    Don't think these have been shown yet (Barring one) so here are some shots of a meerkat stading watch for the rest of the pack. Chances are I was using my polariser as well on an overcast day (I was playing) though I really can't remember if I was or wasn't at this point - still it was a darker day for shooting, hence ISO 400
    All taken in Marwell Zoo with a canon 400D, canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS, 1.4 teleconverter

    They all seem over processed to me?

    can you say in what way by chance? Its tricky for me to see overprocessing in them (though I admit they might look processed)
    at least I don't think I have gone too processing mad, but its tricky (one can get blind to it in their own work at times)

    I don't see overprocessed at all. I think they look great (although I'll admit...I really don't see a difference between the first and second sets). I love the framing and very, very sharp shots. I like em.

    I don't see overprocessed, either. I think it's always neat when a photographer gets you this close to an animal that you will never get this close to.. I like them for that reason.

    actually I think that works rather well :)
    (barring the random circle in the middle of the kat where you hit is back with the blur tool ;))
