»  Popcorn Kid
A gorilla enjoying some healthy popcorn: Air popped with no salt or oils. No, those are not his teeth, they are white popcorns!

I almost threw this one away as you could not see the eyes (what I focus on) in the original (too dark). However, after using the dodge tool (set for midtones at 50%) and the sponge tool (set for saturate at 60%), I now have (in my humble opinion) a decent photo.

Shot RAW (digital negative) with a Canon EOS Digtal Rebel XTi, and Canon 70-200mm f/4.0L USM lens, a B&W UV MRC (Multi Reflective Coated) Filter attached.

My camera and lens were mounted on a Giottos MM 9180 5-Section Pro Monopod with a Giottos MH-1301 Pro Series II Ballhead with a MH-656 Arca Swiss Quick Release attached, using a remote shutter release (with mirror lockup) to avoid camera shake.

Aperture Priority, F-Stop: f/4.0, ISO Speed Rating: 100, Focal Length: 131.0mm. Image was manipulated using Adobe Photoshop CS2 with the Camera Raw v4.2 plug-in.

Note: This photo was shot within what I call the "sweet zone" of my lens: 70 to 135mm, f/4.0 to f/11.

Hope you like my "Popcorn Kid".

"Great image! I would like to use it in a composite blended work merging the face of friends / family members into your animal image to share with the person depicted and to include as a children's book illustration. Thank you for making your image available for use. "

"Great shot and I love the look of this guy. I wish I had your Giottos ballhead and I have been thinking about getting the 70-200mm zoom."
