    First picture post, really excited since these are the best alligator pictures I've gotten to date. Went through Lightroom really quick and did some minor adjustments, I know crappy vignetting but it kind of helps on some of them.

    They're all taken in a park of wild alligators. The huge one was like 10ft and people were walking by casually instead of going around and it was hissing. I was pretty sure these people letting their toddlers roam freely were going to have an incident.

    The rest are at http://vgeek.net/v/Nature/Barataria+Preserve/

    the first two are nice... the third... it's just too damned busy to really notice the gator at the center... even when you find the subject, it's hard to see.

    i bet that place is creepy at night. i think you resized your pics too small, the last one would be nice if it was large.

    It is, I went last year for a full moon tour... when you pointed your flashlight into the water, there were all types of eyes lit up in the water and the banks. I just post that small size on forums, I have 1280 long side pictures on my site and it does look better.

    I've been to an alligator park before. Very nice though sorta creepy places. I was probably 12 though so I only got some 35mm pics of them and doubt I could find them now.

    Nice pics!
