hey lisa ..
i know i made a comment before .. but this really is the most amazing photograph ..
i had a look at the votes ..
OMG OMG .. can you believe it .. how on earth could anyone justify giving you a 3 or a 4 out'v 10 .. it blows my mind .. a 5 also is just plain ridiculous ..
i'm really feeling a great antipathy towards that type of voter .. i think there are quite a few out there who have major personality problems or are just totally insane ..

Geez... you've scored over 7.2 twice and STILL no love. What does it take to get a ribbon around here? ;-)

Lovely portrait you've captured, with great detail and expression. Congrats on the PB!

Oh my word Lisa 4th place!!!! Wooohooo

New personal best, third +7 score, and what is more important a great photo. Goodness you are on a roll at the moment

Love the sharpness of the shot and the expression that you have captured. For some reason I am generally not a big fan of orangutan's (great pun by the way) but even I have to say that this image is incredible

Good job buddy!!!!!!

lovely! I would get rid of this white stuff...
Looks like he is asking you: " And now what?"
love the composition. 10 for you

What a super expression and great detail.

Great. I would have cloned out the distracting white piece on his fur. Overall this shot will most likely be in the top 3.

Very nice. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2007 11:27:56 AM
nice capture, this would be so much better in advanced editing so you could clone out those blown out hairs
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2007 10:31:11 AM
great pose! You either got lucky, or your patience paid off. I love the details of the hair on his face. Are the eyes a little out of focus? That would be the most important part of the shot. Otherwise, great!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2007 03:51:14 AM
Very nice tones, sharpness and details. You got the eyes capture well done!
