First upload for several weeks. As a general rule I don't like taking images of captive creatures. Anyway, probably no more than a glorified holiday snap.

You do yourself a grave injustice.

I'm not sure what treatment you gave it, but this actually looks like a painting. Beautifully done.

Very intricate piece of work and full of emotion.
Terrific feat!

A lovely image. Great treatment but makes me sad looking at that gorilla. And that rock upper left looks like a face but one that has passed on. A very sad and sorrowful image, to me anyway.........Sandy

Hardly a snapshot! This is great, love the processing but the image does bring the sadness of the animal out, really well. The capture is amazing - to me it looks like the monkey is almost mimicing the formation of the rock and the greenery.
