Evil monkey from the movie about the evil monkey that smiles awkwardly

This hit #1 interestingness on Wednesday, May 17, 2006, and I beat Flickr.

    Definitely a psychedelic element here (for me atleat), i think on a technical level plenty works 0 colours, texture of the little monkey and the aperture. The subject itself does not really move me although does make me smile.

    Funny shot. A little disturbed by the shadow in the background. I would suggest to do some cropand get a tighter frame to exaggerate the facial expression.

    The monkey is cute, and nice colors. The background adds little, maybe a tighter crop would deemphasize that. The tip of his hand and the cymbals are a little distracting. A little more detail on his ears would also help.

    Love the subject. Agree with comment above about needing all the cymbals in there to complete the creepiness of it. Is it maybe a little overexosed? The teeth look a little washed out on my monitor.

    I like the shot and the DOF, but I would try another one with a background that is either uniform or in a differen colour so as to really draw out the details and the line of the monkey.

    FYI 100 Points people, we're really at #9 now due to the double #7's that confused things; i.e., the next one will be #10.

    Tell the truth...this is really a portrait of Tony Blair, isn't it? ;-)
  • Sergio Lubezky 9y

    Original, creative and it transmits a feling all right (I find it quite scary!)

    The composition and DOF work perfectly for me and so does the background. Good (monkey!) shoot!

    Final rating in the 100 Points group is a massive 88 Points.

    Thanks everyone for the criticisms. I might try to reshoot this with some of your ideas if I can catch him again.

    A flashback of 'Monkey Shines' is coming to mind...
