A wonderful, tender moment. I like the muted light and their fur standing up from a breeze. The baby is so cute, hiding in its parents. Just my personal opinion: I wish there was a little more space at the bottom below the hand. I also take zoo animal photos, so I know it can be difficult to frame animals, and the overall, powerful feeling of this moment has been captured beautifully.
Good eye. These are actually 'wild' apes who tolerate humans. I photographed them on Gibralter. I was sitting so close to them that I was afraid that they might get defensive because they have a young. The hand was bothering me as well. Guess I was a bit nervous. I had more photo's where I have more of the hand but I have to say this is still my favourite from the bunch. Thank you so much for your feedback and compliment.
I did a lot of research on camera bodies and lenses. I ended up getting the 60D body and a canon EF 50mm f1.8 ii + a standard lens (got that with the body). Unfortunately the canon EF 50mm f1.8 ii isn't very good for pet photography, too much movement. I really want to get the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Standard Zoom Lens. Heard that it's a very good all-a-round lens. But it's really expensive. What lenses do you use? Any recommendations?
Hi there and congrats for your awesome gallery! Nice shots and post-production! $2000-2300 for the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM..you should really use it at this price Second option will be Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 IF EX DG HSM Zoom Lens for about $800-900 you should try it, same fast lens maybe a bit more noisy..but hey! I use the EF 50mm and the 70-300 and for all around a Sigma 18-125mm. I just bought the same 60D body, I'm happy for now...
