoot in, but I think you did fine here. You could have a go at evening out the exposure on it a little bit and I think that would make it even better. And you could get away with a little tighter crop to eliminate the brightness behind the critter. Hope to see more from you!

Hi Kristen thank you so much for your feedback and i will try that option

Thiraviyam, nice job with what appears to be a tough exposure.

I completely agree about a tighter crop. I find the light splotch in the upper left to be a bit of distraction, and frankly, you could probably use a more squarish crop to eliminate that and the light spots on the right. Taking a little off the top as well would then give you a frame that really emphasizes the echoing contours of the lizard and its perch.
