One of the animals that I enjoyed seeing and photographing was this monkey. I'm not sure of the type he is but I did read about him when I was there. I think he is a patas monkey that are normally found in Central Africa based on this Wikipedia link here. Guess I should've taken a picture of the sign so I could provide that info. Anyway, I'm not sure of he's sad or not, but I get that impression by looking at his eyes. I guess I would be too if I were cooped up in a cage, but hopefully he'll be able to move on to bigger and better things some time down the road.
As far as processing goes, I just did some minor exposure, clarity and vignette adjustments in Lightroom. I also brightened up his eyes a tad and cropped the overall shot just to put his face in a more "rule of thirds" location.
Now, if I could just figure out how to remove those bars in Photoshop! That would be awesome!
As always, I hope you enjoy the photo and thanks for dropping by!
