[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I got this little monkey posing for me at Nandi Hills. I used 105mm lens. This is best place to get monkey pictures. The environement is natural and they are
co-operative. However you need to maintain certain distance and you need to be alert, as they will snatch away anything. We enjoyed taking monkey pictures, I will post some more picture later! This picture is actual frame as shot, I have not cropped.
with best regards.vab.

This monkey seems to be contemplating...perhaps wondering if he can steal your camera? This is a fun pose because he does appear to be thinking something over, perhaps something that he shouldn't be doing. The details are nailed, the POV wonderful, and the dof is perfect. The subject is in focus and my eye is drawn right to the subject - as it should be.

HI Amar,
would like to say that it's running for top honours!!

Great Composition & lighting.
