I thought I would get ahead of myself for week #18 and post at the beginning of the week rather than the end.

Sunday I addended a benefit for a local DJ that recently past. I felt I needed to get out while there may be a photo opportunity of my interests. I know some or most may not care or like the results of a fisheye lens. There are only certain times or I should say certain composed images that have much of an impact, so I don't use it often, but it's there when I need or want to use it. I felt this image fell in the range of effectiveness. Yes, no? It's all an opinion and understandable. What is your opinion?
Dave
Fisheye street! Very cool Dave. And yes, the fisheye adds drama and interest. Careful focus and deliberate placement of the most severe area of the effect keeps it from looking crazy the way most fisheye shots of people do.


I may never master this lens, but I will have some fun trying. Fisheye street may be a new genre for me? I do realize the fisheye is not for every image, but I will continue to look for possibilities.

For week #19, I took the opportunity to visit the Cincinnati Zoo. My first visit in almost 4 of years and I was off to my favorite exhibit .... the Gorillas, only to walk away with some disappointment because only one Gorilla was on display and was not very cooperative. He would not come completely out into the open. No Gorilla photos today, but maybe next visit because I have to get my moneys worth out of the new seasons pass. I didn't walk away empty handed though. I was able to capture a few of the Rhino's. The first two images are of the same, an Indian Rhino, while the third image is of a different Rhino. A black Rhino nursing the almost year old calf, which if you will notice has two horns verses the one horn from the Indian Rhino.

Although, I do have some gorilla images from my 2014 visit and posted to https://www.flickr.com/photos/35722922@ ... 695051504/

These are really nice. It's very cool to turn zoo animals into artistic creations, as you did here. The second is my favorite. Terrific detail and tonalities.

Thanks Minnie, so much fun attending the zoo. One day soon, I will visit and focus on street photography rather than the animals. Maybe capturing the reactions/expressions of kids and/or parents viewing their favorite animal etc.

One of the most powerful animal portraits I've seen was shot by a photo friend in a zoo in Belgium, of elephants in their exhibit space with one outside and one inside the barred gate of their enclosure, touching trunks. It was named "Visitation Day".

Really like this one, Dave, for its mood and mystery. Wonderful texture, tones -- especially like the "flatness" and calm of the image since it seems to suit the scene. Well caught. Matt

Dave, your Rhino number three has me wondering why I am trying to play with color when I should be learning black and white.

I would love to see the photo of the elephants. I can imagine it to have a huge impact and I appreciate you mentioning it for the fact at most times I am dumb founded only to let my visions slip between the ears and as a result walk away empty handed.
