Hey Ben, didn't I see this guy on the Muppets? This has got to be the best shot of a Proboscis Monkey I have seen. You have amazing detail and colour on this guy.

It's a wonderful shot of Mr. Big Nose. You have amazing detail and colors on this guy.
Is this a self-portrait after they reduced the size of your nose by half (Chuckle)? Hahaha, you should have realised before you posted this shot that you are going to be open for a lot of cheap shots or wise cracks coming your way.
It sure is a great shot of this nosy feller. The composition is good, the colours are great, the details are fine, the BG is well OOF and worked well, and the exposure was very well done.
Good work and TFS.

An extraordinary portrait of this monkey!
The 3/4 pose you capture is so good in terms of their face appreaciation, and specially the size of their nose.
Good POV, details, focus, and color saturation.
Congratulations, thanks for share and best regards,

This is a great capture!
I just realized that i haven't see nthis species on TN eversince i've joined...so this is quite a unique post :)
This portrait is very nice and it shows the features on this interesing proboscis monkey...as if you could avoid the nose :))) (just plying)
The POV is excellent, the DOF is really great, blurring the BG very neatly and the pose and look in its eyes is exceptional.
Very well done!
Bravo and TFS

I've seen these monkeys high up in the trees on Borneo and I suppose that's where you found it? They are such clumsy animals with their big bellies but, even so, great at swinging about high up in the canopy. Wonderful close-up, great details and beautiful colours.
TFS and regards, Ulla

What a lovely shot of charming animal you have shared. Excellent portrait work. Amazing pose and POV. Reflection of the mood and expression of the face are wonderful. Colours and details of the animal, blurriness and impression of the BG are superb too. Bravo, excellent job.

what an interesting shot, I never seen such an monkey before... at first I thought you pulling our leg and did a nice phototrick, but reading your notes made things clear.
The photo is wonderful, you realy chose the right POV to show off the large nose, and other wonderful details of this monkey. Colors, composition and sharpness are great.

here is wonderful portrait photo of a nice nasalis. composition, point of view, background, colours, sharpness, details and framing are great
This is a very interesting specie that I didn’t see often. Except in "Explorator's" pictures. I think that those guys don't really look nice but it our own human perception and nothing else... This is a nice capture with good POV and composition. I tried a little WS to see if it can improve sharpness a bit which is not bad at the start though. Well done with interesting notes. Thanks

A rather dapper looking specimen Ben! From what your note said, I'd imagine this one keeps all the females happy.
Excellent post! Thanks!

interesting - "The female Proboscis Monkey prefers big-nosed male" - so it´s true, the bigger the nose the bigger the xxx? *gg*
excellent and funny portrait, ben! :-)
perfectly composed with enough space on the left for him to look to,
wonderful colors, especially the brown toned fur is nice,
and of course amazing details - the BIG nose.
well seen & captured, thor.
