One of the handsome Eurasian wolves at Tiergarten Weilburg stalking the camera a little bit :-) Guess he didn't see such a lens before *g*
This was my first visit at the zoo in Weilburg, and it was quite pleasant. At first, the enclosure looks a bit small and there's a lot of fencing everywhere because the enclosure can be separated... but in fact, there are good photography conditions. It's in the forest, but the lighting is quite good.

This photo, in my opinion, is a good example that the rule of thirds is sometimes not the best choice (unlike proclaimed by many photographers). For this subject, putting the wolf's head in the dead center is essential. The striking symmetry of the head and the piercing look simply work best in center. If I had had the chance to get even lower to the ground to take that photo, I could have centered it even more - in this case, I had to place the head a little lower than the vertical center so that the wolf's back doesn't get cut off.

I love the fact that this is tack sharp at 100%, which means the head alone is rougly 1800x1800 pixels. Gotta do something with that some day... guess it would work on a shirt *g*

Wie immer ein fantastisches Bild ^^.
Und die Idee mit dem T-shirt find ich garnicht so übel, um ehrlich zu sein ziemlich gut. Wäre nach dem Kalender vllt. der nächste kleine Schritt für etwas merchandise ^^

Danke :-)

Naja, das mit den Shirts würde ich aber eher nicht selbst aufziehen. T-Shirt Druck ist noch teurer als Kalender, und dann muss man diese noch in allen möglichen Größen vorhalten...

Vllt. könnte man das ja auf Anfrage machen. Aber das wird dann für den Käufer auch recht teuer. Naja, ls Grundidee isses schonmal nicht schlecht.
Aber ich bin schon froh wenn ich genug Geld beisammen habe wenn der Kalender rauskomm. ^^
