|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|So I have deceided to branch out a little bit from my landscapes. I hope you guys like the shots. This is the first of many photos I will probably post from my recent trip to Africa. This shot was taken in the Serengeti in Tanzania during the great migration. The grass was a remarkable color of green (unlike the usual brown color) due to the tremendous amount of rain that they received for the weeks prior to this shot. The week before we arrived in the park, they had closed the Serengeti to outside traffic because bridges were being washed out, airports were being destroyed, and cars were getting stuck in the mud (leaving tourists stranded all night) due to the large amount of rain. Thanks in advance for your comments!|

Hi Dan and sorry for the delay
This is a splendid capture!
The POV and the pose of both the cheetas here are just great!
I really like the sharpness and the definition of the details on the one in the FG...it looks wonderful!
Also the natural colors and tones are superb, the exposure is spot-on and teh DOF is impeccable, giving somehow such a natural feeling to the shot...making us feel that we're really there :)
Bravo and TFS
PS: looking forward for more ;) Tanzania is a great place for a photographer and i'm pretty sure you have some more tricks up your sleve :))
I'm impressed by the fine pose given by the beautiful animal!
DoF works well in isolating the subject, a well composed presentation and good details in the fur coat...
I also like to take this opportunity to thank you for support and advice!
It has been great and I have learned a lot through the many fine presentations in TrekNature!
