    ^first try^
    As before I tried to make it not look like they were taken at a zoo (except the one of the orangutan), so let me know if I accomplished this. ;)
    Continuation to the "trapped" thread in general gallery.
    CC please. :)

    This is a great set, and I blame you for me wanting to go to the zoo now. (I'll have to wait for a couple of months, though, as winter is still in full force here in the Canadian prarie).

    These are great. I'm surprised more people haven't commented on them. I especially like 1, 6, and 7.

    Really great images! How did you get the studio-like background in 6, 7 and 9? You've made me want to go to the zoo now :D

    Combination of already dark background and photoshop. I made the shadows pitch black in another layer with curves, then to keep the animal not dark, I erased where it was on that layer, so it kept the better lighting.
    Except the one of the monkey, where i made the highlights bright so it was all white. You get the idea. ;)
    Then to make sure the background was all black, I used burn on shadows setting thing at 100%

    Nice set. I like the way you Photoshop some of the shots. I have to say #6 is the one that I like the best.
