This monkey was sitting in the tree watching all the people walk by. I could almost hear him thinking: “If I evolve, do I have to wear that shirt with those pants. I sure hope not!”
I really liked the monkey's pose and the clean background in front of him, but I had two problems: there was a lot of “garbage” on the monkey's backside and the light was very hard on his front. I decided on a slightly unconventional crop that did not show all of his body to solve the garbage issue and decided to underexpose the image by about 3 EV to make the photograph as much about the lighting as the subject. I really did not care whether the fur on his front legs blew-out; I thought that would just help separate him from the background.
Camera settings: Nikon D3, 300mm f/4 with 1.7x teleconverter attached (effective 500mm lens), shot at ISO 200, f/13 and 1/750 of a second on tripod.
