The rock of Gibraltar has a spectacular view and a community of monkeys. These monkeys are quite smart; they observe people through the window of the bar to get to know what they buy, then wait for them to exit the bar, and eventually snatch the "merchandise" ... a chocolate bar or something like that.
Here's one planning and sceming new ways to rob ... or he might just be meditating.

I hope you don't mind if I offer you some advice; I know I found all the advice offered to me really valuable, when I started on TE.
When you are composing a photograph, you usually try to use what we call the thirds lines. If you imagine the photograph being divided by three lines vertically and horizontally. So, in the case of your monkey, you would try to put his eyes along the thirds line. Since he is looking towards our right, you would leave the extra space at that side so that the monkey has space into which he can look.
I have done a w/s to help explain my notes.
I do hope you find this useful.
The monkey has great character and you have captured his fur with good textural details.
My warm regards,

Those Gibraltar monkeys, as I remember them, act like notty children - but with charm. This one posing for you like a model, face expression show for evidence what just mention in the previous lines...
Beautifully applied with the blue sea and number of vessels as background.
Light and sharpness well collected.
