Winner of the November, 2016 "Dominant Color" photo contest
By LondonWombat in Photo Contests on Jan 22, 2017
When I got the phone call to join a friend to visit a local reptile exhibit I did not hesitate to say "Yes". I took two lenses, the DA 35mm Limited and my DA 55-300mm. I took many great shots that day from behind the safety of thick glass. To cut down glare and reflections on the glass I used the lens hood and put the camera right up against the glass. This also helped to stabilize the camera.
I was lucky with this shot. The lighting was well balanced and illuminated the interior display very well.
Pentax K-r, 1/100 sec, f/6.3, ISO 3200, DA 55-300mm @ 150mm. Processed in Lightroom
