G'day Skip!

By meekie
Another photo shot at Steve Irwin's "Australia Zoo" in Queensland. The Kangaroos are so tame that kids just love em. As with the other pics, with me being an absolute beginner, it was taken in AF mode. Thanks for taking a look & leaving a vote/comment.

This is a nice start Graham. Moving around slightly to the left would allow us to see the kids face, and dropping down to one knee would give the shot slightly more impact as the viewer would be on the same level as the subject. It's an endearing shot though.

How nice to see the innocent attitude of a child and the domesticated behavior of the kangaroo. Good shot Graham, just follow the suggestions of our seniors and we will not go wrong. I believe sooner or later you'll gonna handle your slr in great effect.

You're right there Paul. I totally agree to it being the best zoo in the world. It's a great testament to Steve.
