what a story telling perspective. Animal at the Zoo, caged, looks sad, have a ball to play with but he doesn't want it.. If I was the judge I would chose this a winner. After all the contest is about zoo and this image depicts the emotional side of a caged animal.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at the Oregon Zoo in Portland
Time
Shot this in the morning.
Lighting
Just natural light on this one on an overcast day. Shot through the glass.
Equipment
No flash, Olympus E-5 at 50mm, no polarizer, no tripod.
Inspiration
Loved the reflection of the polar bear and the added bonus of the ball being in the right spot made it the perfect shot
Editing
Not much processing aside from alot of sharpening, added some vibrance and a vignette.
In my camera bag
Currently I use an Olympus Omd-EM1 or the E-5 that was used here. Lenses are 50mm 2.0, 40-150mm 2.8, 12-40 mm 2.8,75mm 1.8 all Olympus lenses plus a 10-20 mm Sigma.
Feedback
Had to shoot this on my toes really stretching to get up above the people in front of me. Love shooting at a zoo on overcast day, big softbox for sure.
