    The colours in this photo are great, really make it stand out, I also like the textures, think it makes it a generally asthetically pleasing photo, I see what you mean about the sky in the top right though, did you edit the rest of the sky but not that part, or was it on the original photo?

    You know, if you didn't mention the top right corner, I would not have been looking for it.

    Overall, love the photo; colors, subject, focus....

    Great job...:D

    I agree, the sky in that corner isn't really much of a concern...but hey, maybe you are a perfectionist, nothing wrong with that.

    The easiest solution might be to just crop it off. Do you really need the top of the photo?

    You could also try using the magic want to select the patches of sky and edit them independently.

    I like the effect that you have created here, but its too busy for me. If the primate was facing the camera the focal point would be better defined.

    Focus seems a tad soft though. Intentional or sideffect of HDR? I think it was probably a side-effect of hdr. I'm curious how it wasn't more blurry because of the HDR brackets. Didn't the people and monkey move?

    Overall, really rich colors and pretty photo.

    The soft focus was intentional i personaly feel it looked much better that why (also im a soft kinda girl LOL)

    I shot the original image as a single RAW and worked with the HDR from that so i didnt get any blur :)
