He looks kind of sad I think. What kind of monkey is he?
I would love to have seen him a little more up close.
Um macaco muito timido esta todo encolhido uma maravilha de foto muito boa mesmo meus parabéns.
No it's not cheating, this is still ok. You might wanna try to get a closer shot. Would make it more interesting! And i think the lighting is a little dark. You have 70-300mm lens so you can afford to get closer (I can't see your shooting data so i don't know what was your focal length for this shot), and becareful of focus.. this looks slightly soft.
An interesting animal though. Would like to know some info about him :)
