Forlorn by StevenDavisPhoto Forlorn by StevenDavisPhoto
This shot won 1st Place in Aperture Academy's 2010 Extraordinary Exposures photo contest. [link]

This is Oscar Jonesy, the Alpha Male Gorilla at the San Francisco Zoo.

EDIT: Gave it a portrait crop and re-processed it a bit more to my liking.

A print of this shot can be purchased at my Etsy Store - [link]

Works well for me - especially the portrait orientation compared to the spacious landscape version from earlier. Detail in the eyes is excellent. As far as I can remember, I also think you reduced the overall contrast a bit, which looks good.

Plong! (That's two cents falling from my pocket...)
