I was really intrigued by this gorilla's intense expression. I couldn't help but wonder what she was thinking.

Outstanding Lisa!! Both versions are beautiful, but the increased blur in the bg really brings all the focus to the wonderful details and clarity in your capture.

Thanks for such uplifting comments, Toni, Kathy, Dianna, Philippe, Tammy, and Colleen!
I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised with this re-do. I mean, I had really liked the original, but after submitting it a few times, I decided to try to lighten it a bit before submitting it again. While I was at it, I blurred and did some cloning and burning of the bg. I also used curves, which in my eyes, helped to balance the light.
I'm glad you like the re-do, too!
So glad you ALL stopped by!
Blessings, Lisa

Have you ever considered making posters? Having the Zoo offer them in the gift shops, Lisa? You have a gift for capturing the emotions of these precious animals and it should be shared with the world somehow. Maybe even National Geographic would be interested??? I bet colleges would buy them, too, for the walls of the Anthro class rooms etc...The possibilities are endless if you are up to marketing yourself. Amazing work, once again. -Laura

This just came up in rotation on my BP Home Page, Lisa, and I thought I'd take a moment to send a belated congratulations. She has a wonderful, intriguing expression indeed. Wonderful win.

Like Nikki, I was on the BP HomePage when I saw this photograph, Lisa, and I am so happy I happened to come across this wonderful portrait. It is by far, the best Gorilla Portrait I have ever seen. My belated Congratulations on this BEAUTIFUL Winner!!!
