[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This vervet monkey was feeding with the rest of it's troop. They are very cocky and come very close, but can be very aggressive, and tourists often end up being bitten because they go to close to the "cute" wild animals.

I love the shadows in his eye created by the facial hair. I wish there was a bit more light on his right cheek.

HI Oscar,
Nice portrait of this vervet monkey, the unidirectional light has enhanced details & added a lot of charector to the image but has also insured that the right eye is in darkness, maybe you can remedy that by using the shadow & highlight tool.The shadow of hair in the eye is cool.The green OOF background makes a lovely backdrop.

Dear Oscar,

The lighting is excellent.
