I like the depth of this heart wrenching shot.
Comments and suggestions welcome.
I like the shot a lot but the eyes seem to not be natural. Other than that, it's a fine shot.
Normally not a good idea to "Flash", an orangutan, they are very strong, and some parks/zoos don't permit flash photography.
Over all, its great, I like it!
Definatley captures the emotion. I don't think it's an orangutan though. Looks more like a mandrill.
Very nice picture, it has a heartbreaking emotion
Could be a baboon for all I now
I do think it's an excellent shot/subject, I'd put it in a photo contest if it were mine. :thumbup:
Wow...very impacting and a little sad.
Thanks for the comments. It is a Mandrill. They are suppose to be one of the meanest animals in the jungle.
Very nice Joe - definitely an emotional image. It looks like you used a ring flash on this (based on the eyes). To me the flash reflection in the eyes are a slight distraction to the image.
I love this shot.. I would try to fix the eyes.. But the fence in as the main focus really puts a statement to the photo.. Its a Mandrill... Rafiki from the Lion King " Asante Sana.... Squashed Banana " lol
Thanks for the comments and the suggestions... I will tone down the catchlight in the eyes.
Thanks a lot, Joe
