A couple of alligator shots from Anhinga Trail in the Everglades. A took a long weekend trip to Florida to shoot a few birds, but also snapped a few shots of reptiles.

Love the first image. Personally, I would crop some off the top and, maybe, a bit on the right hand side to give the image more balance. However, if you like it, that's all that counts.

Thanks for the feedback. Always nice to have opinions to consider.

I'd agree with this! A slight crop/re-frame would turn that first photo into something great. I love the lighting on the gators face, and the variations in the lighting overall in the photo. Great work on both photos.

Great shots. If you're thinking of re-cropping, maybe try making the second one narrower. A narrow, tall shot might make the gator seem like he's swimming out of the photo and into your living room.


All I want is just a little more than I'll ever have.
