A Cheetah of the animal park in Mechelen, Belgium.
The global image was too green, so I had to change the color settings.

Nice shot, pity about what seem like wire in front of the cheetah.

Good shot anyway.

Nice portait David!

Focus and exposure are excellent! Artistically, framing is a little tight. Your zoom was set at 155mm, you could zoom out to prevent cutting one ear. I can also see that you were shooting true a fence. Nothing wrong with that, except you should be very carefull to be as close as possible to the fence to prevent the blur effect we see on the left and on the cheetah's head. Also make sure your optical axis is center with fence hole.
But, it is still a nice portrait. TFS
