Lens: Pentax DFA* 70-200mm Camera: Pentax K3-II ISO: 1600 Shutter Speed: 1/640s Aperture: F2.8 

This guy caught my attention with his mood. Couldn't help but think what his feelings would be as I imagined how he would wish to be holding on to branches instead of steel bars.
Tried to convey this mood but as usual I'm open for suggestions.

Good work capturing the feeling. I feel like this at work sometimes actually but I think your subject has both more grit and looks better than me doing it.

Very poignant. I used to study primates and spent time in Indonesia where young orangutans were being introduced or reintroduced to the wild. Their joy was the opposite of this photo.

That sounds like an amazing experience to see them in their right habitat. Im in fact heading to Borneo in a month to hopefully see a few wild orangutans and thought it would be interesting to compare this to seeing one in captivity
