[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a picture from my archive!

I shot this black buck in a wildlife santuary called Maidanahalli .. which is around 180 Kms from bangalore.

The blackbuck (Antilope cervicapra) is an antelope species native to the Indian Subcontinent that has been classified as near threatened by IUCN since 2003, as the blackbuck range has decreased sharply during the 20th century.

Bonjour Goutham.
Nice to see a picture from you again! Thanks too for your multiple visits in my gallery. It's very kind of you.
Most beautiful shot of this Blackbuck taken in a wildlife parc. The light here is just spectacular! Enhanced by the dark grey sky and the decentred position of the animal and its pose, this picture is just great.
Love it.
Kindest regards

Hello Goutham,
Very nice to see a new posting from you.
A very beautiful photo in splendid colours and good sharpness. You took it from an ideal low POV in a fantastic composition. The dark clouds in the background create a dramatic atmosphere.

Hello Goutham
very splendid composition of the buck in splendid surroundings. The tree and the sky is so well blended to give an artistic composition.


Hi Goutham,
Welcome back! The photo itself is beautiful with its pleasant composition and incredible color gamut, however, it would be much more powerful without the big watermark at the top left corner. Otherwise a stunning image, congrats and tfs.
Best regards, László

The OOF void beyond the ridge on which the Buck stands gives this image a very sublime look, Goutham. The trees behind the subject also add great value to the visual appeal of the picture.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful creation.
