Annick, What a lovely image of the Impala caught in the act of eating a leaf. Very well composed. Sharp image under soft lighting and a non-distracting background. Great image to watch.

Hallo Annick,
Je foto's komen nu wel een erg rap tempo. Maar bij deze grote klasse is dat alleen maar prettig. Want deze foto is weer schitterend. Perfecte contrasten in de kleuren en ontzettend scherp. Erg mooie achtergrond. Uitstekende compositie.

Hello Annick,

Nice portret of the impala you have made. Image is very sharp as ususally and colors have delicate color tones. The background matches very well with fur color.

Thank you for sharing,

Hi Annick

I love the DOF and the light; it makes the shot look almost 3d. The impala looks wonderfully relaxed in the middle of it's lunch. Beautifully composed, sharp and wonderfully detailed.

Hello Annick,
What a superb pose you have captured here with her attention diffinately on something other than you. The razor sharp details and nice exposure result in this pleasant image showing this impala focusing both eyes and ears on a possible threat. Interesting note as well my friend.

Bonjour Annick,
Je vois que j'ai manqué pas mal d'images ces derniers temps. elle-ci est d'une grande finesse par son cadrage, l'attitude de la petite antilope et les couleurs très subtiles de l'arrière-plan qui mettent bien en exergue la beauté de cet Impala. Très beau!
Bonne fin de semaine

Hello Annick
As a new member, I'm quite late with your gallery and I have a whole bunch of pictures to browse! Second, since as far as I know I'm allowed 20 critics per day, I think I'll use them today with your talent. Dont be surprised to see points accumulating from me tonight, even if there is not much comment on each. I start with this one
