Hi Victor

An interesting posting of these two Macaques comforting each other. In the daily life
of primates this is a very important part of troop behaviour. I like how you captured
the image while the monkeys sat on top of a mount which rendered the distant BG
totally OOF. This ensured that the subjects stand out in the frame. The details are
clear and sharp and the colours have a lovely natural tone.

Well done and TFS.

Hi Victor,
Fine timing and good framing on this primate shot. It can be particularly difficult incorporate a distant backdrop with primates and this shot is a great example of this done right. Technicalities aside, you capture a feeling of emotion as well. Kudos!

Hello Victor,
Lovely scene in great sharpness and details. Excellent composition, POV and DOF. Beautiful natural colours. The BG is splendid in this OOF colours and contrast.

Hello Victor,

Very special and very great timing.
This beautiful moment, with successful shooting technique is striking. TFS


Really a great shot. Touche - especially for me who is forlorn in a faraway place. The picture is sharp and the amount of light is also soothing.

Keep posting.


Touching scene Victor, now this is true love!
Let's hope mankind can do as well, there are some very trying times directly ahead in our troubled world.."All you need is love" :)
Best wishes my friend.

Hi Victor,
Beautifully captured intimate moment, the real "outdoors love". :) Excellent composition and usage of available lights. The oof background isolates the monkeys very well. Great POV also, and being exact great everything - a fabulous photo, Victor, which You should be proud of. Congrats and tfs.
Have a nice weekend, László
