What a cool dude relaxing on the cool rocks.A lovely portrait with excelent detail and clarity.I like his pose and the way you have caught him looking slightly away....he looks almost human this way.Well done in handling the low light and difficult colour of black.Have a great day!

Something fascinating is in faces of Chimpanzees and you captured it in perfect way. Eyes, face, pose - I like them very much. Quality is also good and black frame made great composition with black animal.

This is a great pose you capture!
A very well composed image, excellent details are captured...
Fine composition with good lines!
A lovely soulful capture of this beautiful beast. I was just wondering, we always tend to say that certain primates look human-like or their actions seem human-like (anyway we are also classed as primates in zoological terms), but is that correct to say so? Isn’t it rather a case that some humans look or behave worst than primates? I’m sure most primates would see it as an insult to know that they look human-like. After all we are deemed to be ‘the great ape’, but we are also the greedy ape who are slowly-but-surely destroying this wonderful planet of ours all for the sake of financial or monetary gains.
Enough about morals and all those heavy stuff. Let’s talk photography. This guy sure looks bored to tears or maybe he’s just working on a plan and strategy to go and annoy the heck out of one of his fellow cell mates for a little bit of distraction or just to liven up the day. He is very photogenic though and gave you an excellent pose. We all know how difficult it is to photograph such a pitch black subject and still retain good contrasts while also taking care that the subject don’t get lost in such a dark BG, but I really think you did an excellent job here.
Well done and TFS.
PS. To be quite frank with you, I have my doubts about your border though.

You use your perfect macro lens excellently. I like apply my one as common fixed lens too. Its quality is outstanding. As a result your picture is done excellently. Great sharpness, wonderful natural colours. I also like your cropping, framing and presentation of this nice animal. My best wishes and TFS.

Nice zoo shot, Ben. A great job with a natural looking pose. What's even more impressive is the level of detail on his dark face.

Great shot! The relaxed posture of the chimpanzee, the diagonal compsoition, all look very photogenic. Thanks for sharing.
