After your customary bird pictures, it is a pleasant surprise to see a monkey picture from you, JP.
Great portrait!
The expression on the ape's face is quite interesting.
TFS and regards.

It is a Patas monkey (Erythrocebus patas). Focus is a tad shallow.

Hi Jean-Paul.
Very nice portrait of this monkey.Very impressive close-up.I like colors and details in his face,nice pose too.Very good blurry BG with pretty colors.I've done Workshop - only a little added luminosity to eyes,for better contact.Well done,thanks for sharing.
Best greetings Milos.

Hi Jeanpaul, wonderful portrait with splendid expression, lovely colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Very good portrait Jeanpaul. Great colour and composition.
A little light in eyes is absent. Very pure and sharp shot. I really love this pic, great photo. Well done. tfs. Stev

Il a l'air triste en effet Jean-Paul... Il a ce regard tellement humain. C'est un très beau portrait qui transmet un émotion certaine. Les couleurs pastelles, la prise de vue et l'exposition sont superbes et j'aime bien cette profondeur de champs avec cet accent sur ses yeux, bravo!
PS, je ne peux pas aider avec l'identification, désolée :)

Salut JeanPaul,
A portrait with a lot of visual impact!
I like so much your POV and the close approach to the subject.
The stare of the animal is impressive, it takes a lot of time to look at their eyes and going through.
I like the uncommon blue-green hue of the background got.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

bonjour jeanpaul
très belle photo, je pense que c'es un Macaque mais je n'en suis pas très certaine
bien à toi

Hello JP,
Poor guy, he loooks like a bit confused, maybe he doesn't like to have pictures taken?
Superb details in that little face!

Bonjour Jeanpaul!
Very beautiful portrait full of tender colors, I love his face expression and focus point on it, great details and sharpness!

Perfecta nitidez Jeanpaul.
Bonitos colores muy bien contrastados.
Saludos amigo, JL.

Hi Jeanpaul , You have infused, or rather should I say captured the personality of this monkey in its true essense. Very good work here. Liked it.

Technically everything is good.

Warm regards, Kiran.

Bonjour jean-Paul !
C'est vrai au'il a l'air triste ce singe... Mais c'est une très belle image, avec d'excellents détails, de belles couleurs (celles du BG sont assez étonnantes) et une très belle composition. Félicitations !

JP, this one simply jumped out at me! The expression is priceless. The compo is great. Excellent portrait.
I rather prefer the darker eyes. Tfs, J.

Bonjour Jean-Paul,

Une belle image de ce singe qui n'a pas l'air content. La photo a une bonne composition, netteté et de jolies couleurs. Bonne journée.
