These are beautiful shots. I love the colors and clarity. The black border goes great with these pictures.

That bad huh? :) I actually didn't adjust the colors on this, just a bit of dodge and burn on the fur. I'll play around with desaturation.

The picture of Clyde (the Orangutan) was shot through glass that has a bit of a green tint to it. That's probably what's causing the apparent over-saturation.

The Camels at the SD Zoo are very docile and gentle. I have yet to see one of them spit at a visitor...

I love these shots... amazing to see similar pictures fromt he same venue and yet the quality of the photos are miles apart..

Great shots, did you use the 70-200?


Love this forum, even though I shoot with dark side. :D

Yeah, most of them were with the 70-200. The flamingo was shot with the 24-70 though.

Ah, that makes sense. Here's a desaturated version (Green = -39) ;)
