This is a wonderful portrait. The look in the eyes of the Gorilla and the way she holds her head is marvelous. It's like you wrote; the Mona Lisa of the apes. Very, very well composed. Exposure and lightening is fantastic. Details are sharp. POV & DOF are excellent. My only nit are the black borders below and on top of the photo. I would not have included them, but I agree that this is highly subjective and not objective criticism in any way. ;) However, a great portrait. Well done & TFS!
Ahh, this is a magnificent shot Radu. Her pose, expression and body language is a fantastic capyure. You have captured an awesome moment. Very good quality image too. Congrats on a great one. Thanks

great portrait. Excellent details & sharpness, perfect composition and great colours.
Well done, Radu.
Great pose of this big ape. This big gorilla looks very human. I think a bit more grass in front of the gorilla would do the compostion good.
Nevertheless, interesting photo.

Fantastic portrait Radu,
She looks like she's been holding that pose for a long time. She has a great exporession on her face. Great composition, detail and sharpness. The exposure and POV are perfect.
Thanks for posting
A Glamour shot, Radu. Excellent capture of the pose and emotions. This is outstanding! Love it!
These is really special shot Radu.
I love the way she looks, her pose and sad eyes.
I did a WS to show how I see the photo. It's quite hard PP some would say, but I like it and I decided to post it.
I love this shot cause it has that special "something".
Very well done.

Well captured. What a pose ? I agree that a bit more grass and a little less black would improve the impact. Funny anyway.

Belle et intéressante composition photographique bien réalisée pour cette "new Mona Lisa". Bon point de vue et bonne netteté.
I like your composition !

Excellent capture, Radu! I really like the pose of the great ape - she does look positively feminine in a strange sort of way. Clever title!
