Dear Erwin
Thank you for showing a herd of Impalas.

It is a pity, that many animals are out of focus - however a big big plus in your image are the natural, CORRECT colours - because, contrary to complicated touch up, perfected by other members, this is the image of Impalas how they look!

The exposure difference between the animals in the shade and those in the bright sun-shine probably would be adjusted by TN Photoshop jongleurs, but in this case does not influence the pleasant overall effect of the image.

I wish you a nice week-end
Warm Greetings from Tzaneen

Hola Erwin

Gracias por tus comentarios....

Buena toma de este conjunto de animales, cada uno pendiente de ver por donde llega el peligro, eso es una buena comunidad, todos alertas. Buena imagen con contrastes estupendos y nitidez. Buen POV.

Un saludo de Antonio

Bonjour Erwin,
Agréable publication malgré une composition un peu trop dense et un manque de profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
