This is a beautiful portrait of this old cheetah with a feeling of sadness in eye. Excellent composition with fine details and sharpness.

this is a unique portrait - very expressive. 'Besides that' it is technically perfect.
Light, exposure and colours make it a pleasant and natural picture of the cheetah.
Best wishes, Peter

This is a very good portret. You have captured so well the mood of the animal. Viewer can feel the concentration of the cheetah. Light and colors are very nice being very natural.

great portrait of this cheetah. His gaze is intimidating...
I like the close composition. Accents its eyes.
Technically there isn't much to say, like always. Just great ;)
Very interesting notes, too.
TFS and have a nice weekend

Prachtig portret in perfecte scherpte. Zo scherp hoort het te zijn, maar mijn foto is dat vandaag niet. Mooie doordringende maar inderdaad vermoeide blik in de ogen. Schitterend licht overigens, wat leidt tot erg mooie natuurlijke kleuren. Goede diepte in de foto.
Big wow! This portrait is fantastic. I love all cats and this one is no exception. Agree with you - it looks rather tired or maybe bored by another jeep full of tourists :-) Great photo with excellent note.

Hi Annick. This one looks as if he is looking down your lens. The look in the eyes and the detail in the fur is first class. With such natural colours. well done TFS.

Nice shot, focus and colours, You had the same problem with strong sunlight on the top of animal's head and you did very well.

Namibia, a photographer's dream! I'm dreaming too about being attacked by a tired, angry Cheetah! Lol!
What a nice cat he is... Look at those eyes! They inspire respect; respect to the king cat! This is a wonderful creature! Cheers,

A wonderful close up of this Cheetah.
As you say,the eyes do look very tired.
Excellent detail and a good informative note as usual.
Thanks for this.

I looked very long and hard at this outstanding portrait. There is almost a sadness in his eyes, like you say in the notes he looks tired and near his end. Still he has great beauty though and your camera work has captured that superbly too. Great work as always my friend. Thank you.

mesmerizing portrait! Strictly frontal approach, direct eye contact and conspicuous face markings create an enormous impact. Finest details in well shaping sunlight. Thank you!
