I love your composition here, Diana! The placement of the three macaques is just perfect, with a beautiful flow from one to another around the circle. The detail is exquisite, while the body language and expressions are the icing on the cake. Love it!

Thanks so much Carol. I so wanted the baby to open his eyes, but the moment he awoke, he moved. So this was the best composition I could come up with!

I can see that with your striving for perfection, you would want the infant to open his eyes, but I can assure you that this is an exceptional photo just as it is.  :)

Diana, This is truly exceptional. For me, I prefer the baby snuggling with the eyes closed versus having his eyes open. I think it tells a story that he has complete trust in his parents. Which imho is the better image.
