Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Fauna III (Basic Editing)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Nikon D3
Lens: Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM for Nikon
Location: Singapore Zoological Gardens
Date: Mar 29, 2009
Aperture: F6.3
ISO: 1600
Shutter: 1/125s
Galleries: Nature, Animals
Date Uploaded: Mar 29, 2009

It could have been even sharper , but I had to use ISO1600 which was unfortunate. The lighting was not too good and I shot at 500mm focal length hand-held with OS on , so I sacrificed ISO for a more usable shutter speed of 1/125s
I love the contrast between the mothers fingers and the fragile baby orang utan.
The look in the baby's eyes were just so touching.
I hope this shot will tug the hearts of DPC voters and give me a good score.
