Gorilla's Stare by Zx30 Gorilla's Stare by Zx30
The image of this fellow was captured on a recent trip to Disney. It was a marvel to observe him from so close as he sat around and also ate for a bit. I'll admit I was a bit nervous as there was no cage surrounding the gentle giant. For a few moments he sat and his eyes scanned the survey and then towards the crowd I was trapped in. In an instant, I caught him looking directly at me and I snapped the shot. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you my favorite photograph from my Disney Trip.

EDIT 12/9/2012
Oh wow! A DD! =]. I thought I'd never see the day. Thank you so much!

This guy looks really...MANLY. Seductive, I don't know? But what a sexy glare XD... Even though he's a gorilla, he's such a pimp!

But personally I would like to see a version without the added light beams... I dunno I just...

I think it would look better that way since there'd be more focus in the middle...the light beams look a little distracting imo~

There was no cage around him?

Sort of. It's like a tiny fence any one could get over...but there's a large ditch around the whole thing.

And thank you! =]

Oh, okay! They have that here at the Toronto Zoo, but only around hoofstock and those sorts of animals. That must be awesome for photographs!

Did you photoshop the light beams?

Zx30 Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012  Student Photographer
Hope I don't spoil the magic, but yes I did :p. I've never had great luck capturing beams of light through photography, so sometimes I add them very subtly. This is one of my favorite times adding beams of light though. =]

Oh, no you didn't. (: I was just wondering because they seemed for perfectly shaped. It's a lovely shot with or without them.
