bonjour Annick
superbe portrait de ce singe, la netteté permet d'avoir des détails extraordinairement fins. Ces yeux sont très expessifs, il semble si triste.

Hi Annick.
Once more amazing portrait of the animal. I think it is really outstanding. Pose of the monkey, cropping and framing of the image are classic. Of course (for use) quality of the picture is the best. I must mark the beautifulness of the BG too. Its wonderful and by colours is suitably for this animal perfectly. My greetings and best wishes.

Hi Annick,
amazing shot, the eyes are beautiful, excellent work, thanks.
