Today at the zoo
Posted By: WJW, 09-07-2009, 08:14 PM

Due to a lot of factors I haven't had time to do much photography lately. However, I did manage to slip out to the local zoo for a few hours today. All were taken with Pentax 50-200mm ED lens and for the Giraffe and Eland I added a Kenko 1.4X TC

I am impressed by the true to life color you held yourself to. Not too much contrast either. Sharpness is also nicely done. Impressive skills I tell you.

Yeah, i flipped through the pics and thought nice shots, nice zoo, whats next, then i got to the last one and thats the one that you caught just right. It made me comment didn't it? A wise mod once once said in a critique "cute trumps all". Great shot.

Thanks to everyone for the comments. The last shot was the most unique and was more by luck than planning. The Meerkat stood up just as the sun broke through and he only stood there for a few seconds.

As for the colors, I try and keep the color to my Kodachrome 25 palette. :-)

Thanks all!
