What a neat capture of a cute cub.You could possibly afford to crop a little off the bottom (and maybe the top)of this photo. I like it though. Steve.

Çok sevimli çok :)
Yoruma ne hacet, otur seyret :)

What a neat capture! I really love it! I would, however, crop this diffrerntly so it falls more in the rule of thirds and it isn't so centered.

Suha, A great capture and composition.
This a cub? What an intense gaze.

Fine shot,


gercekten cok guzel bir kare yakalamissiniz

this is the cutest thing, TFS Ori

Fantastic photo! I love it! Leopards are so difficult to photograph and you managed a great shot! Some slightly different cropping will improve it (blotch at bottom right). I can't make up my mind about the leaves though.

Hi, Suha. This is good timing and a very neat capture of this cute cub in its natural habitat. Agree with the comment below that you could possibly have cropped of the image from both the top and bottom but I still like it. The texture of the tree trunks as well as the color contrasts nicely with the leopard color and markings. I'm also a lover of these big cats.
Thanks for sharing.
I did a workshop and the only change I made was cropping and framing, I hope you like it.
