|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]|
|A lioness has certainly noticed this reedbuck from a distance. She made a detour so that the car served as a screen between her and her prey! She could so come very close of the reedbuck. The photo was taken when the antelope becomes aware of her presence.|
For information, the hunt was unsuccessful, the reedbuck escaped before the lioness could do the last few meters towards its prey.

perfect framing AND good contrast and sharpness, did you enhance it this time?
Great sharpness on the reedbuck and interesting note. Personally I'd like to see a little less of the out of focus foreground, it's a little disturbing (to me). Concerning to this thought, the empty space in front of the reedbuck's head is a bit too much (again: just a personal opinion!). Otherwise a nice shot, just the crop isn't my cup of tea. Maybe next time.
Have a great new year, best regards, László
He is so alert and after reading your note I understand why. You have captured this Reedbuck in very natural environment.
I like your composition and the clarity you have captured.
Thanks for sharing
Happy New Year and all the best in 2013
Excellente composition, j'adore les couleurs!
