    Way to go Dumay...well deserved!


    I finally have a Leopard image that I am happy with. I have had many opportunities but there was always something not right weather it be lighting, grass over the face, and the list goes on...I got lucky enough to see this Female and her 2 year old son on both drives yesterday . Conditions were not perfect but I tried to make the best of the situation. I put on the 500 and went for the portrait which gave great BOKEH, and there was a patch of very thick bush to the right of the Leopard and it was not as clear as this OOF BG I have achieved here (It would have been too busy and a different color).

    Canon 1D MKIII
    Canon 500 f4 L IS
    AV f5
    TV 1/200
    ISO 800
    AWB
    RAW file processed in CS5 iMac

    Crits as always appreciated
