[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This monkey was agitated that it's lunch on a mango is disturbed by me. It can be really aggressive as it charged towards me a couple of times, and stopping only a few feet from where i was shooting it.

The intense stare this monkey focused on you is very effective in this image. That bright mango really perks up this image full of darker tones. The sharpness and exposure on him is super. I do feel that the OOF light wall and the high contrast frame robs the image of some impact. I tried a workshop.

hello Wei

I like the strong color tone of this shot, the BG somehow enhances the monkey's body color. The mango color stands out very effectively to add another tone. Very well focus sharpness and saturation and really a fine portrait shot.

I marked WS as useful for reasons given. I would be interested to know how it looks if you do a tilt-shift technique including the blur white wall below, just for fun of it.
