Handsome Boy!

By pagey  
Hi all, Took this on Saturday at Howletts Zoo in Kent, this magnificant silver back was sat up next to the fence striking poses for the camera, unfortunately the fencing made getting a clear one of him quite tricky - would of preferred the focus on the left eye - but i'm still wuite happy with the result.

I have desaturated the background to bring him out a bit more and have done the best I can with the blurred cross hatch of the fence.

Hope you like it & comments welcome. KP

He looks really great! A bit like a shy boy? Maybe it's because of this lips.

Great close up, love the angle, crop and lighting. White bits in the BG are still a bit distracting.
