Excellent portrait. Would be interesting to know how close you were, hopefully not too near! regards Yiannis

Hi Natley
definitely a fine picture with very good sharpness and perfect exposure, thus technically perfect
here a few hints how to improve the compo
try to get a lower pov not higher than the subject's eyes
avoid to center the main subject, put it to the left to leave more open space in front of the eyes (line of view)
try to open your aperture at a max to blur the background (difficult to achieve with small sensor cameras)


What a wonderful esxpression you have captured of this young cheetah.

Did a quick workshop of your image cropping it and blurring the background.

Hello Natley,
Still enjoying your cheetah series. He seems to be a little perplexed. Great image. Thank you.

How cool is this. You are right in it's face with your lens. Nice setoff from the background although the beast looks like it is well set as it stands. Nice image and well worthy of praise.

Hello cheetah lady!
Great porftrait, thanks for sharing!

Hallo Natley
Beautiful close up of this beautiful cat. The expression on its face is priceless and you have captured it well. The details are outstanding, well as the colours and light. The greenery adds a natural frame around the animal and creates a ideal backdrop at the same time. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
