[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I went recently to West Sumatera Province - Indonesia. One place that I visited was Bukit Tinggi, about 2.5 hrs from Padang city. It is a nice place with cold weather. One of tourist objects there that is famous is called "Ngarai Sianok", a little canyon that located inside the city. One of the creatures that live there are the wild monkeys. Here I took a shot of the mother monkey with her babe, I was lucky that she smiled to the camera when I pressed the shutter, or at least she looked like smiling or did I say to her : "Say cheese!" and click!

Warm regards,

That is super, Ari.
The scene of mother and child is precious.
The mother looks like she is actually smiling. : )
The POV is great, showing both with lots of facial details in sharp focus and good exposure.
Fantastic composition. I like it a lot.
TFS. : )

amazing baby, TFS Ori

Hai Mas Ari,
Very nicely capturing these monkeys: mother and her baby. DoF was great, well focused, great sharpness, and nice blurry BG.
Ini oleh-oleh perjalanan kemarin ya?
Excellent shot.

Hello Ari,
I think that the little one probably prefers to say: "Milk!" :DD
Very cute and well composed picture.

Tfs, all the best,
