Hi David

I like the idea you had in taking this photogragh, it was a shame that the zoom did not get you close enough. I have added a WS to address a few points I think needed to be considered here. The full light appeares to have taken some of the colours away and the branch hanging over his head is a slight distraction. I like the pose looking straight at us and to bein a pose of control. The wooden platform looks good also against the tree, good balance.

stv ;o))

Hello David,
thanks for sharing this kind of the jungle, he is well fed by his looks which is a winner already, I also try to be as natural as possible when taking photographs, I do not have PhotoShop installed at moment, but I don't know what camera you have, if you would like to share that I could try help in minimizing the need to PP or photoshop.
