Monkey Business!!

By frogsrcool
Have altered this quite a bit - took ages! Changed to Sepia, lots of layers to get the border and the parts feeding into frame. Was quite pleased with the result

Crit very welcome

Ahhhhhh cracking! Love the toning - looks great. You should be very pleased with this. The only minor niggle is the elbow looks a little hard-edged.
really like it, he's so cute

Great shot, excelent in B/W, brilliant subject especially with the light glinting in his eyes, and the frame works well too.

This was well worth all your efforts, it's made a good picture for your wall!
The only slight problem is the bit spilling out over the frame, (which I love) but I think you need to use the rubber tool to get rid of the fringing, then it will be perfect!
Thank you all for your encouraging photos.

I did try using the 'smudge tool' for the edges of the arm going into the frame, but thought it looked too false. Lauren, what do you suggest using instead. Marian - what is 'fringing' - is it the hard edge?

Might play with this a bit more to get it a bit better

What a perfect image to have coming out of the frame like this. The tones work really well.

As already said above the hard edge of the elbow needs softening. I'm not the best one to offer advice on this but I think the paleness of the frame, although a nice tone, has made your job harder because it is such a contrast. The edge of the paler branch at the top blends much more easily.

Definitely worth working on! Lovely shot.
