what a great portrait of the kudu, vivian! :-)
terrific frontal view directly in the face with a very cool
expression and good eye-contact.
nice colors and awesome details - my favorites are the big
ears and the twisted horns, there is just some slight noise visible.
well seen & captured, thorsten.

A very impressive creature,and a nice clear capture Vivian.
I see it has chipped its horn fighting,and that there is another straight behind it.

This is without doubt the nicest antelope in the world. You couldn't be more correct when you said "you becomes silent if you see those wonderfull animals." So true!!
Technically I find the noise levels a bit high and wonder if you used noise reduction sofware to reduce it. The bright BG borders on distracting but it was the only way you could get this antelope exposed correctly. The african sun tends to do this more often than not. Well done.

What a splendid display of the true "power of nature", Vivian :)
He really does look very impressive.
Excellent frontal POV and great details. Very well framed and composed, too. A very nice note to go with all them :)
Very well done!
Bravo and TFS

this is so nice and majestic, no more words needed, I love the fade in the picture. TFS Ori
Great shorpness and composition.
Also very good POV.
I like it.
Stunning photograph. I also noticed the kudu directly behind him.
Nice job with exposure and composition. I'm glad the full horns were included.

Nice idea, this close up.
IMO it has a bit of noise and I wonder why.
Cropping? Exposure UE due to metering process?
But neverthelss overall well done

Perfect portrait. It is full of sense. This animal simply suppresses by own look. The point of view is chosen excellently. Details and sharpness are great too. Very interesting and original work. My compliments.
