    I am not necessarily new to photography; just finally getting back into it after a very long hiatus. Got this shot at the Louisville Zoo this past weekend. Everyone seems to really like it, but then, as I tell them, they are biased. I want to know what folks that know photography, but don't really know me think.

    Although I feel the capture of this shot is really cool, the lighting is not great. If anything, some fill flash would have been needed. What I know about animal photography(not a ton) the key to any shot is connection to their eyes. And you may be missing that a little.

    I am surprised I was getting good reactions since I was not sure about it myself. It was a quick, bring the camera up get it in focus get the picture thing. Thanks for the comments. May see what I can do with it in PS.
