Yayyyyyyy!!!
You won!!! I knew this one deserved BIG badges! I visited the zoo today, and saw crowds like this watching the gorillas, and thought of you and this image!
I'm really happy you got a gold, Karen!
Smiles, Lisa♥ #8076103

Thank you Chris and Lisa!

And Lisa - OMG you thought of a total stranger and her picture while you were at the zoo? That is the biggest compliment anyone could have given me!! Especially since I'm really modest/shy about my work and only started showing my stuff in the last year or so. So to anyone reading this - DO IT! It has already opened so many doors for me. Sorry for the long post and I don't even know if you'll see it, but thank you again for that compliment! AND CONGRATS TO ALL THE WINNERS!! :) And by the way? Thank you, you great people at Better Photo! You guys all rock!! #8076235

Description

Nikon D300, f/5 at 1/500", ISO 800, 340mm. Philadelphia Zoo. The children (and adults) behind the glass are a picture in and of themselves. Look at their expressions! Look at the expressions on the gorillas, just after they finished playing together. Mama still wanted to play but the kidster was worn out. Mama's response to rejection?

Exif: F Number: 5, Exposure Bias Value: -0.67, ExposureTime: 1/500 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 800, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 340.00 mm, Model: NIKON D300
