What about the leaf but not the stick,, maybe, better without in this framing, more of a portrait style photo and as it stands the leaf is just a distraction.

Agree, leave the leaf, remove the stick. I like the depth the leaf gives.

If it was mine both would go. Whilst Eric has a good point the leaf is too intrusive. Hard one to call but a very nice shot my friend.

Yea, I think both have got to go, but also on my monitor there is a green hue in the white of the fur, that probably ought to be reduced some. Maybe it's just my monitor? It's nice and sharp for sure, but needs something else of interest in there, me thinks…

I would keep both the leave and the stick – I don't find them intrusive at all. Without them, this photo still looks good to me, but kinda too simple, like a plain portrait. The streak of green makes it more alive.

Maybe remove the monkey and emphasize the stick? Ok, I have not had coffee yet….

i like it with, it looks more like a natural setting. and i can tell something has been removed in the other.

My wife says he looks more like me in the morning without the leaf and stick, so probably keep them in.

Thank you all for your input. It isn't unanimous but I think I'll leave the leaf and stick alone.
Tom: this little guy was on a bamboo stock surrounded by greenery so you're correct that he's a little green…that was the light that was there. No need to to adjust your monitor.
John: Best to not start drinking before your coffee me thinks.
Roger: My condolences to your wife. Maybe invest in some Gillette stuff.
