hi bros and sis...
this is the first time i'm posting here and would sincerely like to hear your C&C...



i like the look on the monkey's face... depicts a sense of concentration as it tries to eat the peanut which i supposed was thrown by the visitors... but somehow i find something is missing... is the blurry background too distracting?


details of the photo are as follows:
Location: Upper Pierce Reservoir
Camera: Canon EOS 350D
Aperture: f/5.6
Exposure time: 1/250sec
Focal Length: 208mm
ISO Speed: 400

no editing was done to this pic...
thank you in advance! :)

i think it's not the blur of the background that is distracting.. but rather.. the colour of the background..

not too sure about it.. but maybe going even lower.. and then using more foilage as the background might be better.. and capturing more of the face (the right eye?!) of the monkey might be good.. you might even consider a tighter crop..

my 2 cents.. =)

Hopefully you are not those purist who insist on not editing photos.
Alot can be done in post process to enhance this pic. Cropping, adding contrast/saturation, b/w convertion etc.

Composition wise, focus more on the eyes, concentration is seen thru the eyes more than any. Right now there's too much background at the top and too little of the monkey. Given that the subject is very hard to capture, do try again.

Just my 2 cents.
