It's so human-like... I bet you've already had this kind of comment. But that's what I think of.

Gorillas do have some great expressions, to me it seems their looks say "what are you looking at". Great shot!

Love the level of detail in the gorilla's coat.

You can walk through the gorilla habitat in the Bronx Zoo in New York. There is a pathway with plexiglass on either side. The gorillas often come up to the wall and watch people go through. They probably think we were the exhibit. I stared into a gorilla's eye two inches from my own. It was clearly contemplating this human that was staring at it. Wonder what it was thinking.

Excellent gorilla portrait! I'd love to see this one cropped tighter so that the influence of man was not so evident--what would it look like cropping to exclude the rope and some of the light background to the left of the gorilla? Just a thought!

What i like about this is the expression. But also the fact that you can see his eyes unlike other gorilla pictures. Most of the ones I saw usualy have shadow over there or are to far from the face to actually notice the humanity in his eyes. amazingly great work from your part

:nod: speaking of which, a long time ago we went on a school trip, and the guys (girls aren't as brave and imaganative at that age, they are into makeup :shrug: ) well, anyway, the guys were teasing a gorrila and everything the guys did the gorrilla copied, and one guy stood up and tapped the glass.. the gorrilla stood up, ran up to him and started beating the glass.. everyone ran out.. :sprint:
