Not much left to be said about the cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) but sometimes a new angle or vision of a classic subject is worth a look.

Hello Radu,
That´s a very nice portrait. Excellent sharpness, great colours and POV. Well captured too. Thanks for sharing.

Une prise de vue sur ce félin est originale.

Félicitations pour la belle lumière et bonne journée.

Hi Radu,
Interesting shot! I like the way the cheetah takes up the entire frame. The colours and spots are lovely. I like the pose and expression on the cheetah's face :)
Well done!

I like this picture more than Claudia does this is an interesting crop. Spots are definitely in. Paul :)

I really like the tight crop and the angle you have chosen, Radu. It is very effective. You must have been really close. The details are amazing, and the light and colors are perfect. Well done and TFS. : )

Very cool shot. The composition is excellent the rythm of the shot is amazing and the cheetahs eyes really intense.

Well captured (I need a bigger smiley for this shot)

Great pattern, Radu, however the shot could be a bit more focused :-)
Best greetings,

It's no doubt something new.
I don't think I've ever seen such framing but I must say it works great. I have only feeling that the cat looks as if he was closed in very small box.
I like it :)

Great capture of this beautiful animal. I very much like the way you framed your photo. Very good visual impact. Colors are nice and details excellent. TFS!

Bit soft in focus, but I VERY much like this "bursting the frame" close composition. It creates tension and a high visual impact.


Superb PICTURE !!!!
Very well composed.
Nice DOF / POV.
Magnificent colors.


What a striking image! Love the tight cropping, the wonderful patterns and the cheetah's expression.

Well done.
