    Hi Sanjeev ... good to see the relaxed pose of the subject and the low POV is stunning .
    Lovely fine details and you have controlled the side lighting quite nice with good detail in dark and light areas .

    When taken in evening light I would expect a slightly warmer WB , tint going a bit more to magenta . I personally think the crop is a wee bit tight , but your call !!!

    TFS Andreas

    Thanks Andreas. This is full frame so no more room around. Will look at WB.

    Hi Doc -- you have got some really nice details here and i too liked the low pov , well done on achieving that. Cant comment on colours due to the monitor I am using right now.

    You have handled the light quite well. I didn't like that shadow across the body but nothing you could have done abt it considering the lighting situation.

    Nice one, TFS !

    I have never seen such a detailed shot of a hartebeest, super image. I agree perhaps a little tight i n the frame, but what a treat to see so close up and relaxed.

    Hi Sanjeev, apart from the obvious, this perhaps is one of your best in terms of PP, sharpening and detail right on point, well done. Not sure about adding magenta, never heard of that to get evening light, but hey I'm still learning too.

    Keep the hard working going, it really is paying off Sanjeev.

    TFS

    What a neat looking animal. I like the rack. Yes it's tight but not much you could have done about that. Detail is right on.
