Hi Farid
There are quite a few pictures of Leopard on TN but this is one of the very best!
Perfect sharpness of the head (the whiskers are stunning!)
Compo is great with the big cat filling the left part and enough space on the right. The natural habitat is showing well and even if many people do not like branches or vegetation in front of the main subject I do really like these natural pictures.
Exposure is spot on although light starts to get low, I tried a WS but this very late afternoon ambiance is lovely and the image is spoiled when manipulated (a bit more contrast gives a nicer picture but destroys the ambiance, so I did not post the workshop).
To me this is a perfect picture, mainly due the "imperfectness" of the branch and the low light, which makes it a fantastic Nature document.

Bonjour Farid,
Quelle atmosphère dans cette image, quelle tension aussi. C'est une toute grande photo du monde animal, naturelle, mystérieuse, parlante. Bravo

Hi Farid

Super capture ... those eyes are mesmerizing! Nice view of the habitat as well.


stunning shot,taking a photo of leopard in wild is very difficult.

Hello Farid,
