    I've been in Brazil for 3 weeks on vacation, surprisingly havent taken any pictures really besides this one. Let me know what you guys think, I want some harsh CC, PP ideas/suggestions, etc.

    Kinda wish I took it with a slightly higher aperture but whatever.

    this one made me chuckle outloud. I love the simplicity of the background..it helps to bring out the texture of the monkey boy.
    EDIT: total screw up..didn't see your last statement.

    As you said, I would have opened up the aperture too..other than that, this looks great

    Thanks. He was so close to me (like a foot away or less) I wanted to shoot it 1.8 to really bring out his eyes/face, but now I wish more of his body was in focus, and I didn't have the chance to change aperture before he moved, oh well. :p

    It looks good, but I'm not sure that B&W is best... (not exactly 'contrasty')

    What does it look like in color?

    I'll post up the color version in a little bit.
    Tried bumping up the contrast but the detail that I wanted in his eyes got too dark when I did this, so I just did it a little bit.
