    Deep In Thought.

    Posting a photograph for the first time in a year and it's taken me over 30 mins of trial and error to get the pic to show. Combination of a change in the method and me being a year older.
    This is a lowland gorilla taken at Howletts animal park, near Canterbury. Gorillas are one of the animals where at Howletts, it's pretty much impossible to get a natural looking shot, so had to concentrate on just the face.

                    Thanks for all the comments. It actually came out better than I expected as I was shooting through heavy mesh and at an angle. Looking at the original again, I'm now wondering if a wider crop would be better. I chose the previous crop to suit a frame size for printing.

                      Both are cracking shots but the first one works best for me, very striking

                          Thanks Paul and Lee. The second shot is just the 'as taken' version of the first one, to show the difficulty of getting a natural looking shot due to the surroundings.
                          I did try a wider version of the first one but it didn't look right due to the light coming in from the side.
