I had a debt with you: I should have written about my last picture in Flickr: "Animal Ecstasy".
In the above picture we can see a group of baboons enjoy with their sexuality.
Compositionally, we can view a diagonal line drawn by the female baboon. This primate has a very baroque pose, twisting her body.
This picture was taken in the Zoo-Aquarium of Madrid, one of the most important zoos in Spain.
This picture was taken in my last visit to the Zoo-Aquarium of Madrid.
I went for take pictures of several animals, but the most expressive were the baboons.
This picture was taken with a telephoto lens (the animals usually are very far). I used a 300mm lens with aperture of f/11 (not too much closed or open, with 300mm it allows a blurred background with a focused subject).
I was sunny and the animals usually are not stopped, so I shot in fast way (1/125 seconds).

The digital post-processing is maybe too much aggressive. It includes HDR techniques and a lot of layers randomly mixed.
There are three main versions of this picture: the natural version, without post-processing:
The monochrome version, in sepia tones:
The HDR version:
I'm not very happy with this picture. The pose of the baboon is great, but the pictures is over-processed and the colours are not too much good.
