One of those Days

One of those Days

Another from the archives. This one taken in March 2009 at the Melbourne Zoological Gardens, featuring the same Orangutan as the one in this shot.

In this frame, he looks somewhat forlorn and “over it”.

Pre-processing (lighting) in LightRoom, bleach bypass and vignette in PhotoShop with selective dodge/burn and curves/levels. A fair amount of sharpening was added to crystallize the eyes and bring out the facial detail.


  • Aperture: ƒ/6.3
  • Camera: NIKON D2X
  • Taken: 28 February, 2009
  • Focal length: 500mm
