Monkeys at Play

Monkeys at Play

We spent a little while observing this group of monkeys playing amongst themselves. They were very serious about the game, as you can observe from their facial expressions. They remind me of humans so much...

What do I like about this photo? The action and composition. I used a fast shutter speed to freeze the action so the monkeys are sharp, even though they're moving quickly. I used an open aperture to create a shallow depth of field, so the Monkeys are sharp but the background is blurred out, so that the Monkeys stand out. I took this from a low angle of view to make for a dramatic photo.

What would I want to improve? The background is a bit too noisy for my taste...
