Two beautiful males, Juan.
Both in the depth of field range and a shutter speed which is short enough to provide them the necessary sharpness.
Well done

Hallo Juan
Welcome to Trek Nature. I hope you have a pleasant and educational journey on the site.
This is a lovely capture of two Kudu bulls in their natural surroundings. They look relaxed and not bothered by you, if they have noticed you. In my personal opinion I would have cropped the image slightly to bring the buck more close to the eye, showing more detail of this beautiful antelope and especially those lovely horns, said that I think your first posting is a lovely one to start the journey. It is like the two of them are walking towards the future. Thanks for sharing, as it brings back lovely memories of our Kruger Park vacation in 2008.
Best regards.
Anna

Hi Juan? (Hola?)
Excellent picture of this beautiful and interesting species.
TFS. Regards.

Juan,
Welcome to Treknature.

You've focused well on the kudu bulls. Lovely sharpness and great detail on the two bulls horns. You can distinguish between the variaty of colours. Not to bad for your first picture. Partice makes it perfect :-)

Well Done!!

hello Juan

Welcome to TN community and good to see your 1st post entry starting to share with us your capture of the bulls at Kruger. It must be exciting to shoot the wildlife at Kruger and I am sure you have more to post and share. This is a nice shot at 1/320s and the composition of the pair entering the frame instead of leaving, a good treatment. Perhaps you can adjust with contrast? I tried a workshop here if you dont mind to enhance the attractive natural look of this place, and hope that you find it helpful for future posting. What do you think?

Very good work with your Nikon D40 [which I recently just added to my collection] and 200mmFL and hope to see more shots from you soon.

Greetings from Borneo, tropical rainforest and 3rd largest island of the world.

tfs, bill
