    Thanks I was just told by the Art Director that they have chosen the Gorilla shot for some use in publications this month, along with a bunch of other shots for use in print ads in the future

    Very nice Mike. I usually am not fond of zoo shots but these were excellent.
     
  8. Your gorilla shots are truly amazing. When I saw your new avatar I thought RR was visiting. You have done a great job with these zoo shots Mike and should be very pleased with them.
     
  9. Mike,

    I like the gorilla shots. Was in Wichita and the only gorilla shots I could get
    were through some glass.

    Yours are great.

    Nice shots, especially the second gorilla shot. You did a good job of removing any hints of the surrounding zoo exhibits from the compositions which makes these look much more natural.
     
  12. Thanks so much I apprecaite the comments and taking the time to view

    Killer good shots, Mike

    Love emm all, but what's going on with the Eagle shot? Looks to have some mysterious soft spots on it, like on the leg feathers and the wings' edges. :Unsure:
     
  14. Wow! Some more excellent images. That gorilla shot, also your new avatar, is excellent: no wonder they picked it up for publication. Kudos on another great post! I guess you are really happy with the X and the big gun, huh? :wink: :biggrin:
     
  15. Great shots, Mike. Love the compositions, DOF and expressions you have here.

  17. Thanks so much Harry I try to make them look as natural as possible
     
  18. Thanks Gordon, I trimmed my hair up for that avatar, I so enjoy shooting at the zoo

    Thanks they have a great open area for viewign the gorillas these are new to the zoo so there time outside is sort of minimal till they get used to their surroundings

    thanks the Eagle was taken through the fence and I have seen this before where it causes some areas to be oof or just look a little different. The zoo wants me to shoot these and might let me inside the cage to do it that would be cool... I think
