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.

|Taken:||Friday, 7th September, 2012|
|Focal length:||285 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1/125 sec|
|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.|
