Hello Gerard
Superb presentation with natural colors and great details
Thanks for sharing

Bonjour Gerard,
I'm glad you're back to TN, and your new photos are very pleasant to see. Like this one: fantastic composition with the oryx gazella's head just in the right third, there are other gazellas in the background and a row of trees, all are very important compositional elements. Everything is top class except for the added canvas, such a pale color combination doesn't help to inhance the contrast of the photo. A white - black combination would have been better - but the photo itself is second to none. Bravo mon ami.
Friendly regards, László

Bonjour Gérard,
Une gazelle aux dimensions impressionnnates avec des cornes très affûtées. Une apparition probalment inoubliable. Excellente gestion de la lumière ici, pas facile avec une luminosité aussi importante. Le choix de f/18.0 est probablemnt idéal ici. Et de belles coculeurs naturelles, comme d'habitude.
Bonne fin de semaine

This puppy doesn't go down easy even for a tiger eh? It sure looks husky for its family. Enough to feed a village for a month?

Certainly one of the most bulked up creatures I have seen, without being flabby. Great show! Well seen here in the US of A.

Hi Gerard,

Bonsoir Gérard,
A very fine capture of Oryx gazella, the Dof providing fine sharpness and DOF to show the habitat as a nice BG.
The lateral POv is excellent but perhaps the composition is la little too central.
Merci et bonne soirée,
