If only he were in the wild, he truly would be king. I s'pose the real king of his domain is the zookeeper.

A brilliant shot, very suggestive of the reality he should experience.

Where did you take this picture of my boss?? Very good, Congradulations! This image was my #1 selection.

Congratulations on your ribbon! Your picture is great and shows authority very well - I knew it would end up in the ribbons the first time I looked at it!

Congratulations on your first ribbon! Kinda reminds me of what my mother turned into when we wouldnt listen.

Congratulations Scott on your first ribbon. This would have fit in the humor challenge also. Made me smile.

Definitely exhibits authority. Great capture.
11/30/2004 04:09:20 PM
I like this a lot. Excellent expression. I wonder if it would have more impact if the color was bumped up a bit?

Wonderful capture 10

wild image, incredible expression. probably would even be more powerful if cropped to a head shot. a bit of a stretch for the challenge, though.

Scary guy. He looks like he's a Type A personality.
11/26/2004 09:29:13 PM
I get the feeling this will come very close to winning this challenge.... but I'm not exactly thrilled with the crop here, I think You've left too much space at the top and perhaps taken too much off at the arms. 7.

Scary. I won't argue with that guy. 'Yeah Kong, whatever you say, hehe...'
Nice crop, the picture is slightly taken from below, emphasizing the gorilla's majesty.
11/24/2004 11:47:25 AM

Powerful image. Great angle and crisp image with a soft background, which works well. I would like to see a greater contrast, blacker blacks and pinker pinks.
