Camera: Nikon D300
Lens: Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8G IF-ED
Location: Melbourne Zoo, Australia
Date: Jun 6, 2009

Date Uploaded: Jun 6, 2009

The Image: I am a FOTZ (Friend of the Zoo) so I can go in any time really. I was on my way to the markets and stopped by on a Saturday Morning with my Sigma/Bigma lens.

I like his expression.

The Edit: Duplicate layer/multiply/mask. Some dodge and burn and sharpening. Levels etc. Fonts are all from the Helvetica Family.

The Prediction: I reckon people will recognise this as one of mine. I don't know, maybe 6.7XXX?

Post:

Glad my prediction was wrong. I ad another image with text onto my profile front page, which is now a new goal for me :) Thanks everyone, and congratulations 21.gif Jovan your image truly deserved first place.

  Photographer found comment helpful.

stylish and very good in many ways. His nose and mouth seem brighter and sharper than his eyes - that's my only nitpick. (but hey, don't listen to me - you're going to blow my entry out of the water!)
