Finally had time to tweak some of the shots taken at Whipsnade Zoo with the K-7, now that I have calmed down a bit!

Not trying to show any features of the camera off here, just one of my favourites from the day, so please criticise the photography as much as you like, I won't blame the camera honest!

I really like this shot, it's the angles of the deers heads.
The colours are great and the the DOF is excellent.

There's one thing that I dont like and that's the rectangular shape above C66's ear. I know it's not much but I find it quite off putting.

What a great picture! I like the "ABBA-esque" pose, too.

That's a great picture!
I know some people would frown upon this, but I would clone out the random splodges top-left and possibly the meat market tabs too. (depends on the use for the image)
Well worth the effort

I like it!! The juxtaposition of the deer heads is perfect!
