Have a feeling that i'm going to get marked down for the close crop and reflection top right. Unfortunately i didnt have a chance to move to a better spot as this shot was only there for 1/8th of a second (full speed burst of baby getting picked up at 8fps).

I'm having a lot of trouble getting correct exposure on Orangutans due to their fur colour/tone. I would love some suggestions on how to improve it without having to do heavy post.

I had this one pegged for the blue. Absolutely beautiful shot. Lovely tones, soft colors, when dealing with animals and their settings, whether in nature or in the zoo, things like the reflections can easily be forgiven if you get the right shot. -10- from me!

The emotion is very well capture, but the top right is distracting and balance in the scene/composition is lacking.

i love the intensity we feel in mom's touch - i am just not sure about the crop (or lack of crop) here

love the use of thirds in this shot. wish the other 2/3s wasn't a wall, though. it looks like they are looking lovingly into each others eyes! you are so lucky to have caught such a shot!

there seems to be some type of glare in the top right hand corner; other than that a very nice photo :-)
