    Hi,

    We went to the zoo last week and I'd like to share some photos. I'll start with 4, but I can post more if you like. C&C appreciated.

    Paul,

    I'm interested that they leave the cheetas out when it's cold enough to snow. Here in Cincy they take all of the "warm weather" animals inside. Would have liked to not seen the fence in #1. Exposures look good though.

    1. It seems like the cheetah should stand out more. I guess the animal is doing what it was bred to do; it blends into its surroundings for hunting.

    2. This is my number two pick of your collection. Its too bad that one branch near the bird's beak was so close and came into focus too.

    3. I like the bird, but would have preferred a darker background to make the white bird stand out a bit more.

    4. This is my favorite of the bunch. All of the wood comes together at that subject, which helps focus the viewer's attention. What is the white thing on the monkey's elbow?

    Unfortunately, I have no recommendations, but thanks for sharing the photos.

    John

    I have more of a question, as opposed to a comment. So just excuse what I type next as thinking out loud.

    I wonder what a slightly smaller aperture and faster shutter would yield? It would be interesting to see if these slight adjustments would still blur the background, but call out the snow flakes a bit more.
