    Was really tempted to put our initials on here... couldn't find much room though :o(

    Taken at a day trip to the Perth Zoo - it's two separate photos, just kinda merged in a diptych

      You can't even tell it's been merged - so masterful is your PP skill!

      Yay for more photos from tUP!

      This shot, wow how very damn cool.
      Your photos always look to me like I've stepped onto the set of a movie; breath-taking.

      Very tribal looking.

      Love it Shem, where have you been for so long?

      Thanks all - it's good to be 'back' so to speak

      Have to admit I haven't really picked up the old 30D in a while - I guess with the new job, swimming training, looking after my beloved wife etc it all becomes too much.. hahahaha...

      2008 is about priorities - and being creative! So I endeavour to post pics, make plenty of comments and generally be a FlickR whore once again

      And I'll say thanks to each one of you personally, because you're all so fab !

      @Mu - thanks for the kind words.. .now if only I can draw like you (no, make that 1/8 as good as you)
      @Brett - cheers!, and yes you nailed it re: location. I guess ppl go to the zoo all the time, and try and shoot animals from about 10 metres back @ 18mm - it's good to try and seek out the (sometimes) different things we see
      @Seng - thanks buddy - the weird thing is I really wanted this to work as a diptych, then realised it kinda looked merged without really trying. When you're on a good thing.... :o)
      @Mon - Yep, back for sure. You'll see some different stuff from me this year - new focus
      @Scotty - Thank-you champ! I'm really humbled by your comments - hope to catch up with you soon and crack open a few nice cold Asahi's
      @Apdz07- thank-you! Never met you before, but the fact that you even stumbled upon this pic and took time out to comment is very nice of you. I really appreciate it ! :o)
      @Marky - I admit I haven't posted much in a while - see the top of my comment for a rather poor explanation. Hope to catch up with you and Mon soon - Mac nerds unite! :o)

      This is a fantastic shot - It jumped of the pool at me! I always think taking this shot of these when I walk past but never do! Your processing is really great, I have been attempting to get this kind of clarity and cool contrast with the light and shadows. Any tips?

      Thanks Louise! :o)

      @Meg - a lot of my workflow lately has been done with Adobe Camera RAW. Just bump up the highlights and shadows a fair bit (also can be done with curves) then experiment with colour balance (on an adjustment layer). Increase the Cyan and Green for the desired effect.

      interesting subject and nice touch!! :)

      I can almost hear the music... the diptych is so subtle, both images have a flowing rhythm between them. Greatly done!

      @snenigma. look towards the middle of the photos towards the deep black. you can see the seam.
