I really like this portrait, Clint.
The color contrast between the white fur around the face and the dark BG is quite dramatic.
The details are beautifully sharp, and I like the light focusing on the face.
The intense (and seemingly worried) look is amazing.
Happy New Year and TFS. : )

Masterful capture here. Just love the light...very effective and brings good mood to the image. Composition and exposure all excellent. You wouldn't know that this was shot through glass. I hope you get a few more like this in '07.

Are you sure she didn't just come from the hair salon? It is just wonderful. I find it hard to believe that it was shot through glass. Zoo glass is often pretty thick and generally not very clean. It is an impressive shot. I can see why you are proud of it.
Thanks for sharing and I wish you lots of great photo opportunities in 2007.

Hi clint an outstanding portart shot that even in thumbnail stands out head and shoulder above other images here on TN, The fact that you managed to take it through armoured glass they use in zoos and avoided all the greasy hand prints left by the children trying to get a closer view. makes this a brilliant capture, the detail in the skin and hair are perfect.
small tips for others look at the edges of the glass for clean spots or take a packet of glass wipes to clean a small patch, then get the camera lens in contact with the glass to reduce the reflections from it.
TFS yours Robert

Una composición practicamente perfecta Clint, por el punto de vista captado, la belleza de la iluminación y el fondo logrado, el montón de detalles que se perciben del animal con total agudeza y foco.
El encuadre ligeramente descentrado beneficia la estética de la compo.
A practically perfect composition Clint, for the captured point of view, the beauty of the illumination and the achieved bottom, the heap of details that they are perceived of the animal with total sharpness and focus.
The lightly uncentered framing benefits the aesthetics of the compo.
