    Default Bicoloured Frog Habitat

    What you see here is a BiColoured Frog (Clinotarsus curtipes) in its habitat. This is again with a Fisheye shot from up close. These are abundantly found in the Agumbe Rainforests and are around 5-8 cm in length.

    Canon EOS 7D, Tokina 10-17mm Fisheye @11mm

    SS 1/800
    f/5
    ISO 400

    Full Frame Image. Comments and critiques welcome.

    Very nicely composed. The reddish-amber coloured eye draws attention. Any images with a higher DoF? (I don't mean it is too shallow here.)

    This is at f9 for comparison. I unfortunately took this shot with a slightly different angle than the previous one. Aesthetically, I like the one I posted better.

    I too liked the previous image better. It would be so well camouflaged in the leaves with its colours and shape of its limbs. Thanks for sharing.

    In the first shot just the head is in focus. In the second shot the frog overexposed and the upper parts of the body has lost details. So it is not an apple-to-apple comparison to make a conclusion that shallow depth of field shot looks better.

    Given the exposure details in the first shot, and the fact that you were using a fish-eye lens, it was possible to use f11 or higher to get a deep depth of field.

    Why not shoot with 5D III and use its full frame sensor?

    Hi Sabyasachi, I felt with a higher DOF, the frog didn't pop out as much. Although from a more habitat point of view it would make for better documentation.

    I had the 100mm Macro on the 5DIII and since it was raining I didn't feel like removing lenses. On the 5D to avoid the black circles at the edges of the frame due to fisheye one has to shoot at 15mm or higher. On the 7d when shooting at 10mm it works to 16mm equivalent. So field of view wise it would have been almost similar. Quality with 5DIII would of course have been much better when pixel peeping.
