Hi Tom,

A nice monkey with a great expression,well captured with good color and detail,tfs


Fantastic photo ! Great composition... super use of DOF to accentuate and isolate the subject. Beautiful, natural colors with outstanding detail. Those eyes tell it all.

Great job, TFS, Mish

Hi Tom

Great shot - the detail in the eyes is marvellous. Great POV too.


Hi Tom.
Stunning detail in this image. Pin sharp where needed with excellent detail and colour.
You caught him with a very interested look at something.

Wonderful and fascinating portrait. Great expression and excellent exposure used to show the little one!


beautiful pic with good BG

I love the POV on this one. You're right at face level, which makes it more human somehow. His expression is dead on too -- looking away from the camera. I can't really tell what the background is (grass?), but whatever it is, the darker strokes echo the monkey's fur nicely. Great composition overall! Thanks for posting it!

Hi Tom,
What an expression!! A stunning portrait shot with immaculate sharpness and clear details. The intensity of the eyes are marvellously captured and set against the light BG it stands out well. Perfect lighting and a great POV. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hello Tom, lovely image. Great focus on the eyes and nice catchlights - the fur is amazing. The whole picture makes me think of a fuzzy and fragile old man. Very good work.

Very beautiful portrait with lovely clear eyes and wonderful details in the hairy fur.
Great facial expression.

Hello Tom,
Wonderful portrait of this primate in deep thought, Fantastic camera work allaround, thanks Tom.

Superb portrait, Tom.

A good one, if the the cutting of the crown by the upper frame is not counted.

Wow! Excellent shot. The light olive green bg makes the face very prominent. The white hairs surrounding the face along with the facial expression and red lively eys give the feeling of a wise old man. Good composition and pov. The lighting is also good. Thanks for sharing.
