I took this photo recently in a natural reserve in Belgium. These blue frogs
are really tiny. The above picture has been shot with the Samsung Smart
Camera NX20, provided to me by Samsung Electronics. Co., Ltd.

If you wish, you can view some variations at this link.

I'll post other photos of exotic animals in the coming weeks.

First off, I don't even know where to start. This is a really great shot! I like the frog. It seems to approach you as if saying "Hi". Well, the title is "What's up". Also, I like how the frog's face is in focus but the rest is blurred, kind of like the frog is emerging from the mist. Myself, I'm kind of interested in poison dart frogs, and I think they're really fun to take pictures, if you can. They're really fast and tiny, so it's hard to get a good shot of them, but you managed just fine. Overall, this is just really pretty! Great job!

I like how the frog is facing the camera, but the only thing that I would change is the amount of blurriness. The only thing not blurry is the frogs face. It'd be fine with some blurry spots, but not when most of it is blurry. Overall, I think it's great. It's probably better that what I could've done. :)

I'm torn, I really like it, like really, I do, and I love how it's face is such a great focal point, but I'm taught by the world and traditional photography that this should have a bigger depth of field....Gah!!!! I'm stick with this being awesome because regardless of anyone else, I really like it!
