Hi Srikumar,the pic is very nice and interesting but the quality is not the best for me,you lost some detail on the child and the mon too isn't very sharp,the detail seems better on the grass on the left...no problem..ehhee..i hope that you will appreciate my honest comment.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Indeed not in total sharpness, but the timing was very good, the composition is attractive and the colours look natural.

A very interesting scene caught in the wild...touching too.
It was a very sunny day looking at the shadows on the mother Wildbeest!
A great document.
Nice capture with good clarity and details.
