1st time I manage to get a reasonably good shot of the mandrill with nice even soft lighting. Wish he was doing something more exciting , but he was just sitting there enjoying his sugarcane snack.

No prediction, I just do not want the Brown !!

The lighting and processing on this are excellent, a shame it didn't place higher.

Probably the best photograph of a mandrill I've seen. And I've tried to get some, with little success. Very well composed, lit and edited. 8

Nice portrait. You probably did right not to sharpen the fur too much. 8

EXCELLENT colors and focus but the crop makes the left side seem a bit chopped off. :~)
