Ooooh yes! Our ancestors peering out at us mockingly.
I like the way the soft window arches echo the monkey's eyes. I think I'd prefer to crop off the part window at top right, just to simplify. But I really like this a lot, and covet it.

I think the composition is perfect as it is. The more space there is on the right, the more furtive the monkey looks.

Chris, that's gorgeous. I love everything about it, so won't gush in detail.
Wouldn't change a thing. Not a thing.


P.S. Curries.....plural? a window

Tell you what Malc, I've no head for small numbers especially in the kitchen and as much as I try to pare down the ingredients to suit just two people there's always enough for a banquet. You'd be welcome. Grin

Oooh, I love your heart award Brian. Thank you so much.
I feel a bit of a fraud really. It was only a passing snap, but I guess it was a lucky one.

Top banana Chris, I like the way this primate is peering around the corner at us and the shifty look he is giving the camera
