During our airboat adventure in Florida last week, our captain, "Captain Darrell" (not sure if that's the correct spelling of his name), found an alligator for us to gawk at and take pictures of. He would just throw a marshmallow into the water and the gator came right over. The gator got right next to the boat and I was able to get this shot. That reflection in its eye is me! Kinda scary!
What I did for this particular shot was process a single raw in photomatix and then did some minor tweaks in photoshop. The main thing I did was add a vignette with Nik Color Efex to just really highlight it's eye. I really wanted that to pop. I hope I accomplished that with this one.
