Default D5000 18-200 mm you could wait all day for this.

I was getting on a bus on the Rock of Gibralta, when a couple of Apes jumped onto the front of it. Luckily I had my camera in my hand and grabbed this shot. What are the chances of getting another Ape in the mirror that is sitting on the wiper blade. How long would you have to wait if you wanted something like this to happen.
Does anyone have any idea what I could do in P/Shop to make this a really good pic.

HAHA, really cool capture
its is near as good as it gets
ill see what i can do, and ill re upload it and tell you the changes.


edit:

it was near perfect on all levels of exposure

all i did was adjust the levels, shadows and highlights, brightness and contrast, saturation and sharpened it. In hindsight, i may have over done it a little, but you get the idea behind the changes.

but there really isnt too much to do besides minor adjustments to make it better, maybe crop it different, but ill leave that to you

PB thanks for the effort.
I was thinking more of trying to get rid of the background but couldn't think how it would look right. I gave it a little sharpen before posting, I also blurred the background a bit but didn't make any other exposure adjustments.The extra sharpening looks good but I'm very careful and tend to under sharpen.
I took it in Program mode iso 200. 1/800. F7.10 and Pattern metering.I was about 6 ft from the subject.
I'm really very very pleased with my set up, it's the best performing outfit I've ever owned.
I just wish it was 8.ozs lighter but we cant have everything.
