I love orangutans, therefore I love this! Besides a great subject, the composition is wonderful.

What a portrait, Peter. The look on the "kid's" face is priceless

its almost impossible not to smile when looking at these creatures....there is something very "nat geo" in your composition and processing

I too feel the moms face has been sharpened too much but I dont care. It's truly a great shoot. Congrats!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

What a fantastic shot and it really hits the Challenge. It is very pleasing and well rounded. The shot causes the eye to wonder comfortably through out the shot. There are no over powering areas. Even the background is pleasant and adds to viewing. The only thing I could possibly be critical of would be the mothers face. It may be my monitor but it seems a bit too much sharpening was used. Again It may be my monitor. Over all this is the nicest picture I have had to critique and by far the easiest. PERFECT. Well done keep up the awesome work.

I thought I'd commented on this but it must have been a mental one, as I ran out of time to vote on the challenge. It would though have been top marks for this lovely studied capture. And the little fella's toungue is just priceless!

Normally I don't like shots that lead your eye out of the frame, but in this instance it gives an emotive feeling of non challance (SP) that is priceless! Congrats on the yellow. Feels good don't it?

Apes are certainly very family oriented. So sweet with their babies. This photo is very well captured. I think I have seen other ape photos on this site. You must have a nice zoo close to you. I wonder if your the same person with the other good ape photos?

I like the 'flow' of this picture, as I would call it. All their hair is sort of flowing to the right, the same directon they're looking and the same with the crop (the handsome subjects are on the right). It really makes this photo have impact.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/11/2005 01:50:51 PM
How adorable! Great Capture!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/11/2005 01:08:19 PM
Great colors although in a way a bit unrealistic it comes out good. You get good details on the hair which is always difficult.

07/11/2005 12:56:59 PM
Really nice capture. I love orangutans. Their expressions are great! Pretty good DOF (although it's not as sharp as it could be in spots). Lighting against the back/side wall is a little harsh too, but it's tough to count off much for this shot. Nice work!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/11/2005 12:27:27 PM
AWESOME! Best one yet!

Great composition. I love it. The background texture in the upper right distracts somewhat.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/11/2005 05:28:28 AM
I am not one of those prissy pin pricking voeters that nit pick every image. this has one major fault that looses ribbon status and that is the great amount of white uninteresting backgroung Yuk man that is bad, but the rest of it somehow makes up for it the expressions are priceless and I will vote an 8 for this one
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/11/2005 02:42:39 AM
aww - very precious. This has to be my favorite non-human photo thus far. Great focus, detail, and colors! DOF is equally as good.
