I assume this was through glass, and as such, its very good. Its an unusual monkey, which makes it all the more interesting.

Im sure you would have liked to get the front foot in the shot, but its hard to remember this in the spur of the moment.

As a suggestion, Ive loaded a mod that shows how a composition including the foot, and cropped a bit to the animal to further from the right could look, and its always easier to do this in the camera that in Photoshop, where I copied his other foot, - to he now has two right feet, as I forgot yo switch it horizontally.

It has a slight reddish tone which Ice reduced, and I sharpened a little also, while adding a more open frame.

Its a suggestion for the future, and the more you shoot, the more likely you are to remember composition, so keep shooting.

Hope this is helpful,

Regards


Willie

You have the eyes nice and sharp, Emma, and the monkey is looking at you, which is a bonus. There isn't much you can do about the background, but I wonder if you could have avoided the rock in the bottom left. If it weren't in sharp focus, it would be less of a distraction, so maybe applying some blur to it would help. You did well shooting through glass, I see little sign of this. I like the shot because it shows no sign of captivity, it could well have been taken in the open.
