[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We visited the Hoedspruit sanctuary for cheeta's and other animals. They were very strict with not allowing visitors to the cats, for not spreading deseases. Therfor I had to uses some Photoshop magic (healing brush & clone stamp) to get this close-up: check out the workshop for the original picture.

Nice picture, but the tones of the animal is almost melted with the tones of the background. Would it be better if the background was radically different ? Not sure. The texture as shown here is soft and shows a very special ambience.

Nice shot but it would have been better to get a bit more of the face.

Saskia, you have done a wondeful work with postprocesing. I was surprised whrn I saw the original in the workshop. Great work.
