Award Shortlist   

That's My Boy (4)

By PhilT2
Many thanks for all the comments an votes on "When I grow up...". Especial thanks for all the user awards which are too many to list. So very pleased and amazed at the response.

Today is another of my all time favourites from Chester zoo. I did post this 5 years ago but as I was not an E2 member then it was very small and I made a huge mistake by putting a vignette around it. Over the years on here I think I have learned a little about presenting shots slightly better than I used to. Sorry for reposting but not able to take any new shots at the moment and just looking through some earlier stuff on an old hard drive.

This image is over saturated as I have found looking at it on my hi res (work) monitor. I hate laptop screens looked much better on that !!
Have loaded V2 which is more realistic in terms of colour
