Just to say, I love it, speaks volumes, and I hope he wasn't as miserable as he looks here. Monkeys have such expressive faces.

You did well to capture this through the mesh and bars, but without these, the image wouldn't have so much impact. I notice you have placed the monkey perfectly within the central frame of the mesh with light on the monkey only and a black background. Then, with the use of black-and-white, you have produced what, in my opinion, is an excellent image that has a message and a strong emotional pull, accentuated by the sad look on its face. An image that evokes strong emotions, to my mind, is a good one.

Very emotive shot.
