Default TCon17 First Go - Zoo

Spent the afternoon at the zoo yesterday and practised with the TCon for the first time. I ended up ditching the tripod and using it handheld as all the critters were moving way to fast for me. The lion shot is unfortunately taken through a scratched glass screen - it was that or through all the wire fencing. Anyway, please do give me your comments and opinions.

Hi Dyane

I went to the zoo as well (I will start my topic in some minutes)

For my photographic taste, you started this series very well but then the photos become overcroped, to close.

I like to see more from the subject.

But i like alot #1 and #4

Keep posting

Handheld with the tcon have to be tough shots. Very well done. I agree with Rui about giving your subjects some room to breathe.

The Lion is my favourite one but they are all good.

Good shots of my fav subject!

I assume it's hard to compose much given the artificial surroundings, but good sharp shots given how hard it is to shoot with Tcon.

Keep it up!

Hey, I thought you said you were rubbish with the Tcon?

These are well good, and you turn around and say 'hand-held'.....

I have to say #2 and #4 are also my my favs here

Hi Everyone and thanks so much for your feedback. I agree about the shots being really "up close", but as DML says its hard to get decent shots without all of the horrid background/foreground scenarios that occur in zoos - and I was trying to cut these out....... but I do understand why this was commented on.

Jim - I am as surprised as you that these shots have come out so clear
