Hi Farid,

She or he is a beauty! I love the way you managed with backlight, the pose of the animal, POV, composition and great eye contact! This is beautiful! Thanks,

Hello Farid,

A very fine composition for this magnificent leopard! I like the way she is looking straight at the camera and how the soft light is illuminating tiny areas of her fur.
Lovely sharp image!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Beautiful animal, wonderful capture. TFS

Hi Farid

I love the shot, the composition is excellent. the DOF is almost there (i think the front of the tail is just very slightly OOF but it does not detract much from the photo). The light and the wonderful background really add to the shot and I hope you will treasure it. As an aside if you are ever wondering what to say in these photos, say what you were doing there and any PP work rather than just 'none'. It just adds to the picture and builds the image...

Hi Farid,
I like this image for its very painting like effect in the OOF leaves in the background,the dappled light on the head.The expression of surprise is nice.
