    A 2yr old leopardess yawns and stretches welcoming in the evening providing me with this wonderful silhouetted pose.

    Would I have liked her just a step further out showing the full tail?.....for sure.

    Marc I'd be thrilled if it was mine! I have seen similar shots in a TV programme called Serengeti, you have beautiful colours and a super silhouette. My only criticism is that the image could have been 1200px tall, it would look absolutely super!

    Really nice! Good work. Love that it is not a full sihouette so you can see the spots. I wish that tree kept going up out of the frame, but this is killer regardless. The intersecting tail doesn't ruin the shot. Would you consider pushing the saturation and / or luminance of the suset a little more?

    Lovely image Marc, really liked the execution and that Yawn adds immensely to the frame. Agree with your self critique reg the Tail , it just feels something is obstructed. But overall a very nice frame.

    TFS !

    Hi Marc .....simply stunning !!!
    Brilliant work . Well timed and a super image design .
    Might just crop a bit from LHS to create a cleaner edge ....
    Love the softness of the color transitions from yellow to blue !!!!!!

    TFS Andreas

    This is beautiful, Marc! Love the dreamy feel of this image and stunning colours

    Nice composition too...Would you perhaps consider taking a tad off the LHS, just to eliminate the little stump at the bottom LHC?

    Don't mind the tail partially hidden behind the branch, it's Nature. Superb sighting, would have loved to see this with my own eyes!

    Really enjoyed viewing, and I thank you for sharing. Looking forward to more...and hopefully lion cub with mom...saw it on FB...You've got to share

    Kind regards,
    Gabriela Plesea
