Gorillas - Burgers Zoo, Arnheim, Netherlands
FZ5, tripod through thick and dirty glass, with all those reflections!



























I hope you like it!

Sven, In spite of the thick dirty glass, you have managed to take an incredible set of extraordinary photographs here. If I could have a favorite out of all these great photos it would be the one of the old gorilla looking up to heaven...

baby shots appeal regardless of species or dirty glass. Very good captures.

Those are great Sven! The young gorilla sitting on the log is my favorite. The zoo I visited didn't have any gorillas, and only a few of the smaller primates. The Phoenix Zoo has gorillas and no glass or cage in the way, but you are so far from the animals. I might go there before summer while the weather is still nice.

Unbelievable shots.

They'd be great also if they d been shot without any glass in between... where are reflections ? Maybe neither a polarizer would have done better, for it eats a couple of stops of light... Really a post to remember for me, and in the same day as the one on snakes... Thanks for the emotions

That gorilla looking up to heaven shot is indeed one of the finest I have ever seen. A nice series.

Looking at the leek heaven ;-) - the keeper was above the visitors.....

Where are the reflections? On all those many pictures, that I could not use.
I was stuffed between many visitors during feeding time. The nice lady in red destroyed many shots.

Thanks for those kind remarks. This give me a different view on my captures.
BTW my favorite shot is the last one...

Cheers

Sven

GREAT shots, make me scroll the screenup and down several times to view. I don't know why, but these pics stir in me some kind of inexplicable emotion. The babies, with their cloudy eyes, somehow look sad to me.
