I wonder if #1 is a case of less is more, that is the frog might be more effective if it was smaller or even almost unapparent. Nice textures here in any case.
Thank you very much for the comments everyone ! I really appreciate it ! You bring up a good point, I typically would have the subject smaller, but in this
case the idea was to show the texture of the frog using B/W so it got more real estate to show more of its texture.
