I also tried to frame the iguana with the water behind his body rather than the darker rocks, as the rocks would provide less contrast to the color of the iguana.
The challenge of this photo was the depth of field because I was only a few feet from the iguana, and the ocean was well outside the camera's depth of field. Also, Julie was using our good camera, and I had our older camera which, although it has a 15 times zoom, has no setting higher than f 8, so its depth of field is very limited.
But I can also pretend that I wanted to blur the background so that it does not distract from the subject.
This week we are showing photos of the Atacama desert in the Andes Mountains of northern Chile. It is a unique landscape.
