[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As I saw this Leopard, I had just a few seconds to make this shot.
I would prefer a little more space in from, but that was impossible, due to a large tree ahead in the foreground that would ruin the picture.

And I agree, nature does not wait and yet, you have a great shot here. Well done on the capture of this rather elusive cat.

Hello Luis

This is a very nice shot you have taken here even if you only had a few seconds. I really like pose, it makes the Leopard seem a big and in demand of respect as it should have. The POV is good aswell as the details and sharpness. Mabye it could use a bit more contrast. I made a WS for you if your interested.

the shot is great Louis
a fantastic pose, good details and a super dof, with a look from this animal into the camera it was bin perfect. But I know you have a few seconds for the shot, very good job I like it.
