    Hi Doc -- A nice tight portrait of the Cheetah. Nice colours and looks sharp albeit i feel more DOF would have been helpful to get those eyes sharper. I might crop it a bit tighter coming from Rhs as viewed and also slightly from the top and bottom.

    Nice one, TFS !

    Beautiful details in the fur, nose and mouth sharp eyes sharpish ears not so, having said that I like the image and I like the composition. Just maybe consider warming up a little??

    Hi Sanjeev ... lovely amber eyes !!!
    Crop works well as presented for me .
    Might give the HL slightly more tone depth and form .

    Nice details and eye contact with this one. Those flies must be annoying. Looking good.

    Sanjeev, the eyes a great, but lack that crisp detail for an image like this. next time try putting the FP on an eye, but it all depends on the angle.
