I love snow leopards think they are the most beautiful of all the big cats, This one isone of 3 they have at Marwell Zooalogical park in Hampshire.

there enclosure is mainly wire fencing with a portion of glass for viewing, I was crouching down in front of this glass and after this shot I was very lucky when he sat directly in front of me. this is what I felt was the best shot i think his face is beautiful,

I'm still learning so arent too sure how to take shots properly through glass. I had the lens right up to the glass to try and avoid the glare.

ive uploaded this for some advice on how to do it properly. Ive also put this one for modifying , is there anything I can do in photoshop to reduce the effect of the glare?.

I love this shot so much. thanks

Yes one of my favourites to. If you want to shot through galss then look at getting a rubber hood and putting right on to the glass to there i9s no chance of reflections getting in.

You can also shot through the wire use a F4 and so long as they are a reasonable distance from the wire use shouldn't notice the wire. also helps if the wire is in the shade at this cuts down on reflection on the wire.

have a look at my portfolio as i have a couple taken through the wire
