About the Image(s)

I love taking zoo photos, especially of the primates. I can wait forever until I get eye contact through the glass or an interesting pose. It's sometimes hard to get the eyes since they are deep-set, but after a little dodging, I felt I was successful here, especially through glass inside a darker building. Settings: f/4.5, 1/100 sec.,, ISO 1250 and 150mm focal length.

Cindy, all I can say is STUNNING! The "eyes" have it! Excellent isolation of the subject from the background; beautiful tonality and tack sharp. Exceptionally well done portrait.   Posted: 04/04/2021 11:19:54

Cindy, a compelling portrait. The eye contact was definitely worth waiting for, and the soft light gives the coat a beautiful glow. Yes, I would say this is a successful photographic capture - well done!   Posted: 04/13/2021 15:55:14
