Interesting pose for that animal. Good capture.

Well caught. Beautiful study, you can see every hair on the ape, & every blade of grass in sharp detail. You've also managed not to lose the apes face in the shadow, still lots of detail.

If I may just add a critique, it would be that you need to straighten the shot up. The lines are leaning ever so slightly to the right.

Personally I'd lose a bit of the stripey background too. Please don't lose any of the width though, as I love this type of shot. You captured not only your subject, but it's environment, & by doing so, show it in context. I don't think a "widescreen" format would detract from the subject.

Just so's I'm not ending on a negative comment, & cos I want you to know, you got my vote!

Lovely capture Fran...agree with Davey though...if this was mine I'd probably letterbox the image, to give the animal a bit more impact.

it certainly looks all arms & legs, I wonder what it thinks of it's reflection in the pool?

Watcha Fran,
well, nice little starting page, the zoo pics are fine, especially that mandarin, but I love, Waiting for the Tide; it's about time we saw some more stuff from you.

Perhaps looking at his reflection . If it were mine I would feel inclined to chop some off the uninteresting background .

She seems to be mesmerised by her reflection in the water. Very constructive critique by Dav Griffo. Sylvia

Good details and tones in this Fran, do agree about changing the back ground though.
