hi vandana, its nice to hear about your journey and john is exactly right and its good to have that inspiration,
this is a cute shot, good dof and composition,
What a beauty, Vandana ;o). Nice capture, good DoF (though I think you applied some blur to the backdrop too) and a lovely pose of your model.
It was nice meeting you irl, and it's nice learning from you too. By the way, congrats and a big hug for your first 15,000 points. You know my view on the point system, but it's still nice to see craftmanship "rewarded".

What a lovely portrait of this baby monkey! With his wrinkles in his faces, he looks like an wise old man. Great sharpness and nice monochrome. I appreciated you note. Congratulations for this achievement. All points are well deserved! Bravo! Annie

An excellent portrait of an interesting subject. I like the way you have the monkey in sunlight against the background in shade. The sun streaking through its fur really sets it off. TFS

You did it practicly all by yourself.
And your big boost came after your Photo Shop course
where even I in my turn had a bennefit off..
You teached me a few.
All in the good spirit of TL!
To learn something means you have to accept ...like in real life
I love how you did this monkey..razor sharp and a great POV
Welldone on the 15 000 points !!
Smiles from snowy Montreal dear friend .

A fine tribute, Vandana, and you wrote it well. I think photography is a part of our body except it is not attached but an extension.
Yesterday I saw a blind singer artist and his music/writing is fantastic and best of all, he is vibrant and happy and he touched everyone around him with his radiance.
And I asked myself, now how would he enjoy photography with eye sight? ...how lucky we are to be able to appreciate light and photography.
And his famous hit song is titled "You are my eyes", a very touching and popular song.
And I am very tempted to write something about this subject as INTRO, but decided not to, yet. And here I am, saying it to a monkey photo!
Now, coming back to this monkey business, I find it a fine portrait and he looks very outstanding on his own, glazing down in such expressive mood. Very nicely shot with light above, and I mean, especially this light from above.
Great work it is.

And then you set out on a journey on TL, probably not having any idea that it would be much much more then just uploading pictures.
Sharing, helping, inspiring and all that will get you to reach that 15.000 border. That really is worth a congratulations!
How lovely to celebrate that by sharing with us this beautiful and detailed capture of this naughty child - hope you will continue your journey.

You caught this little guy in a very natural pose, with the camera's focus on the hands, feet, and perch.
A rare reflective moment for him, I'm sure.
