Gerhard, Good registration of this baboon. But it lacks something. It is technically very wel taken but it lacks emotion/feeling or something. This may have to do with the look of the animal or possibly the background which does not contrast very much with the animal.
Nevertheless it is a well recorded portrait.

Hasn't this baboon heard of hair straighteners or does he spend hours backcombing it!
Seriously though it is a fantastic picture with an amazing expression. The clarity is exceptional. Great note also. A definite favourite.

He looks like an old grandad sat out side the village cafe sipping a drop of the local hard stuff and a endless cups of black coffee.

What a beautiful portrait, perfectly framed and photographied. Very good soft light, suits well for a portrait. I like the eyes looking slightly on your right, giving even more personality. He deserves the title you've choosen!
Is this someone we know (maybee someone from parliament!) Excellent capture and I love the textures. Those eyes (that will never tell a lie) are wonderfull. Excellent post

Gerhard, He's got the look alright! Reminds me a bit of Einstein the famous physicist!. Without the IQ of course!! A fascinating animal and very informative note. TN is now my designated "Learning Channel"!!!

Well, this sure is a fine character study, Gerhard. Remarkable facial expression, and one-of-a-kind hairdo to boot. Well captured against the contrasting brown background. Wonderful capture, and very good job on the notes.

Great animal portrait. I love the tones and colours in this picture. The amount of retained detail in the fur is fantastic.
The expression of the baboon, his face and eyes make this a picture to look at over and over again.

Such beautiful expression on his face... the more I look at it the more i read into it... the more i read into it the more human it looks to me.
Howard's observation of Einstein is indeed true:-)
Very informative note too.
Thanks for sharing

Great photo. Good note to. The background could be a bit darker to bring out the priest more.
Just a pity that this photo was taken in a zoo and not in his natrual inviroment.
