The idea behind this photo was to capture two gorillas exhibiting the exact same behavior. One in focus, and one slightly blurred. Feeding time provided that opportunity.

Submitted: Wednesday, 17th July, 2013 04:32 (GMT)
Taken: Friday, 7th September, 2012
Focal length: 285 mm
Shutter speed: 1/125 sec
Aperture: F13
ISO: 6400
Notes: Image stabilization was important as I didn't want to shoot above 6400 ISO or any wider than F13. The image was converted to B&W in NIK and processed in LR4. Very modest + clarity on the foreground gorilla and heavy - clarity (-100) on everything else to achieve softer focus. This photo was taken through glass on an overcast day.
