Very powerful and YES, upsetting photo. No wild animal should be caged.

I agree with your "trapped commentary" - hit me in the gut also. The stare says it all, yet I cant stop looking at. Such a mighty tribute though...

Behind The Lens

Location
A zoon in England
Time
Early evening I think
Lighting
The lighting was ambient
Equipment
Canon DSLR Zoom lens
Inspiration
The creatures eyes were just amazing....he looked so sad...spoilt my day aye the zoo actually.
Editing
The images was cropped a little and I dodged the catch lights in his eyes slightly to make them stand out more.
In my camera bag
I was at the zoo and there was a lot of walking involved, under these circumstances I take one camera body and a medium zoom lens...usually a 70-200mm on a full frame camera. I also carry a spare battery.
Feedback
A zoo is a great place for getting used to a camera or new equipment.
