Western Lowlands Gorilla - Oumbi (7)

By PhilT2
This is Oumbi the gorilla from Twycross Zoo. Another archive image which suffers from a terrible background which is shown in V1. This one was a bit tricky to make something of, but eventually managed to create a good backdrop using a picture of my hedge which I have blurred to try to emulate depth of field. I am quite happy with the end result and would be interested in any comment you would like to leave (good or bad...I don't mind
Been a bit busy the last couple of days so hope to catch up with your uploads soon
