Hello all, This week's challenge is a shot I took over the summer at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo outside of Colorado Springs. It was taken, in jpeg mode, through the plexi-glass enclosure with my Panasonic Lumix FZ200 at full zoom. It's presented here exactly as it came out of the camera. The challenge for the participants is to produce your best portrait of this fella. I came across this article on photo.net a few weeks ago that shows what I think is a pretty amazing transformation of a basic zoo shot: http://www.photo.net/learn/digital-photography-workflow/advanced-photoshop-tutorials/artistic-animals/ Try to fight the urge to add extra objects to the frame, and just work with what's there. I've worked it myself, but don't know that I really like what I've done, so I'm anxious to see other renditions. Most of all, have fun.
