    Hi all, here is an image of a Hartebeest clicked last year. Shot tight to highlight the texture, the fascinating horns and that eye.

    A solid portrait here for sure. Like the pose and those horns are quite nice. Maybe dodge the eye a little.

    Again, another subject early posted, well done.

    Techs here look good, but having such a light BKG I might have changed metering. It's unfortunate the subject was more in shadow judging by the BKG so it's limited the tonal range to add more depth. If you had better light this could work really nicely, keep them coming.

    I think this is a good portrait, the hartebeest really is a curiosity isn't it? the greens and the hartebeest look optimally exposed, i think I would be tempted to lower the luminosity of the white sky, it might make the image easier on the eye.
