I was wondering the same thing about your background. What type of Orange Gell did you use for the background? is it made specifically for photo backgrounds or just something that you tried? I've enjoyed your photo's a bunch and this one is great. I also like your photo of the guitar with the butterflies. Are you taking these photo's indoors? Are the butterfly's real? I was also wondering what type of Camera your using for your shots? Congratulations on your win.

the gel is a transparent plastic that goes infront of your studio light to change the color of the back ground

This is what you get for winning; everybody wants to know how you did it. Did you use a macro lens? This shot, even as a JPEG, speaks well for the quality of the glass you use.

sometimes you just get lucky. the frog jumped to the bud but started to fall off. they stick to every thing, so he actuall hung on that way for abot 30 sec. I was able to get a few shot. thank for all your comments.
