Hunger !

By TornadoTys
Another image from my visit to Colchester Zoo. I believe this is a Gelada Baboon, are the last surviving species of grass-grazing primates, spending ,most of their time on the ground and rarely climbing trees.

I am not if I should have cloned out the wood poles in bottom corners in Photoshop, as it does add natural framing or have more negative space ! ?
This little fellow was actually sitting on the cross section of the poles.

I used my Sony A6600 sporting a Canon EF 70-300L IS USM lens via Sigma MC-11 adapter, and though it works ok the focus is not snappy when the 70-300 is on my Canon 7Dii !

Hope you guys like the editing which is in my Fine Art style as I wish to have all the attention on this little fellow.

Please feel free to leave any tips, advice, comments and critiques

The wooden poles are arranged such as to pull the viewers eye to the subject I guess.
Personally I would have had a bash at cloning then away on a duplicate image but perhaps with a bit of a crop from the right so your subject wasn't bang in the middle.
He is kinda cute.

The larger image impact is what I was hoping to achieve, and hopefullybring awareness to our growing climate issues.

Thank you for viewing and comments

My skills in PS are limited as I do all my editing in LightRoom, however as you mentioned about having a go at cloning. I thought i would have a bash and it turned out better than I hoped !
