Took this one a few months back with the G11. On my belly I was, as was he.

Neat perspective. It almost looks like a toy. Does he sell insurance?

I know they really look that way, but it still looks like a plastic toy. The way you captured the skin texture is wonderful.

very cool capture, I like the focus trailing off from the face, just like the light.

Lovely detail, and the colours, very nice capture Marko.

The colours are wonderful and the glint in his eye is stunning, I know an insurance company that would love this guy :-)

Thanks for the comments everyone, this was a difficult catch actually.
I was no more than 1.5 feet away from this little guy on my belly, bribing the little sucker with morning toast. The macro feature on the G11 is just okay, and this was the best (sharpest) of about 10 shots shot at medium jgp, not Raw. One GOOD thing about the G11 - no shutter noise. :)

I like it as well. Very nice. It does look like a toy though. :) My friend has a G10 and it's a nice little camera.

You both on your bellies - eye in eye: THAT would have been a picture of the year ;-). Well, the little guy looks very, very pretty in it's colours! Well done shot!
