Ver nice picture, realy looks like this gorilla is in the wild.. He looks a bit sad, thats what i like about it, almost a human expression! I also like the composition, nice portret! Nice sharp and good DOF..! The colors are very nice aswell..

Hi Laurie, nice natural looking shot.
A well captured facial expression with good detail and nice perspective.

It's hard to belive that this photo was taken from a zoo. Very natural looking composition with a very good PoV.
Thank you for sharing.
