Zoo through the nifty fifty

Thought I would try something different at the last visit to the Colchester Zoo last Saturday. Only took my 50mm f1.8 lens - was a bit of a mistake as I really like the close ups I get with my longer stuff.

All the pics below are cropped apart from the Giraffe's tongue shot :eek:

1 - Little squirrel monkey, had to post this because of his expression even though focus is not superb.

2 - They have a new enclosure for the Sloth's that you can walk through, when it gets a bit warmer will b a great feature (bit cold for them last week)

Hello there


I think you done well considering you only used the 50mm. :smashin:

To be honest with you I prefer the close ups you have done in the past as well.

You did catch the eyes well in #8:smashin:


Cheers Holo:smashin::smashin:

Really nice set. No. 8 is the outstanding shot for me. Well done.

#8 is the best of the lot for the eyes if nothing else. Your aperture was probably a bit wide though as the nose has lost focus. #9 could be a cracker if you could get some detail back in the eyes, maybe add a catchlight in for a really nice shot :smashin:

#8 is fantastic. That and #7 stand out for me.
