[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
She is a famale of the Cebus Apella. As I said in the other post a big male could be 5 kg weight, but usually a young famale is 1,5-2 kg and a normal male 4 kg. The live in social group with a dominant male and a hierarchy. They are funny animals always in motion, with curiosity for everithing. In this shot she seems joking me...! It is possible!

Hi Tommasso
Very nice capture of this Brown capuchin monkey. She sure seems to be enjoying a good private joke about photographers.
The composition is good and the colours look quite natural. The DOF is fine showing nice detail however; (in my opinion) it is maybe a little bit over sharpened. This is one tool that should be applied very carefully and discreetly. The moment when an animals hair starts to show white streaks one should readjust to a lesser intensity. A relative good setting could be obtained when you set the 'Amount' to maximum, the 'Threshold' to zero, and then you can play with the 'Radius' between ±0.1-0.7 to get the optimum balance. The BG is also a little bit distracting with the pattern of the fencing showing. I realise this is always difficult in most zoo type environments and it takes a great deal of patience and careful selection to overcome this nit. The exposure was well handled.
TFS this nice photo with us.

A great pose! Excellent exposure with the nice saturated colors and very sharp detail. Great shot Tommaso!

Wonderful photo, composition and technically wise! Thanks for sharing - Xplorator Radu

She sure seems to have a wide grin on her face. The eyes too suggest that.
Great picture, Tommaso.

Hello Tommaso,
Lovely shot! The monkey really looks as if it was laughing though on the other hand it looks a bit as if it was eating something. Great details, very nice framing and POV.
