This is my work monitor which is set to high contrast, so most pics don't look as good as they otherwise would. So this one looks a bit too contrasty; I would also say it's slightly over-sharpened.

What's even worse though is what looks like JPEG artifacts on the face. I'm guessing that the square-ish aspect ratio and the sharpened picture resulted in a large file size which forced you to save with a low JPEG quality setting to meet the size requirement. On this contrasty monitor, it kind of shows.

As a suggestion, maybe sharpen the tree less? It both kills your file size and distracts attention from your subject...

It is a cool shot and well lite and not no pixels showing. I really like all the trees around him and the snow. Very well focused.

Looks good on mine. Maybe a little smudgy around the monkey's face but that's probably related to 720 pixel limitations.

Nice capture and framing. May have preferred a little tighter crop to get some more details of the monkey. Lighting is great. Good Luck. 7.

I wish you were a little more close to the monkey. The trees to the right are very distracting., My eyes want to drift away from the subject, however, on another note, I think this is a great capture and find. Be very proud.
