[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Macaque on the ledge of a hinduist temple at Uluwatu, the bacground of the cliffs makes a dramatic stage for this little but extremely bold and cunning thief. Somehow Iimagine a very similar setting and habits of the macaques at the rock of Gibraltar.

Another awesome shot dude.
How precarious is the temple on the edge of the cliff?
Does it look like erosion is going to take it out someday?
Nat Geog quality again.

Buna Radu,
In primul rand vreu sa-ti multumesc de comentariile facuta. Intr-adevar Torres del Paine este ceva fantastic.Dupa aproape 1 luna petrecuta in parc mi-a fost tare greu sa ma despart de minunatiile din acest colt de lume. Aici gasesti mai multe imagini din parc: http://www.pbase.com/mirceacostina_13/torres_del_paine_national_park

In legatura cu imaginea de fata ,peisajul din spatele maimutei este spectaculos. Expresia animalului tare interesanta, parca ar cauta cu privirea ceva ce se ascunde in hau.Oricum o imagine adevarata de wildlife.
Felicitari pt. intreaga ta munca !


Salut Radu,

Excellent! A very good subject and great location! A shame you were not a few steps further right to capture the Macaque's profile against the sea and looking at the great scenery.
In the actual context I accept this composition although I'm not a big fan of central subjects. But I can't improve it without cropping from the wonderful background. The well controlled exposure rendered great details in the foreground. The golden colors make the picture look as it was taken before sunset. Well done! Thanks!

With Friendly Regards,

Hi Radu

Impressive creativity, with the beautiful freefall in the BG! Great backlight on the monkey.
