Class Clown


BetterPhoto.com All Time Best Photo Contest Staff FavoriteBetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Class Clown
Class Clown
Class Clown is the nickname of this young male orangutan. I captured him here mid swing, and making a face as class clowns will do. There was a bit of treetop visible in the lower right which I cloned out to simplify the image. Shutter 1/250, f5.6, Tamron 28-200mm lens, hand held. I also did a levels adjustment and unsharp mask.
