Big cats at the Philly zoo

  1. I mentioned in a previous post that the wife and I went to the zoo Saturday. I posted a few of her pics while I was processing mine. I went through mine and found a few that I liked. All pictures are with the D2x and the 80-200/2.8 or the 300/4. I am really starting to like this camera a lot. The detail it is capable of is truly amazing. Now I need to go to the zoo more often so I can capture these cats in motion.

    As always, I welcome C&C, good or bad.
     
  2. Nice kitties, Rich! Sharp and nice DOF.
    Probably I would have tried to also get the feet into the picture for #2.
    WB of the last one looks a little greenish? Shot through glass?

  5. After looking at these again, I can't believe I left that green hue in the pics. It wasn't very apparent on my monitor in PP, but on the web they look green. Here is a redo of the last lion shot. I think it looks better now.
