    That's nice and sharp!
    A good photograph is knowing where to stand.

    Looks like Taxidermy, Don. Field Museum, perhaps?

    Nah, Cabela's in Hoffman Estates, IL.

    Good eye ... the subject is dead. It was a different kind of photography, for sure. Kind of like having the "TIME STOP" function. LOL

    This one was even weirder ...

    I have noted that the "animals" lack a natural-looking "moistness" about them. Also, the lack of respiration is a bit "stuffy."

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    It's the HDR treatment I think.

    Here is one from the local zoo. It is a small zoo and all the animals are in fenced in areas and it is hard to get any good shots without shooting through a fence. The bear cage had a moat around it so there was no fence.

    The fort worth zoo had a moat around the lions and tigers. The Toronto (Canada) zoo had nearly everything behind a cage/fence so it was quite difficult.

    That's a nice shot, not over processed and composed well. (Maybe would've taken a hair off the top to make give it equal room on top and bottom).

    Did you try and portrait oriented shots?

    I was looking for more detail in the fur and the muzzle, which was a bit washed out by the light through the skylight
