Hi,

yesterday, our little family went to the Zoo.
That's an exciting but difficult place to get good pictures.
Fences, reflecting windows, fast moving animals, poor lighting .... are a stiff challenge to the photographer !

I shot several hundreds of pics, only to have in the end maybe 20 keepers that I'm really happy with.

Here's some of them ..

Good for you, I can only imagine how difficult it must have been with all the people wandering in and out of your field of view, too. That closeup of what appears to be a giant lizard is quite incredible - you've really shown off his scaly armor wonderfully!

You did well on all. The monkey (baby or just small?) has a very forlorn quality or that may just be my reading into it.

That last one of the mother hippo and her baby is very sweet.

I'm sure you and your family had a wonderful time. Thanks for sharing some of your 20 with us!

To get 20 keepers from a few hundred is actually pretty good. And, if the rest of the keepers are anything like these ones, then you deserve to feel good. Great shots, nicely presented.

Print some, and enjoy...

Very little processing, in fact, Richiebee !
They were shot in RAW, processed with Silkypix.
Just some contrast and saturation tweaks done.

Frame added in Corel PSP Photo X2
