I took this photograph in Chester Zoo last month. This has to be one of my best nature shots yet!
A little bit soft on the focus as it's shot through 'cloudy' (dirty finger printed) glass.

I will agree with you on this one. Extremely good shot with an enormous cute factor. I also like the lighting on this one

Such a cute pose and like the portrait format. Its a good image but looks just a little soft to me on its fur and also I might have been inclined to remove the single strand of grass bottom right.
Still though a good shot

Thanks, it was shot through glass! I tried sharpening it a little more, but this brought in too much noise.
I might have a go later on to see if I can make it any sharper.

Hi Gareth,

Apologies, but I hadn't realised you had found me. It was good to chat at Chester Zoo last year and it looks like you are doing some good things with the Nikon! I aggree with your comments, this shot is a cracker, great lighting and you have kept the detail in the shadows. Great depth of field as well. I expect the cubs are a bit bigger now.

All the very best,

Steve
