A bunch of equipment with Canon on it and some stuff with Sigma on it. The desire to capture a moment in time and share it with you! :)

Thanks guys :) I'm extremely happy with the jaguar and it's probably the best picture I've taken. Now that I'm living 2 miles from the zoo and have a membership, I'll have time to practice to bring everything else up to that level.

Last one till next trip, just a cute hippo & Zebras:

Don't want to start a new thread since these are all from the same set.

I didn't like this one, but after going back through my files the other day this one wanted to be saved. Not sure why I only took one picture of this situation, wish I would have had better composition.

The cat and the polar bear...the color looks off to me. Looks like there's a greenish hue on both images that I would correct. I think the cat shot is the best of the lot...I'd crop it in a bit and correct the color issues and I think you'd have a great print there.

Peace,
Jim

The polar bear definitely does. However, the colors on the cat are correct. Here (external link) is what he looks like with a blue/green hue (the original image). This (external link) is probably what you mean colorwise, right? The color of that cat editing it that way doesn't look natural.

My favorite is the Leopard, but the lighting behind the elephants is really good.

Actually to me that second image looks too yellow...but it still looks better to me than the one posted here.

Just my opinion,
Jim

Well, I welcome edits so if you or anyone else wants to put up what they think it should look like I wouldn't mind. I'm open to convincing :lol: Removing the original hue wasn't an easy task since there are no real white points to judge by - the ventral fur on this animal is not white, at least not white white.

I just moved down here 3 months ago for school. To my great surprise, I live only 2 miles away from the zoo. Unfortunately, free time & 'weather permitting' never align here in Philly. Rain, rain, go away...

It's a great place, especially during the week when there aren't so many people crowding everything.
