A grin is all you'll get from me....

Thanks for your clicks, comments & votes to my previous image for which I'm most appreciative. I would especially like to thank Jeff (Kojack) for his valued UA.

I hope you may like my image of the young giraffe today which is my offering for s.Sunday.Smile I needed to use a high ISO as it was taken indoors at ZSL, London Zoo last November. I liked its pose & normally it would be difficult to get close as it would be scared. I also included the colour as a Version & added vignetting. I often think that I should stay in my comfort zone but for a change, I tried to experiment a little with this one.SmileSmile

Thanks for looking & have a great day.

They are such curious creatures.
You have done well to get this fine shot. Normally I like color, but in this I think the lead shows him to better advantage.

Two excellent versions, Fred - I like both equally.
Sometimes it pays to move out of one's comfort zone, as you have proved here very well indeed!Smile
