About the Image(s)

These are gharials (fish-eating crocodiles from Asia) in Jungle World at the Bronx Zoo. I thought it hilarious with the three together having a meeting. Some cropping had to be done. The lighting was tricky there and eventually, I darkened it overall and then darkened the midtones a bit more.

Gharials are new to me. First time I ever saw one, alligatorish!
They look bored. I would like to seen a little more light, pop! Though the current exposure emphasizes a somber mood.   Posted: 06/05/2021 14:42:51

I've never seen these gharials before. Just that they are so unusual makes the image have great impact. The image is sharp, nice color and composition is good.   Posted: 06/06/2021 17:56:10

Scary things. Shouldn't they have masks on? Here's a version I was playing with wanting to see more detail   Posted: 06/13/2021 13:16:39

Growing up on Long Island, I haven't been to the Bronx Zoo in more than 50 years but I'm assuming it is still one of the best. This image is well done, but I do prefer Sol's rendition. It just makes the gharials stand out more.   Posted: 06/17/2021 05:22:39

I didn't plan for the shot to be quite as dark. Think my monitor is definitely going.   Posted: 06/17/2021 08:14:45

If you need to replace your monitor check Amazon. Bought an ACER 27" it was the least expensive of everyone and I absolutely love it.   Posted: 06/17/2021 08:26:55

They do look like they are having a meeting or plotting something. A little more pop would make this really good. Zoo lighting is always tricky. It was nice of them to stay still for you though. :)   Posted: 06/17/2021 17:57:49
