    This is the same young male Leopard as previous, but looking straight down the barrel and much tighter in crop 'in-camera'.

    Thanks to those who posted or viewed on the last posting.
    Volkan Akgul, if you read this thread I hope this echo's your very gracious words.

    Now that is a leopard image! I see the same bloody paw and more importantly he is looking at me. Details and colours first class - it's a beauty.

    Hi Volka, thank you, as I said, I tried to find something fitting to your very kind words, apologies I cannot write this in Turkish.


    Many thanks Jon, 'Old but Gold'. First bit of snow this morning, steadily melting now, Goldfinches very, very skittish!!!!

    Love the perspective of the cat looking down Steve. Yes all the processing looks great as usual. I like the crop all on the cat. TFS

    Now that is a gaze. The eye contact really makes this one. I like the grasses.

    Hi Steve .... gorgeous frame !
    Usual technical high output .
    For me the slightly tilted head in combo with the " down the barrel " look into the camera , is making the difference for me .
    Might burn the soil a bit more , to make him stand out even more .

    Surprised to see that you have blown the red channel ....

    Enjoyed watching and TFS Andreas

    Hi Steve , i remember a similar frame posted by Rachel sometime back.

    I always like tight frames of big cats , they are so eye catching and tighter frame makes the image more engaging.

    Lighting looks difficult but you have done a fine job of it , nice one.

    TFS !
