Hi Annick

Lovely shot. Good clarity and sharpness. Nice colours. Lovely to view. TFS.

Hi Annick,
Bravo for this one. Details are clear and sharp and its expression is very nice. You had a great timing there :-) Exposure, focus and the BG are very good. I think this one is the one I prefer so far in this serie. Its ears are low... be carefull ;-) Thanks,

Hi Annick,
Perfect picture.


Hi Annick.

With my best wishes

complimenti foto stupenda

Hi, Annick.
It's a nice animal. Good colors and nice eye contact. But here are some technical problems probably connected with postprocess sharpening. If you look carefully, you see halos around ears and oversharpening pixels in eyes. Some advices about sharpening:
1.) Do sharpening only once as the final stage of postprocessing. For every size is it's own sharpening.
2.) Don't do it so obviously. There are a lot of good technlogies to do it. For example:
If uou have last PS, you can use smart sharpening for example with lab colors or use it with layers.
Third possibility and very easy to use is to buy:

Then, there are lines in the right low corner. Seems to be remainings of cloning. Correct me, if I am wrong?

Hi Annick,
Lovely shot of one of my favouite big cats.
The details are nice, clear and sharp. I really like the strong eye contact you have captured.
superb colours, lighting and exposure. The POV is good.
Well composed and good framing.
Thanks for posting, have a great weekend.

amazing animal, well done in a zoo, TFS Ori

Hi Annick,
