What up peoples,

Just a bit of fun today, saw this fallen log yesterday at the Strid in Yorkshire. To me it looks like a huge lizard waiting to pounce on anyone who wonders down the path past the tree!

Quite a lot of PP for me, boosted the green a little to make it more lizard like, mag lassoed the eye then made it red (the eye is actually there even on full zoom it still looks like an eye) and desaturated the rest to draw your attention to my subject. Not much else apart from resize.

Hope you like it and it doesn't give you nightmares :0

Cool and fun idea Tom,
PP work was very successful.
The overall shot is well seen and taken too,
which just enhances the whole presnetation.
Well done. - Vincent

Howdy Tom!
Very original composition. Interesting scene, very interesting effect. Good capture.
Best regard!

Good PP work Tom, well spotted, no nightmare for me, we have lizards in the house over here, mind you, they are a bit smaller than this one!
Cheers, Dad

Hi Tom,
It certainly does look like a lizard. Good work on the PP, it's a lot of fun isn't it.

Good morning Tom

Well seen and captured shot here, you have an excellent imagingation. I find the image a touch too dark though, maybe a little lighter would suit. As the lizardlog is dark anyway a slightly lighter greyscale around him/her/it would have brought him/her/it out better in the image

TFS regards Helen

Hi bro,
well spotted, I like this. Where most people would have wandered past without seeing anything special you got this. I like the pp work and the wall in the background.
Cheers, John.

Clever! Nice to see some humor here.
