[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another shot of the monkey that I took, as a different POV from my first post. This was taken in Manuel Antonio National Park.

This is a white faced monkey. This is the smallest of the three main types of monkey found in Costa Rica. Fully grown this monkey reaches a whopping 5 kilos (11 pounds). Manuel Antonio National Park is the only place in the world that you can find the squirrel monkey, unfotunately we did not catch even a glimpse. :(

A very good POV of this white-faced monkey, Anna. The focus is a tad soft on this one, but the light is very good. We did not see any of these at Manuel Antonio, but we did see lots of squirrel monkeys. Every evening at the same time, a whole troop of them would pass through our room window, jumping from tree to tree with amazing agility. They moved too fast for me to get any decent shots though. : (

I like this one Anna, the POV and catch light in the eye is spot on, it does look a little soft of focus.I wonder if you have tried applying any form of sharpening to it?
I notice that you do not inclued the shooting data, if you can not rember it, you will find it attached to the image in the form of an Exif file. If you use Photo shop to manipulate the image, this is veiwable in the File Browser as the Mata Data. The other way of making sure the image keeps it's data is to use Save As instead of save to web, it is not as flexable in the file adjustment to keep the file size below the trek limit of 200k you ususally end up with a file size of between 150 -175k instead of the possible 198k with save to web.But has the great advantage of keeping the Exif file attached to the original image and will automaticall fill in most of the shooting data and the dates.
hope this is of some use TFS yours Robert

Ps. I love the pun in the title ;0))))))))
