The detail is there but it looks a little bit over exposed in the face. Increasing highlights can recover some of this, but cloning is needed to recontruct the face. Did a workshop to show what I was talking about.


This is a beautiful White-face or White-throated Capuchin (Cebus capucinus) I've encounter in the wild both Central & South America. I've also seen them living sympatrically with squirrel monkeys in Peru. Paul :)

What a lovely and interesting monkey that you have well captured ! Congratulations Eyal and thanks for sharing.

Hi Eyal,
I love this monkey, they are so cute.
You also had a wonderful POV, he's sitting there very decorative.
IMO the bright point on the tree is a little disturbing, and the face is overexposed, I tried a little WS for you, hope you like it,
have a nice day, bye
