    I took this shot today at the zoo and I can't quite decide if the exposure is correct. It looks maybe slightly under exposed to me. Any comments or thoughts from your screen?

    It was pretty cloudy. 1/200 f3.5

    Thanks!

    I first saw this photo yesterday and am surprised it still goes with 0 replies today.

    I think there is enough detail on the gorilla's face and chest and shoulders and arms, which is why I wouldn't say this photo is underexposed. It is presented in a quite small version only(500px the longest side), which makes judging things hard (we suggest to post photos which are 800px at their long side), but I think that longer exposure would have blown the wall behind him.

    If you feel his body is still too dark, you could do some selective brightening in post processing.
