    A cheetah gets inquisitive at Masai Mara. The coalition walked up to this mound about 10 feet away from us.

    Must have been quite exciting to be so close. You handled the light here very well. Details look nice and the cheetah is nice and sharp.

    It looks absolutely beautiful Sanjeev. I appreciate the colours vary slightly between the animals in various locations.... but the blacks look pretty dense (???)

    Hi Sanjeev a lovely encounter , i guess !!
    Well controlled light under the given circumstances .... good job done .
    Eye contact is nice , but think the pose is a bit awkward and i am 50/50 about to like it or not !
    Colors looking good i think but agree with Jon about the blacks ....

    Hi Sanjeev, I have to disagree on the blacks, they are not clipped, I just think you may have added some contrast? Personally because of the pose/stance I would have put the Cheetah more to the left with more negative space to the right, this may also have given separation between subject and the shrub at the back. At 10ft I would have gone to f/11, but as I said I still feel the 5D is out. The face looks over sharp and avoid sharpening the whiskers. I might go a little plus on the Temp and a minus on the Tint, asdd some white too, WDYT?

    TFS
