Hallo Annick,
Dit vind ik weer een echte Vanderschelden. Zeer hoge kwaliteit in alle aspecten van het fotograferen. Zelfs de Impala's in de achtergrond zijn boeiend. Perfect!

Hi Annick

Quite simply outstanding - great portrait made all the better by the OFF impala in the BG. Trally great composition.

Beauty, Annick. A wonderful subject. And I really like the way you've used the repetition for a sort of pattern shot, and de-emphasized the stuff in the bg perfectly with DoF and lighting. I also like the negative space you've allowed around the fg impala.

What a "luminous" impala portrait Annick, the wet hairs and the glistening horns make this a unique profile my friend, thank you indeed for sharing this beauty with us.

Hi Annick,

Just marking up, be back later...

Really sharp image of this Impala!
It stands out very well from the Impala filled BG.
Tack-sharp and really detailed.
I like the composition and the parallel POV is very good.
Even if the light was bad you have still got a perfectly exposed shot out of it :-)

Well done Annick!

Hello Annick,
Beautiful portrait.
Excellent POV.
Sharpness is spot on.
The wet hair and horns give a shining look.
I liked the OOF impalas in the background too.

Hi Annick,
i seem to have missed a few of yours! This one is great, excellent POV from the side with a wonderful blurred background that suggest he is not alone without being distracting. As usual excellent detail and focus etc.

Hello Annick, What a shot of this superb horn on the head. Excellent composition and lovely lighting. Ganesh

Bonjour Annick
quelle belle prise de vue, le profil d'une grande netteté, ressort bien avec en fond d'autres individus.
Merci à bientôt

Hello Annick,

Beautiful portrait of this male impala. Very good framing. Excellent sharpness. Beautiful natural colours. I like the OOF impalas in the background too.

Hi Annick,
I couldnt pass by without commenting on another of this wonderful shots you have got of the male impala.Once again i am quite attracted to the capture of the face with those beautiful eyes.This time i must also add those glorious looking horns to the list, they are magnificent and your PoV gives a great view.
The placement of the subject in the Fg and others in BG adds to the beauty of the shot.Very well done.
TFS & Cheers

Hello Annick

A beautiful capture of this impala.
The pov is wonderful with excellent dof.
The OOF herd in the BG makes a nice backdrop.
Well focused as always with lovely sharpness.
