The Gecko on my Window

Uploaded: January 03, 2009


Artistic Pose of this fascinating creature.

I had the perfect window light on an overcast day when I noticed my silent visitor. He stood still while I snuck a piece of white cardboard behind him and bounced a flash light on the right wall.

I shot at the highest F Stop aperture I could with the available light while hand holding the camera.

This photo has been color corrected in PS CS3 and I re-entered in the contest.
