Framed Gibbon

This photo was also taken at The South Lakes Wild Animal Park on Spetember 12th 2009.
Pictured is a Gibbon, which looks like he has been placed inside a picture frame made by the wooden climbing area.
The only thing I am not very keen about in this picture, is the fact that there appears to be another bar in the background ... although I'm not sure whether I'm being picky!
Any tips, criticisms, and constructive comments are welcomed.

Hi Alex, I like the frame and sometimes you have to go with the background that is there, it would be good practice to clone out items you do not want, because you have pointed the camera at the sky the Gibbon is underexposed but this can be easy to rectify in Photoshop, on the whole a nice capture!

Haha poser Wink maybe to get rid of the bar you could try using the spot burner? I know it might sound silly, but it blends the background behind the burnt area for you automatically... Maybe give it a go an upload the newer version tomorrow if it works? Smile
