Pastel Sky       ©2015 mbbin2

1/160s, f4.5, ISO 125, 432mm, Aperture Priority, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: converted from raw in cc2015. cropped       Extra Info: While I was stalking the hummingbirds in my yard, a little green anole started crawling along the fence. The crape myrtle along the fence were backlit giving the pastel background. WOW! Pastel photo here you are!!

    Congrats, this is very beautiful! Sorry, I wasn't able to vote in the Main as our internet connection was dodgy the past few days.

    Good shooting and a very nice result. Love the contrast in textures as well as colour.

    Nice detail in the anole and fence.

    IMO the background should have been the point of focus for this theme.

    Nice pastel background. In my favorites.

    nice capture! I would have "removed" the distracting leaves: clone out, larger crop, or compose without if this was possible.

    The background is the feature here, isn't it? Still, without the little fellow in the foreground, it just would not have much interest. Nicely done and a favorite for me.

    Background color fits the challenge well, but not so well with the subject matter. Composition is rather too central.

    Lovely pastel toning of the background; and nice capture of the lizard for a more interesting image.

    Nice pastel background and composition. IMO would had cropped some from right side to eliminate leaves and blurred part of fence. ~ Amberbug

    the dark wall is overpowering the image a tighter crop would make more of the anole

    The background does have nice pastel tones, but the background is not the subject. I would consider the subject, the anole, to be very underexposed.

    Very nice shot! Love the blurred background against the clarity of the lizard.
