About the Image(s)

Canon 5DM3 Sigma Contemporary 600mm lens at 468mm; 1/500 sec; f 6.3; ISO 100; Aperture priority; Pattern Metering.
I was at the Palm Beach Zoo, and saw this Ocelot basking in the sun. He looked so quiet, almost introspective.
I opened the image in ACR, did some D&B, a curves adjustment, a light orton effect and a high pass filter for sharpening.

I really like the photograph, especially the clarity of the face and the sun highlights.   Posted: 08/04/2019 21:08:41

A superb portrait of an animal at rest, enjoying some sunshine. I really like your processing which has darkened the background and made the ocelot stand out more. The sharpness of the coat and face are also fantastic. Very well done indeed Cyndy.   Posted: 08/06/2019 06:04:06
