    Very harsh shadows on the animal because of the sun. Good focus there, but I think it would be good if the animal's eyes can be seen clearly.

    The feeling of freedom would be better conveyed if the shot was taken from the front of the orangutan rather than from the back.
    I think faces of animals in general are magical, and it's easier to draw the attention of the audience when the face and expressions are there.

    Perhaps you should've waited abit more for a shot of the face.

    Fun by Ivan Sim, on Flickr

    Actually I did waited and managed to get 1 with his expression and stare... not too sure if he notice me from that far. Maybe orang utan got good eyesight. The shot is quite badly done, Im not too sure how to get a good shot with strong backlight.
