"Zoo Results"



          

I actually like my Elephant image better, but this is a pretty good first result, I'm encouraged to go back and get some more. I didn't notice the little piece of gunk till I posted the picture, I also got it to look more like the slide than this (i.e. BETTER) after playing with it in Photoshop for a bit.

Hi Tom,

Not bad, but your background doesn't look very African. Most zoo shots are animal close ups with as little background as possible and placed well out of focus. The trick is to show the animals in a way that you can't tell it is taken in a zoo. Unless that's your intention of course. Zoos or gamefarms are interesting places to take close ups of shy animals. Pictures, which would be impossible to take in the wild.

Good luck,
Photophil

Yeah you're right but I couldn't resist the compositional elements of balancing the picture with the male & the tree. Take a look at this portrait, I think you'll like it. By the way will somebody tell me how yall are posting pictures right on this page without having to link to some other page?

Now, that's a great picture. Could be taken anywhere, in South-Africa, Kenia, Zimbabwe. Beautiful light as well.

Well done,

P.S: I'm not sure, but I think you need a personally website to post your pictures directly into the Nikonians. Anyhow, that's what works for me.

Go to your image that you want posted, then back click on the image, click properties, go to the http tag and highlight the image number(http//etc,etc,) When you have the image name highlighted, hit your ctrl button and then the C key, when you are ready to place your image in a posting, just hit your ctrl key and then the V key.

I agree with with Photophil, I do like to shoot close-ups at the Zoo. I am glad to see your post, as I am contemplating going to Zoo Atlanta in the future. The lion compound looks like a nice place to get some good shots. This image is of the White Lions of the Cincinnati Zoo.

Taipei,
          

I agree with photophil too.

Once I told a friend that I shot this photo in Afica and she had no doubt about it. Well.. I intentionally didn't crop out the artificial stuff in the top of the frame just to see if anyone notice that.

It's shot at Taipei City Zoo and I stood on a high postion to take this shot.

Gilbert
