- Cute mom and juvenile marred by intrusive, out of focus hand. Keep shooting until the composition works.
- This is a good zoo shot showing the interaction between the two subjects. The maker found them in an unusual pose that made for a unique image. The maker did a good job of holding detail in the black fur. The catchlight in the eyes are grreat. Unfortunately the one gorilla has his arm in the top and out of focus. I'm sure going in and reposing him was not an option, but it is a liittle distracting. The bright leaves could be burned down a little to keep the viewer interested in the subject.
- Well done. Great eye contact
- Clarity & lighting in the faces is superb, however, blurred areas (surrounding arm & greenery) detract from intended tender story and photo as a whole.
