Nothing wrong with sharpness(and sharpness should be equipment based, I think you meant focusing issues?). I think the branches at the back are a bit distracting. However, I thought this was a pretty good shot! Nothing much to crtique about. I liked the eye-contact you made and the unique pose that the monkey was in. :thumbsup::)

Not a bad shot, the monkey is reasonably sharp. Perhaps you can consider some touch up - (1) cropping off those extra space on the left (up to the tree trunk) and (2) up the exposure slightly. I downloaded your pic and touch up abit. See if this is slightly better - http://gallery.clubsnap.com/data/500/medium/monkey9.jpg

if I am not wrong, it is probably a species of the Lemur family.

Exposure look ok. Overall seems ok. Composition, there are lots of distracting elements in the photo that is not helping the photo overall.

The crop by kwttan seems to have improve the composition. Maybe an even tighter crop and focus on the face and half body may be better.

i feel the original version, the eyes stands out more. ur edited composition is better though.
