Hi Gerard,

another very good and beautiful image.
Great pov, suburp sharpness with fine colours.


Bonjour Gerard,
A nice photo of a Springbok - I wonder if it was a young one?!? Good focus - they are very nervous animals, and one has to hurry!

The harsh light in Etoscha makes exposure VERY DIFFICULT - and I think - a little darkening would make the image better. I uploaded to your workshop an example of my idea.

I like the natural colours - will give other members an idea what Etoscha looks like!

Thank you for showing your work on TrekNature.

Have a nice day and a good week
Kind Regards

Hello Gerard,
this collection really wonderful. Excellent composition of this beautiful creature.Very sharp indeed and look very exciting with the dry grass in the background.
The grass also gives a graphic composition.
A nice one.


Hello Gerard
A nice portrait of this cute little Springbok. I like the angle you captured him in showing off his nice markings. Colours and lighting are good. It looks like a very hot day.

Hello Gerard,
This is a nice image that I believe could have been improved a touch by first focusing on the subjects eyes I know when shooting in the wild things are happening very quickly and this is very hard to do. They other thing I would have done is frame this in landscape instead of portrait, but that is just a personal thing. You have done extremely well with the harsh lighting something I am terrible at doing. Nice work Gerard, thank you.
