Technical perfection is only ever important if it improves the asthetic. It is not the precursor to beauty. Not in art..not in music and not in photography!

Thanks guys :)

It is interesting for me that the fact they are close up shot's is mentioned a couple of times. I hadn't really thought about it when I posted but of coarse this is the case.
I suppose when your at the zoo the animals envoirement either has concrete or man made objects and usually not very photographic or interesting so I find my self makeing the animal fill the frame rather than part of it.
Also I think it's way to easy to zoom in with a telephoto lens rather than try to compose the animal with it's background and with me anyway I find it's the first thing I unconiously do.
I think I will make a point of trying to resist the temptation to zoom in and try and make something of the animal and it's background rather than do the same old portrait shot done so often.

Thanks ;)

The goal is not to change your subjects, but for the subject to change the photographer.
