    I spent a few hours at the local zoo (Henry-Doorly Zoo, Omaha, NE) earlier this week.

    C&C is welcomed, as usual. I haven't posted in a few months--after the utter failure at shooting movie stills back in May. I've been reading, shooting when I can, and getting together with a friend of mine who is a professional photographer in between classes, finals, working at the studio, and all the other fun things of life.

    So, here it goes. I do see where I can still improve, but I want to see what your thoughts are. I'll just post a few for now. I have quite a few keepers from that day.

    Basic PP done on these (color correction and sharpening; no cropping). Shot with Canon Rebel XS with the kit lens.

    5. (Shot through glass; enclosure had very odd lighting, which I fixed during PP)

    6. Shot up, through a tunnel. I would've laid down to get a better perspective, but there was a big puddle where I stood to get this shot:

    1) I like the color contrast
    2) it looks out of focus to me.. I am not sure though..
    3) Love the colors again
    4) Lost some details in darkness..
    5) Again lost some details
    6) Doesnot do much for me...

    :D Hey!

    I took these in the Lied Jungle--which is one of two of my favorite attractions! My first and favorite is the Scott Aquarium (I need to finish the PP before I post those).
