1st place
Surprise in my glass by J_E_F

seanzone: Great capture!

elektronist: Perfect close-up! Congratulations for the 1st place in the contest, John.


Logun7: Congratulations!!!

Nikoneer: So who do you suppose was more surprised, you or him? It's a fun shot and I like the position you've placed him in. The temptation to center the subject is often hard to resist and it's works quite well, like this one of yours, when we do something different. Although the bottom right quadrant at first appears empty, I can see blades of grass through the glass and the "emptiness" there allows your friend a direction to go, visually. I also love the double patterning on him (her?) with the mottling of natural color and the stripes thrown by the ribbed glass. I think I'll snitch a copy and send it to my son who has a couple lizards for pets. Thanks.
