Captured this guy at the zoo. His facial expression made me feel really sorry for him. It looks like he's stuck and grown old in the zoo. I hope the bokeh of the rope gives the impression of him being "prisoned". The photo was taken through the glass of the cage, and I was lucky to find a spot that has no glare.

What a facial expression!

I keep getting drawn back to this face - very endearing. Bumping this up altho' I think the bokeh is so-so (serves its purpose but ... maybe its the rope that spoils it). 7 anyway.

Oh that is a sad face...nicely captured.

Nice guy. The centered composition and the fact that there isn't anything to draw the eye into the picture make this a decidedly average entry. The oof area isn't very well defined and does not add to the picture.

Love the expression on this guy! The colors of the background really compliment the subject.
