4 syllables: under-rated! Agree with gloda that a high contrast bw would really suit this one.

Photo seems a tad flat, colors a little muted. Other than that a wonderful capture, well done!

What marvelous composition, dof, colors, expressive views. Good work and good luck and this piece. He reminds me of Salvadori Dalli.-9-

What a wonderful capture of a candid scene. I love the looks that they are giving each other - a silent communication is going on. My critique on this piece is you could have easily zoomed in or cropped it for a tighter focus on just the man and the monkey on his shoulder. Fill the frame with what you want the viewer to specifically take notice of so that the background does not distract. This is a great shot but it could be much better if the there was a tighter framing on the main subjects that does not include the surroundings.

Oh wow! So cool that you managed to capture this exact moment in time. I love how they are looking into each others eyes. The bold red colors really add to the photo. Well Done!

Almost passed this one by.... Good capture. It seems that there really is a connection between man and monkey, here.

I think this might have had more impact if you had zoomed in on their meeting gazes which is the great thing about this pic.....at the moment my eyes are pulled away to the raised hand.
