    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.

    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:

    Thanks for the comments. It is a Mandrill. They are suppose to be one of the meanest animals in the jungle.

    Cheers, Joe

    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
