I am trying to focus my attention on post-processing, at least to improve it some. I am a newb messing with any sort of photoshop, no need to hold back on the criticism..I can take it! :mrgreen:

Kind of a weird crop, suggestions?

#1: I'd crop it even tighter.
#2: I like the tones in the first one better but would use the white hair from the 2nd one. Easy to do with a Layer Mask.
And if he was just sitting there, watch your backgrounds.
#3: Interesting shot!

I'm a bigger fan of the originals, though they still don't really hold my attention. My main problems with the pp are with the over-saturation, toning and that black border. The colours are looking warped and too HDR-ish. Before trying too much with pp work on making your subjects more interesting, such as playing with point of view and light (You don't need expensive lighting equipment to do this).

PP on first two very effective. #3 just seems a bit too saturated to me (almost that fake HDR look)

Thanks for the comments, I do agree with #3 being over-saturated. Changed #1 a little bit.
This is my first go with messing with Light Room (4, beta).

The lizard is the obvious subject but his body is very dark and flat. I'd work on bumping just his body contrast and brightness then his head ane eye (especially the eye) then darken the non-lizard part of the frame.
I like the turtle treatment - looks almost HDR!

#3 is very cool, I like your PP here.

I love the last one, looks amazing brilliant work. The second one I would have preferred the original brightness just with the saturation sligtly turned down and the background grit reduced.
