Having my baby

By kuipje  
This picture was shot in Burgers Zoo, in Arnhem, in the east part of the Netherlands close to the German border. About 1 1/4 hrs drive from Reeuwijk. It's really a very nice zoo, not so many cages Smile
(accidentally shot in JPEG instead of RAW
As always advise/comments/mods/tips much appreciated

V2 is original

Title song "Having my baby" by Paul Anka & Anita Meyer (she's Dutch)

Sorry about the soccer.

Adjusted white balance, and reduced highlights in the mod.

In England, we are in black shoes for the next four years. We deserve to be, I think.

I prefer V2, as you've almsot lost the wire netting. That's the big problem in any shot in these circumstances. You get very little control of things. Best option is to use the long end of the zoom, get as close to the netting as is safe (though you don't have any problems with the netting close to the lens, as far as I can see), and use the widest aperture you can.
