POTW 16-May-2017

This fine reptile portrait gets to stand on the podium this week. The image, by zafra52, caught my attention because of its low point of view, its almost perfect placement in the image space....(the eye is where all the energy is)...its texture and the 'scale' of the subject matter.(No pun intended). He got nice and close. The only suggestion I can offer that may slightly improve the image is a slight vignette to lock the corners down.
Well done zafra52....another fine image from you.
