Gorilla mother and baby
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This gorilla baby was 3 days old and gender was not clear. As you can see we were very close to the mother and her baby. She was very calm and it seems that she was proud to show her baby.|

Very interesting capture and a good composition with the little one in the center and the mother's head in a "Rule of thirds" position.
An alternative compo that would focus more on the relationship between the two would be a closer crop in portrait format with the mother and little one arranged on the diagonal.
BG could be blurred a bit more, but as it a quite uniform green colour I find it not too busy. Well done!
What a sweet picture and how lucky you are to have witnessed this scene. I feel the photo could benefit from a little more contrast to really showcase the subject. I did a short workshop on it to see if that would make any difference. Thanks for sharing such a special picture. Oops! you have not authorized a workshop. Try cropping it a little and increasing the contrast. : )
