Crawled out of bed around 9am this morning Yawnnnnn! after not getting to bed till around 3am....was it New Years by any chance? lol.
Sat at comp with a nice hot brew and recovering my senses, I started looking over some old archives from `last! year. I found this I had ready to upload some time ago but got overlooked somehow.
Thank you all for all your comments and encouragement over the past year. EPZ and you have helped me enormously with my photography.
Happy New Year to you all.
Looking forward to perhaps meeting up with some of you at the NEC in February.
Thanks for looking.
Chris
P.S. View large is a must!!

Excellent work, well done. Maybe leave a tad more space on the left for old monkey face to look into?

The detail, lighting and golden tones on the monkey are spot on. Maybe try to capture the monkey head on. Never the less it is a cracking shot!

The larger image is definately worth a look,

Mike

Fantasic image Chris, even more so when viewed large.
Love the lighting on his face.
Looks as if he had his hair combed especially for this shot, there's so much detail there.
