Ha Annick,

Misschien is het nummer 38,maar een schitterend dier om te fotograferen en je hebt hem in een typische pose vastgelegd,veelal wordt er helaas door de meeste bezoekers in het park aan voorbij gescheurd,met de gedachte daar staan ze weer,daarom misschien wel ondergewaardeerd,als je de impalas een beetje gaat observeren weet je wel wanneer en waar er evt een roofdier in de buurt zit,heb al enige malen zelf mogen meemaken dat de impalas elkaar begonnen te alarmeren wanneer er leeuwen in de buurt zaten voordat we ze zelf in de gaten hadden,


A fine tele-close up of an impala in a feeding posture Annick, this frontolateral aspect shows the salient features of this individual quite nicely. TFS this fine image my friend.

Hallo Annick,
Gewoon een erg mooie foto. Alles in deze foto heeft een prachtige natuurljke sfeer. De scherpte en diepte zijn zoals gebruikelijk weer uitstekend.
Ben trouwens vandaag ook ingeschreven in Trekearth waar ik portretten van de stammen in Ethiopië ga plaatsen.

This almost looks three dimensional. It is just a perfect photo. I can't take my eyes off of those horns!

Evelynn : )

Hi Annick. This is a thin looking Impala it looks under fed. but you have captured it with fine detail and natural colours. It has a fine set of horns. well done TFS.

Hi Annick, lovely shot of this cute and shy impala. Lighting and composition are splendid my friend.
TFS and cheers,


What a great close up look at this Impala Annick.
The DOF is very good,nice natural colour,and great detail,from the horns to the tail.
Wonderful image and great work.

Add them up Annick...You are the true TN junkie even if it takes a trip of a few thousand miles, a great subject, a good eye, good gear and a happy smile!

Hello Annick,

The sharpness of your phot is amaising. The whole animal is kept in focus showing very good details. Horns structure is very well shown with sharp details and many color tones. The blurry background is giving depth to the image and makes viewer concentrate on the main subject.

Thank you for sharing,

merhaba Annick
wonderful capture and pp working of this cute model
i like composition, POV, light, colours, sharpness and details

natural colours. It has a fine set of horns.

Hi Annick!

Your wildlife pictures are impressive and so beautiful. But don't like pictures taken in zoos. I hope you don't mind and I know this is personal. Here, I imagine it is taken out in nature. That's quite a big difference. The animal is beautiful, well put on stage in a simple, yet pleasant and effective composition.

Kind regards
