A wonderful, tender moment. I like the muted light and their fur standing up from a breeze. The baby is so cute, hiding in its parents. Just my personal opinion: I wish there was a little more space at the bottom below the hand. I also take zoo animal photos, so I know it can be difficult to frame animals, and the overall, powerful feeling of this moment has been captured beautifully.
Good eye. These are actually 'wild' apes who tolerate humans. I photographed them on Gibralter. I was sitting so close to them that I was afraid that they might get defensive because they have a young. The hand was bothering me as well. Guess I was a bit nervous. I had more photo's where I have more of the hand but I have to say this is still my favourite from the bunch. Thank you so much for your feedback and compliment.
