    Good choice of aperture, I like the colours and details, I might tone down the white area on the leg, this might help maintain concentration on the hyena's face a little more.

    Hi Sanjeev nice one .... i specially like the concentrated look and i can almost hear the bone cracking ... when looking at the image .

    Tones are looking quite good to me , but there is almost all the time room to play with them , locally . Colors are looking slightly off to me ... for sure subjective in many cases . Detail / sharpness is looking good , i would still drop the white side of the sharpening halo a fraction .

    So here is an RP for illustration ....

    Cracking image, Sanjeev! Please forget the pun, I just had to say it...I too can hear that bone cracking in the powerful jaws of this hyena

    Great scene well captured, lighting conditions were tough indeed but good thinking in the field with those techs. POV is superb and framing works for me, I am curious though whether you might have thought of a vertical composition as well.

    Very nice detail on the hyena's face and sharpness is in good measure. In terms of colour/tonality I think Andreas's tweaks - albeit subtle - work very well. A wonderful behavioural image I enjoyed viewing, keep them coming Sanjeev

    Kind regards,
    Gabriela Plesea

    Hi Doc -- Nice caption and I liked the tight framing. Good call on techs and I would prefer something between your OP and Andreas RP in terms of tones. Colours could be worked upon but you will be the better judge in this case.

    I think you really had stuck to the landscape mode for this trip , coz i feel after reading Gabriela's comment that portrait framing might also have worked ?

    Nice one, TFS !

    Love the title and of course the interaction here. Nice view of the hyena with a nice background. Image quality looks very good for the high ISO.
