Many thanks for all of your comments and thoughts on my recent uploads, and sorry for not being able to take as much time as I should to look at everybody's images, I will try to catch up later.

I have returned to a shot taken at the Cotswold Wildlife Park for this evening's upload, this is a yellow handed Gibbon (I think that's correct) looking lost in deep thought.

You may have noticed a slight change of style in some of my images of late, I have been trying out new ideas and compositions to vary from the usual portrait shots, so if you have any thoughts on it I would welcome them.

Many thanks

Phil

This works well Phil with the face enclosed by all that fur. A little brightening of the eyes might be good.

Fine shot Phil and very well portrayed. I love the facial expression. The primates always seem to have such an enigmatic visage. I find myself wondering what they are thinking.
Congrats on another well deserved award.

Fabulous close up. Detail is A1. The expression is superb, he looks lost in thought. I like the framing & crop it gives real impact.
